  1. GN7 On the Dyno
    I'm wondering if anyone can give me a rough estimate on my horsepower/torque numbers? I never really thought about it until a friend asked me about how much power my motor is making and I really have no idea,,,here goes its a 454 .030 over standard deck height not decked, with 781 heads (no...

    I will be looking at a possible purchase of a Rayson Craft SK Jr. (16' Outboard). I believe most of these were produced in the mid-late '60s. Might I find a Hull ID number? Where would it be, and what would it tell me? Eric

    1976 Brendella. Can anyone help me figure out if the boat is a heavy medium or light layup using the letters on the hull. BCPF are the first letters any help would be greatly appreciated I've been looking for hours and can't come up with anything thanks in advance.

    What A/F ratios are you guys seeing that work well for a Naturally Aspirated BBC? My engine seems to want a richer mixture on the ramp up to WOT, (about 3/4 throttle) then it actually does at WOT itself. Is that normal?

    Hi All I've re-done the casale diagrams and re-entered the numbers that cross over to the parts list so that the numbers are legible - hope this helps someone.

    Wags/Steele/Paul/Whomever: Trying to move a 477 BBC short block for a friend that doesn't know the fine details of what he has (it was his spare engine) These are in a GM107 / 3999289 454 block... Pistons are stamped on top of the domes with 54100 , they have a pretty tall dome even for a BBC...
  9. GN7 On the Dyno
    Local guy flowed my heads to see what i have, their history was a little murky on what all was done when i got them. I'm going to an aluminum, by the time he could make these better i would be into them way too much. Are these numbers legit to a close to factory port or did some one jack them...
  10. GN7 On the Dyno
    Picked up a set of used 990 heads as mine were destroyed. They have been worked over pretty well. 2.35/1.94 stainless valves, fully ported/polished, heads shaved to 113cc combustion chambers. All work was fresh with zero miles on the heads. I've pretty much already decided on the isky 280 mega...

    Hi, I have a good (fresh) 454 that has been sitting for many years.... wow, like just shy of 30. Time flies when you're having fun. It was in a hooligan street truck, PO had to go to prison for a bit and I bought it hearing it run and it was strong. Never used it so I just started to...

  14. Outboards
    Where can I find the part number or serial number on my lower unit and mid section of a Mercury 200XRi? The lower unit and mid section would have nothing to do with the ECU or electronics (i.e. charging system) would they? I am just trying to make sure everything I have in a certain motor is...

  16. V-Drives
    A very helpful CampbellCarl suggested I post this in the v-drive section since it is "The other thing is that the members that hang out in the V-Drive section are MUCH older........and you need an old guy to answer your questions." I'm trying figure out what class U-52 would have been. I...
  17. PB Open Water
    Trying figure out what class U-52 would have been. I thought these were the circle boat numbers but not sure. This photo was probably taken in 1966-ish at the old Paradise Cove in Parker. It's a AquaCraft flatbottom with a Chrysler 426 Wedge when this was taken. Around 67 it got a blown fuel...
