Nice! Is that a Tahiti?
Well, it seems like you'll be wanting a long lived/affordable 550-575 horse motor. WAY easy to do!

You are not going to like the valve trane geometry with those tall hydraulic roller lifters.

True....as long as you have enough overboard discharge. You do not want to have a cooling system pressure any higher than ~16 PSI. You'll milk shake the oil because the joint where the cooling...

The 514" that I ran was a pump gas combo. I feel that a 4.440" bore and a 4.140" stroke is a great bore to stroke ratio. With a 6.8" rod it has a very good rod ratio also. You get the pin into the...

J, there's a few of us on here that are running BBF's in our jet boats. I've run a 460", a 466", a 472" and a 514" stroker combo in mine over the years.
One of the things to keep in mind is that...

If the bolt pattern is correct then all you need is the correct length push rod. Remember that when the pedal is at rest there needs to be about .005" free play in it so the master will return all...

If the Crower is the 290R grind, I ran that grind in my boat motors for years and that's a very stout grind. It loves compression. It was originally designed as a circle track grind but is a general...

The 'plastic' looking tits are just that, plastic that's injected at the factory to hold the caps in. Pretty common practice back in the 60, 70 and early 80's. It's a sure sign that the joints are...

I've done it a lot over the years. Go slow and be careful. What you DON'T want to do is jack it up under the balancer with a fully dressed big block. Those things are heavy! Lol.

Front Runners are made lighter than a standard DOT tire, so I'd be careful of punctures with them.........if their even DOT legal. It'll say on the tire whether they are or not.
