LS manifolds?

Tue, 05/19/2015 - 15:04
Picked up a 6.0 for Mrs Infomaniac's Seebold.

Haven't seen much in the way of LS jacketed exhaust for under the hatch.. Any suggestions?

Marine power has a stock Merc appearing model. Hoping for something like a stainless marine appearing exhaust.

Trailer wheel bearings

Tue, 05/19/2015 - 11:48
Last weekend I replaced all of the wheel bearings on my trailer. It's new boat to me and they made just a little bit of noise when I jacked up the trailer and spun the wheels.

I got wondering why the sealed front wheel bearings on my Expedition have 164,000 no maintenance miles on them and how come that style of bearing has never been adapted to a trailer? Probably more expensive up front but less headaches in the long run.

New 427 TD help?

Tue, 05/19/2015 - 05:55

Hi folks!,

Well it’s been one hell of a winter, but looking like it’sabout boat season again. Just finished up putting engine back into car, now it’sboat time!

I have a new power plant for the Stevens, it’s a 247 Tall Deck,with 0 hrs. I pulled out the 454 as I lost a cam lobe last year and had thisone ready to rock, so in it goes, and will be building the 454 when I roundparts up.

Please remember this is for a ski boat only…

I installed a Edelbrock RPM Performer Duel Plane intake,with the spacer kit. Now am looking for an adjustable collar distributer tofit. Now I have only run HEI distributers in all my boats and cars, and can’tseem to find an HEI with an adjustable collar…

Question #1: Can I mill off an existing collar of the olddistributer and put a clamp on style of collar to adjust to the correct height?

Question #2: If I can’t use a plane jane HEI, what do I needto get my system up and running? Any suggestions? Max RPM will be 5500. Most ofit’s life is loafing along at 3k or so.

Thanks for the help,

I have a question for racing safety folks

Mon, 05/18/2015 - 20:10
Does anyone here know much about EMS support at the drag boat races? I assume that there are trained people to stabilize and bring patients to the dock/ramp to meet an ambulance, if need be. I am curious about The process to become affiliated. I am a career Fireman/Paramedic in AZ. I am also a Certified Dive Master and Rescue Diver, with some very limited experience with boat salvage (w/ air bags). I would love to be able to help provide on the water EMS for races. I have Medical Direction as a paramedic and can provide full ALS life support, I thought that it would be a cool experience to be involved with the races at some level. I'd love to talk to someone more about it, but don't really know where to start.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Nik C.
