    This is something that has confused me for a long time. I know that we (typically) size an impeller to absorb the max hp that the engine makes at whatever rpm that HP peak occurs. I guess you would go slower if you sized the impeller to absorb the max torque the engine makes at whatever rpm that...
  15. Jet Boats
    I am installing a new oil pan on my 455 and everyone seems to list the torque specs at anywhere from 10ftlb-15ftlb. That seems right for the 4 larger corner bolts but the small bolts on the side rails seem to start deflecting the pan rail at far less than that. The mondello guide simply list 1...

    Where do you get you torque wrenches calibrated? I have an OEM 25 - 250 lb ft wrench and would like to get it recalibrated. Or should I just go buy a new SnapOn wrench as the dealer can get thiers recalibrated (I think)?

    Which is more important in a jet boat? Once I get the dual quad set up on this one I am going to look into starting a stroker for the Tahiti. I have noticed that the bigger the cubic inches on the stroker, the more they refer to the power being low-end and not up in the RPM range. I'm not sure...
  18. GN7 On the Dyno
    Are any of you guys aware of a general (or specific) value for torque per cubic inch, that indicates 100% VE for different compression ratios? Looking for a format that reads similar to below. (values shown are guesstimates I pulled out of my ass) 1.00 ft.lbs./ci @ 8:1cr = 100%VE 1.05...

    So I recently aquired a nice and unmolested BBC Gen IV block. I'm thinking about building this over time and eventually installing it in my jet boat or keeping it as a spare until my current motor finally dies. Luckily, I'm in a position that my current motor is running and I won't find myself...
