    I have this 4 port bypass setup on one of my boats . It keeps the engine in the 160 deg range all the time even in 34deg water . http://www.performancejet.com/cooling.html scroll down the ford stuff is at the bottom part of the page. My not work with the big hei distributor. A pressure release valve is very important , The ford 460 does not like a lot of cooling system pressure . I like to keep it under 13 psi .

    Having my 460 built to a Marine 528cid Stroker by Barnett racing. With the jet drive providing cooling to the motor so do you run a thermostat like you would in auto application ? These pic fr earlier last year motor at Barnett now so I'm doing research. With this much money invested please explain proper cooling. Thanks so much. Sleekcraft Streaker

    I just bought a 74 eliminator with a 455 olds and a berkeley jet unit i dont know the design name of the hull. I just spent a week fixing the leaks in the transom and took it out for a run. Just love the BigBlock power.

    I'm running a zero decked, 4.3 stroked, .040 over BBF, at about 10.2 to 10.6 to 1. Ported 1970 police interceptor heads, and a custom solid lifter cam, Mine slams the rev limiter, I have set at 6100 rpm. I am running an A/B at the moment, but could prolly use an AA to get the most out of my new little monster.

    I think I'm starting to get a feel for what you are talking about. sounds like the engine goes flat after 3500 rpm. or as we say "lays down" ,Almost every time this situation is present. It is a Carb issue. Holley DP's for the most part, are pretty fat {rich} out of the box. Sounds like when all the way in it, you may not have enough fuel volume, to support your engine demands, this is where an O2 sensor is nice. but with a clean set of plugs, a warmed up engine, make a hard pull up to 4400, hold there for about a minute, then shut the key off, and take a plug reading. a fuel pressure gauge, will help you see if your fuel system is up for the task as well.

    So, your saying it needs to warm up 22 degrees just to be zero degrees??? I’m thinking your boats not the only thing with a degree issues....❄️❄️❄️ Someone needs to let Al Gore know his theory is DEAD!!!! Hang in there a Bob, I’ll take pics of the Billy B’s Boat/Rod show in February for you. And to think it was 79* here today....sheeesh!!

    Here are a few more pictures. The big boat was a 27' cruiser. We had made only one of those. We were thinking about mass producing those as well.

    Here is the open bow boat that we manufactured. We didn't come out with a whole lot of these. This would have been in the 79-82' time frame, about the time we were closing down shop. The colors of that boat we matched with our customer's van.

    Hey Bob, murres my $.02 for all its worth, and it ainít much. Eanyoneís as we should know by now are combustible air pumps. That being said, start with the obvious here. Exhausted outlets- are they clear and free flowing? Mare the heads free from mismatched gaskets/block to heads, intake tract free from obstruction also, carb matched to engines CFM flow rate? Does it have a acceptable amount of fuel to air ratio through the power band? What about air filtration, is it restricting flow? Then thereís the whole correct amount of spark voltage and correct plugs and wire? Correct coil voltage and resistance on wires? All this can be verified in a single weekend or a day with a buddies help and a delicious lunch !!!! You know what you got in that hull, just make a list ans have at it. You can do it!!!! Iíve seen your work brother, you got this. Dean 👍

    Already switched to electronic ignition. No capacitor. Top of my list is ignition timing though. Seems as though trial and error is really the only right answer. Either way I’ll be having fun on the water.

    What I thought was carb and or maybe pump problems on my old (not Olds) motor was simply the capacitor. Cheap and easy test before tearing the motor down again.

    And it does go straight to 4400. This one is hard because I’m describing a feel/sound. It isn’t struggling to get to 4400, but it feels (to me) like it’s unhappy about doing so. This leads me to really only be comfortable running it around 3500. in my other boat which has a pretty mild 454. 5200RPM all day long and smooth and happy doing so. I realize they are very different engines. But given the time, money and care I’ve got into this 455, I’d like to think it’s capable of pushing that 400hp mark.

    You stated it labors after 3500 rpm....but will go to 4400 ish. Thats strange....when you smash it out of the hole...once the pump is loaded it should go right to you max rpm asap. Or at least every jet I have ever been in does. Weather you are going 10 mph or 50. Not that I dont believe you...just never seen one act like that.

    As I promised, here is an update with a couple of pictures and a pricing document. We had the photos professionally done in the 70s. The document was a pricing list we included in our sales brochures.
