    No thermostat in my BBF, no way. Like Kreg said oil temp is the factor. Optimum is around 180 to 210

    That 27 footer had some serious freeboard on it. Great for headroom too, instead of being hunched over. Us 6ft plus tall guys struggle with that. All sharp looking hulls too.

    Looks like the reverse bucket is missing there too. Easy fix if you don’t have it. I have a jet o vator (rooster tails) with reverse nozzle for sale too. Nice looking boat too. Do they require mufflers up there in Canada?

    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!!

    Hey Bob, murres my $.02 for all its worth, and it ain’t much. Eanyone’s 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 there’s 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!!!! I’ve 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.

    Brand new Holley double pumper with mechanical secondary. So I doubt it needs to be cleaned yet. All good suggestions, I will be checking everything under the sun once the sun actually shows up.

    Hi Bob, this may sound odd, but have you had the carb completely rebuilt yet? Also, is the any chance you have did a leak down on the entire assembled block? Also, once you thaw out, make sure you are not sucking in air to any of the fuel line or fittings anywhere. It really doesn’t seem like a timing issue as much as a fuel delivery system, or possible spark or spark plug issue. I’ve have new dizzy caps with fractures in them causing arcing inside the cap too. But just tossing it at the wall brother. Keep us posted. Dean.

    Perhaps you misread or I misspoke. It’ll run 4400 to 4500RPM. So unless I’m looking at the wrong chart, that’s 326hp and 380 ft/lbs torque with an A cut impeller.

    If the primary jet was too small, wouldn’t it run lean? And perhaps it is but everything points to it running slightly on the rich side. i can hardly wait for summer!!!

    Thanks, I enjoy damn near anything fast. bikes, cars, boats. Being a mechanic, i've known nothing but, this is my life. Used to build street cars in the early 70s in Southern California, Van Nuys Blvd. on Wednesday nights. Friday and Saturday nights raced the beach from Manhattan down to Redondo Beach.we used to ride our bikes up past Pepperdine University to the rock store. raced Mulholland, Topanga Canyon. long before all the things you see on the Internet now, we were doing back in the 70s. Didn't have as nice of bikes as they do now days, but it sure as hell didn't stop us from having fun. It would appear were kindred spirits and the rest of your group. Thanks again for extending the invitation to a like-minded idiot.
