Re: 350 SQUEAKING

Gary raises an interesting point. When I read your description, I initially figured you were referring to a ring land when you mentioned compression. Hence, my following thought was that it sounds like detonation, in which case the other seven had been exposed to the same scenario. Where did the pis...

Re: 6.0 vs 6.2

No intention or desire whatsoever to sound like a pessimist, but it sounds like you are setting yourself up for disappointment. Unless you are knowingly going to such an expense, to arrive at a comparatively lethargic end; it sounds like you should likely have more engine/gear than that and/or start...

Re: Big block or small block

First be aware, that in general with a V8 and a belt drive on a 13' hull, you are coming out of the gate at least a little ass heavy. Not to imply that isn't something than can't be done successfully, but rather is something that can not be overlooked. Naturally, when the bottom is straight and true...

Anyone have a good Wiring harness schematic for a SBC with carburetor. . . . Have a brand new harness already here.

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.

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 ...

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.
