Re: Need Hull Plans

You neglected to state what material(s) you want to construct this boat out of. That would be more than a passive detail since the plan(s) that you're looking for would likely be contingent on that choice. Just out of curiosity, with what do envision powering this 18 or 20 footer? May or may not be ...

Re: Wiring harness schematic SBC

Anyone have a good Wiring harness schematic for a SBC with carburetor. . . . Have a brand new harness already here. I admit to being a dummy sometimes, and maybe haven't had enough coffee yet, but a SBC w/carb seems a little generic. I'd think that the flavor/type of ignition system your harness is...

Re: 500 Cadillac Crankshaft

No, I do not right off hand. I did a quick look at a couple I had luck with in the past and they are not even listed (or offered?) anymore. :( Back in the day, when they were readily available, the '74 was preferred because it was the only year that the OEM had no recess. I've not needed to source t...

Re: 500 Cadillac Crankshaft

If your guy can lay his hands on a good 500 crank that is wonderful thing. No question that would be the better way to proceed. Didn't mean to imply otherwise; that is just becoming increasingly more difficult to do all the time. If you were used to running the 500 with one of Buddy's cams, there is...

Re: 500 Cadillac Crankshaft

As surprising as this may be to you, you actually have a couple options that don't involve finding a 500 crank which, at this point, could almost be like getting a mortgage. First, you do NOT need to source 76cc heads to build or rebuild a 472. In fact the radical bulk of the 472s produced used the ...

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

Just my 2 cents. It’s hard for that prop to get any clean air... I think that my friend Andy, very radically under estimates the value of his observation. Normally, with radiator below (rather than above) the prop shaft, it is not creating additional blockage to the available would be air flow. Con...

Re: Powering oil tanker with airprops (is it possible)?

. . . These reasons may be remedied, imho. But probably not in retrofit. 1) using electric engines. The only noise will be from the blades hitting the air. (How loud is that, btw?) 2) that can be either done by underwater prop (i think its acceptable to use such technology for reverse as it is 0.01...

Re: Building a new 500 caddy for a 14 ft Viking Need help with top end valve train

The correct answer is completely contingent on the intended use and the subsequent RPMs. The factory rocker system/design is adequate for Direct Drive RPMs provided everything is in good shape. Having an engine though, that's nearly half a century old with that little valve train wear is not likely,...
