    Is this a jet drive....or IO. If its a jet....what jet is it. As a general rule....unless adding a blower,turbos, or NOS....The main way to get more power out of small block is gonna be more cam and compression. As another general rule more cam is gonna drive the proverbial power band higher in the rpm range....which in turn will usually facilitate a smaller impeller. As others have stated go run her and see what it will do.

    In a word Yes! Competitive went out of business in the early 90’s, then reopened again, then went bankrupt again. Now permanently closed. Competition is a different brand for Heavy hauling like Bull Dozers.

    Check all the wires to and from the starter and fuse block too. The motor will still turn over with no spark. Pull a plug wire of, used a extra to a grounded surface. Turn over the motor and see if the plug sparks? If it does, it may just need fuel. Double check all your electrical connections, as copper wire breaks down over time and if your moving stuff around, may have knocked something loose. If you have a wire reset relay, push that too. All that load, may have tripped it, Or possible popped a fuse. Keep us posted. Or you can PM me too. As for reverse rotation goes, it makes no difference as long as the motor is stock rotation, as to position of the starter. The only time it DOES MATTER is when you have a twin engine or a factory ‘reverse’ rotation engine to correct for torque steer on non counter rotating drives. I have twins in my 27 ft Biesemeyer, but one drive is set for counter rotation. Let me know if I may be of help.

    Welcome to the madness! You should be just fine with that small of a hull. Torque will help spin up your rpm's faster but small blocks are easier to spin high rpm and that is what will determine your top end speed. Take it out and feel her out to see how she already performs before you start going crazy on pump mods and performance adders, sounds like a fun little ride!

    Bought my first vintage jet boat a few weeks ago, a 1985 Cimarron 16 foot with a 350 chevy/indhar. Just doing some tune up and maintenance on it. I know it has a different carb than original but not sure if everything else is stock or not. Guys that have had small block powered boats, were you happy with them? Or do they really need big block torque? I would be happy with 55-60 mph top end speed with decent acceleration out of the hole. Any performance mods to the engine or jet drive that are a good bang for the buck?

    Laddie, Just got my shinning new windshield mount. When you think that personal kindness has left humanity, you find out your wrong. Again thank you. V/R JM If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you can read it in English, thank a soldier.
