    V-Drives
    After 545 views of my boat (79 Kurtis) on PBF classifieds and no inquiries, it got me to think that either nobody likes Kurtis flats or I'm overpriced. Right now, my asking price is $2000 less than what I put into it with only owning it for about a year. Am I over the top on my price or is it...

    Read a few times on this website about this being the last year for open cockpits for the inboard "flat" classes. That (APBA) will require capsules on all "flat" classes (K, PS, and SS) next year. Wondering too, since it's APBA being involved, if the SE class will be required to have a capsule...

    I was looking through the pics of a recent Delta V-drive get together... some of those rides look like they jacked a motor off an NHRA funny car. Crazy sick! Just curious, is there a favorite block that's a go-to for you guys? The GM 502 seems to be a production boat favorite for performance...

    A few oil pan questions: Old: New: So after a weld repair on a leaking bead by The Bostick I got the oil pan back on the engine, yet again. Checked for leaks this evening .....all is well so it will get dropped back in the boat this week: A clean shop vac set on reverse and a bottle...

  12. 6J Jet - Curious

    Jet Boats
    I've seen pictures of the small 6J jets. Anyone know how much HP they are rated for? How little HP could spin them? I'm thinking about a project that would need a little jet. I'm wondering if the pump out of a junk older jet ski would work, but I think they need so many rpm to build thrust...
  13. Fuel Supply Question - Just Curious

    Jet Boats
    Just wondering if there was some reason why the fuel junction where both my lines from fuel tanks come together only allows fuel delivery from 1 tank at a time. Is there any kind of reason a person couldn't just use a T that draws off both tanks at same time? I'm getting old and lazy and see no...

    Jet Boats
    Has anybody ever put a shorty Powerglide, or some kind of high gear set-up in a Jet Boat? I seen turbo 400's in an outdrive set-up, they drove buy at like 90mph 2k rpms......I think it would look like crap, but there's gotta be someone out there thats done it.

  17. Just curious, how much torque does it take to...

    GN7 On the Dyno
    turn over your engine ? Just finished you the Winterizing project. After all the rocker's were backed off I put a torque wrench on the engine to turn it over. Pump disconnected and alternator off; it took 41 lbs. ft of torque to turn over the 565" engine. It's a pretty cool day in El Cajon...
