    The reason to run a thermostat, or not. Is going to depend on what the assembled clearances in the Build are. Cold block build (no t-stat) large main and rod clearances, larger bore clearances for ring and piston growth. thicker viscosity oil, The rotating components and oil get rid of most the engines heat. Oil cooler and larger oil pan recommended. Warm block build, run thinner oil, tighter clearances, marine bypass thermostat, regulate cooling system pressure. this type is also more prone to detonation, watch your compression and timing.

    at the Lake Powell Challenge, Deb took the ladies for a spirited ride, in my Tahiti cruiser, Marcee, has an accurate perspective, I believe.

    So Marcee says "Why do you spend so much time shining that boat?" Jason says "So it will look good sweety". She says "If you build it right, the only thing they will ever see is the back of it" ;-))) :drv:

    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?

    78_Tahiti replied to a thread Engine rebuild 460 in Engines
    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.

    78_Tahiti replied to a thread Cam timing advance? in Engines
    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.

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!!
