    I run 9qts of straight dino 10W30 plus a bottle of ZDDP or break-in additive in my 466ci BBF; I only use high quality Wix oil filters, no Fram garbage. When I killed #8 rod bearing and the rear main, the shop that cut apart the Wix filter had one heck of a time getting it open to inspect the media; took over 30min to get it apart. They said they can open a Fram in 2min.

    Wrecking my bike a year ago and being out of work for a month didn't help the situation. Just pulled the trigger on the Canton oil pan and associated pieces for the BBC. :rockwoot: As a Ford guy it sure is painful to spend money on Chevy parts but at least I was able to put them on our stocking order at work... FREE shipping! Out here in the Pacific that's a huge deal (see signature) :4_1_72:

    The only thing to especially look out for is the standard stuff for any old boat. The Aristocrat was a winner in ride + performance + looks! Is yours a v-hull or the tunnel hull model (sometimes called SST)? Good score!

    i used to be all about that until i found the small diesels with good turbos. that is what i figured it was for the torque from the big blocks but wasnt sure.

    I’ll say it first. ”There’s no replacement for displacement” Jets require a lot of torque at all speeds. That being said a properly built small block would work just fine.

    im looking at getting into the jet boat world and i am looking at a 78 aristocrat. it will be needing work which im to worried about but i had a few questions these boats. Is there anything i need to look out for with them? Also why do all these boats have big blocks and not small blocks? thanks

    That's basically the same advice we give people as well. Use the oil viscosity to dial in your oil pressure where you want it. One of the best ways to determine minimum weight is to do a prolonged blast to get the oil good and hot. Bring it back down to idle and make sure you still have at least 30 PSI and the pressure shoots up immediately when you rev it. Over 40 at smokin' hot idle, to me, is too much. Like I said, main thing is it shoots right up when you rev it.

    A little boy and a little girl attended the same school and became friends..Every day they would sit together to eat their lunch. They discovered that they both brought chicken sandwiches every day! This went on all through the fourth and fifth grades, until one day he noticed that her sandwich wasn't a chicken sandwich. He said, 'Hey, how come you're not eating chicken, don't you like it anymore?' She said 'I love it but I have to stop eating it.' 'Why?' he asked. She pointed to her lap and said 'Cause I'm starting to grow little feathers down there!' 'Let me see' he said. 'Okay' and she showed him.. He looked and said, 'That's right.You are! Better not eat any more chicken.' He kept eating his chicken sandwiches until one day he brought peanut butter. He said to the little girl, 'I have to stop eating chicken sandwiches, I'm starting to get feathers down there too!' She asked if she could look, so he showed her! She said, 'Oh, my God, it's too late for you! You've already got the NECK and GIZZARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :nutkick:

    Thread resurrection! Wow has it really been a year and a half?? Through work I met a guy (we'll call him George) who used to build boats professionally. He offered to help on the Tahiti project and in exchange I'd assemble his supercharged 540 BBC. I think I got the better end of the deal! LOL! George took a look at what we'd done and promptly found rot in the transom. So out it came. Along with most of what I'd already done... George fab'd a new transom & stringers and glassed them in. The floor is mostly in too. Just a little work to do under the bow. While he was at it he added mounts for the rear seat and also fab'd up a cool curved seat from extra foam core: Next step is for me to install the pump so we can locate the motor. Another buddy hooked me up with a SMOKIN deal on a 500+ hp 454 and Berk with Stainless impeller. Those will be going in and the Olds will be hitting Craig's List! I'm not a huge BBC fan but just couldn't swing the extra cash for my buddy's Edelbrock headed 460 right now. As motivation he took me out on his Cobra Jet headed 429 boat. OMG did that thing SCOOT! I couldn't believe how hard it launched and hit 90+. Even the V-drive guy couldn't believe it. The boat was originally a Panther with the conversion kit to accept a Berk impeller. Here he is blowing a fantastic roost. Everyone on the beach was loving it. Hope to have more progress soon!
