Re: Fiberglass hardline boat will not run dry help!!

Best money to spend would be on a 2:37 belt drive some of the later models you can swap out the gears.

Call Century

Re: Fiberglass hardline boat will not run dry help!!

What is the prop length from tip to center of the hub, what is your WOT rpm and what pitch mark the blades set on?

You could also call Century and see if your belt-drive house will work with a 2.37:1 gear set

Pics are fine and I understand Working with what you have within a budget. 1st it looks heavy. has a lot of nose weight with all the lights, has rod boxes and look like an extra rod box.

Re: Ls1 hp question

Well if it is an 03 From a corvette they offer 2 options ls1 and LS6. Both are aluminum block, so if is an iron block it is not an LS1 or LS6. Main difference is heads and cam. Factory rating ls1 350hp LS6 400hp. You have no Power steering pump or A/C so maybe a tad over those numbers. IF the heads ...

Re: Need 500 piston

I had a .020 over 472 with small chambers heads, a little work for flow and compression. Ran a Small Cap MSD dist., MSD box and spent a bit of time dialing in the tune. It was on a 14x7-6 alumitec with SS rigging for the gulf.

That motor turned out very strong but had to run mixed fuel.

You said you still you still had pedal left at 5,000 so you're turn those blades over there max. I would see determine my WOT rpm. Then make your prop with ...
