Re: 427 SBC

I am running a 383 with a stinger 2.38 box turning an 82" Sensenich R series between 5200. The prop is set just past the second mark. I figure you will be pitched at the 3rd mark with the additional HP. I am running a long hub. You may grab more air with a short hub and longer blades. The blades I h...

Re: Does the dark side really have cookies????

A built 383 will put you in the 5K to 6K range and buy you 450 to 500 +- in Torque and HP. A build 383 runs well and is dependable. 427 MAS rigged from them ready to roll is in the 12K range and should be in the 600 HP and Torque range. There are countless options and price variables. I run the hell...

Re: new 383...what oil

Forget changes based on time. I run my 383 between 3400 and 5200 for hours at a time. Your motor will be in the upper RPM range when you ride. Change your oil and filter once it smells bad, and by then should look off. Change your oil and filter together, use racing oil as it has additives that will...

Re: New boat , 2.68 ox box with 76" 3 blade r

The the resistance of the Gearbox and prop should put you very close to your expected Max RPM (If it doesn't you will never reach your maximum potential) Your Max RPM is dictated by quality of your motor build and best measured in piston speed FPM (Feet Per Minute). If you have a new build you must ...

Re: New boat , 2.68 ox box with 76" 3 blade r

6200 Engine RPM / 2.68 Gear reduction will put you at 2313 RPM on the prop. Verify what the max RPM rating is for your particular prop before reducing any pitch it may be 2400 RPM many of the 3 blades are, some are 2800 RPM. If you add more it will bring your prop speed-tip speed down and you may ge...

Re: New boat , 2.68 ox box with 76" 3 blade r

Take a sturdy rod and clamp it to your transom so you can gauge the adjustments past the mark. Make very small adjustments. I've seen some 383's with 3 to one way over pitched and running great. Just don't lug your motor. Your motor has a sweet spot where your HP and Torque will work together. Small...

Re: Area 3A South water dropping steadily

The water is low but not too low, I would dare to say just right. I Ran from 40 Mile bend on Tamiami Trail up to the tower and on to the Rez land just below 75. Some of the trails pushing east and west are lightly patchy at worst and most if not all of the North south trails have plenty of H20. I ra...
