    Planning to buy a Place Diverter, new valve covers, a silver metal flake steering wheel, all new gauges and a completely re-wire the boat and trailer.

    Not the performance based upgrades I wanted, so looking good will have to make up for being slow lol

    Last I heard Kreg you had a beautiful little wood stove, that and a small oscillating fan will get you to lite hoody temps in a hurry! Except for a few cosmetic things just waiting for liquid water and its test and tune time. Then fix everything all summer!!!!!!!

    Well, I got most of my 6-71 stuff lined out....blower, snout, belt adjuster, manifold for OEM style heads (that I won't be using because I have early A-460 style heads) a new Trick Flow tunnel ram (for the A-460 heads) that I'm going to mount the blower on by making an adapter plate to go between. I've ordered all new bearings, seals, gaskets and bolts for the blower and manifold to blower, a crank drive hub that incorporates a crank trigger/ timing ring into it and a short MSD dizzy.
    Now, I know all you think that all that stuff is destined for 'Ol Thunder, but that's just not the case. I thought it over and I can't afford to build a bottom end for the boat motor that would handle 1,200 horse.......AND a whole other engine for the Rail too, so all the blower stuff is going into my Dragster and will be a blown injected alcohol set up. The boat will remain a dual quad tunnel ram pump gas down sized version of it's former self.....something that I can cruise all day on a tank full of affordable pump gas and pull the dentures out of skiers.
    Next round of parts for the almost 1,300 horse blown alcohol set up will include a Bird Catcher injection hat, a aluminum timing cover that mounts my fuel pump from Paul Kane, a fuel pump, pulleys and a big rubber band to drive it all. I'm waiting on my D0VE block so I can have the splayed 4 bolt center 3 main caps installed on it. I already have a forged 6061 Lunati 4.150" stroke crank, a set of GRP 6.8" aluminum rods and a set of Diamond 4.440" domed pistons (advertised at 14:1). I still have a few other pieces to buy yet.....like pan, oiling system, a roller cam and timing set, gaskets etc.
    Sorry guys.....I would have liked to have seen 'Ol Thunder get all the goodies but my budget just won't allow for that many Big Boys Toys.......

    ROFLMAO.........Oh, you don't know the half of it! lolol
    I will admit that things, financially speaking, are the best that they've been in the past 8 years......maybe I should have gotten rid of the 'other half' sooner lol.

    Thanks for the offer Roger....I have one as well. They put a ton of moisture in the air....I pretty sure I read/heard somewhere thats no bueno for fibreglass.
    I havent had the coin for triple wall pipe to get the stove rollin.....nor have I welded the holes in the top of the stove.
    It would have come in handy a few weeks back my furnace went into limp mode....was 51* in my house for the better part of the week.
