    an Olds engine plays by a different set of rules is all, they can be made, to be very reliable, with quite a bit of horsepower. However High RPM's often hurt the BBO. Most people don't remember, this was a luxury car engine. They rarely saw a spirited run of 4,000 rpm for no longer than 1/2 mile. In a boat, with a worn pump, rpm's can easily exceed over 5,000 rpm's.

    Just finished installing a Forged 4.3" stroker crankshaft in the Cheetah, seeing as how I bent the cast crank that was in it.

    ]Here is a short video, about keeping oil where the pick-up tube needs it. I modified a Milodon Jet Boat pan (which had issues) by merely adding a pair of trap doors, making a new windage tray. I also recommend, a larger diameter, oil pick-up tube and screen, for the oil pump.

    The Oldsmobile, is a great torque monster of an engine, just keep in mind, they don't like sustained full throttle runs.

    The only thing about the no wake zone here, is they installed a little speed bump!

    Q1= that bar is really that strong and you’d be better off to buy a cleat to moor with. They make a cleat that recesses into itself for a more flush look, and is made to moor with. Those rear bars are only for swimmers to pull themselves up on the transom area, as for the short bars behind the drivers, one end should(?) have a small tab tack welded, and the other end is glassed over. It was for a passenger grab handle. Both add value and style specific to the Carlson unique designs. But at the end of the day, it’s your boat, your decision....Dean IMHO...

    I make custom Stainless steel muffler to fix the “loud as heck” non-sense!!! Also GLM makes OEM all aluminum exhaust manifold and everything to do a through transom dump, and retain your ‘Stealthy’ look. I ran long tips on mine with my mufflers, sound awesome, just didn’t piss off Mr. Ward, gotta keep the peace... helped to him get a new motor though.... Two new styles of end caps now!!!
