the motor was just rebuilt so and yes i checked everything over already and looks good i have to grease the bearing b4 i go out next though. and i was planning on trying to sell the intake cause its brand new i just lost the box lol. but it doesnt even have a speck of oil on it lol so i might i was looking at a weiand team g intake that they make for it but idk its like 400 bones lol and im broke.Hey welcome to the boards! HJ thats a good cam, but I think for a stock motor the crane Energiser cam and lifter set would be more suitable for that motor! I would venture to say that the motor is only about 81/2 to 91/2 to 1 and if that motor is tired I don't think I would even put a cam in it until it was aleast freshend up, just my 2 cents for what it worth!
And as for your manifold goes, post it on here for sale or trade for what you want! Also keep EYE ON YOUR MOTOR TEMP, if you have not looked at the pump, or the impeller, you might want to, cause if your impeller is going away it will cause problems with not only the pump, but the crank as well!!! make sure that there is grease in the thurst bearing in the front of the pump, no grease will cause the bearing to burn up and possibley freeze up on you! Just make sure if you are going to use it for the summer, go through the boat and check everything out for any possible problems, nothing worse then getting stuck on the lake!!!
