    Default Ride plate angle

    Hi guys this is my first post on here!

    I have a 1984 tx-19 with a blown 468 BBC In it and I have a ride plate question.
    What are you guys run for a average up angle? Right now I can not remember what I set mine at right now but I am thinking 3 deg up. I am just looking for a little more top end and I think that my boat may still be a bit to wet @ WOT.

    I added a picture but Its nothing to do with my question, just showing off my boat.

    Thank's Pete

    Nice looking Winger, welcome to the Crew. I think most of us run our's anywhere from 3-5* up, not over five in most cases. fill us in a lil more on the pump/setup and we may be able to help a lil more.

    Default NICE winger

    When I got my old turd it didn't have a ride plate and the clean out was almost inside the boat. Tiger moved the pump back the clean out is half way out ot the boat now. He threw the basic off the shelf set up at it 2degree tapered shoe and 4 degree up on the newly installed ride plate and a Place Diverter half droop and 2 degrees of wedge worked out close to perfect. Most guys run a full droop and 2 to 4 degrees of wedge for lift.

    I have probably read about 30-40 pages on TX19 loader, shoe, and rideplate info in the last few days. My brain is almost smokin from it all!!


    Its funny this thread pops up this morning.

    I put a new loader in and spent yesterday at the lake and made a few runs and ride plate adjustments.

    Near as I can tell I have a 2* shoe (not backcut) that is about 1/16th above the keel. -- or -- The keel hangs 1/16th lower than the shoe. Sorry, Im just kinda learning the lingo and measurements.

    The initial rideplate angle was 3* and it ran 65mph with a stock BBC. I then removed the spacers (3/8 nuts) under the rideplate brace and clamped it solid whick made it about 5* and it fell down to 61mph.

    I know these are wussy numbers, but I cant build an engine before Mardon, so Im just trying to get the pump as dialed as I can and then do the engine this winter.

    So I out it back to 3*. Should I try more spacer and see if it responds to say, 1-2* or am I at the sweet spot?


    Impatient One should know the setup as he had the sister boat.

    Default consistent

    The only consistent thing I've ever been told about these boats is that no two react the same to setup changes.

    4 up, +2 wedge 1/16 above is aOK.. Check to see if bottoms nice and straight, you will be chasing your tail if the bottoms got hook in it.

    I checked with a 4 foot sheetrock ruler. The flat sections are as flat as can be and the strakes are straight as an arrow.

    No hook and I forgot to mention the boat has a setback dominator pump.

    Before I started all this the boat ran 71 mph on gps with stock BBC. Then I put the diverter and a tunnel ram got to 77 MPH. Then we built Bad ass blower motor and the pump could not take it so that is when I bought Pro loader, inducer, 17-4 stainless shaft, stainless AA impeller new hi flow bowl I also got one of thoes add a shoe kit but never got around to get it on Boat now runs 83MPH
    This is the best picture I have of the boat under power going fast will try for a better picture next weekend
    Thanks Pete

    Pete there is a ton of info in the jet section on a TX 19. Do a general search and it will pop up.
    If I'm understanding you right, the intake is not machined for a shoe, I would make that my winter project if it doesn't. Are you running a droop??
