    Thats some good stuff,especially the intake manifolds,Are they Rossier? I always read that those early LTD boats had jet pump issues, so much that back in the day 20/20 did a story on someone killed on one because of it? anyone remember that? probably 10-12 years ago

    Is that an oem crank? How much did you pay for it? What brand gaskets are they?

    I am doing a similar project now. Did you open up the exhust port a little? Pics? What clearance are you running on the wisecos?

    Hey sorry for delay. Took it out today ran realy good slight stumble down low i think its due to the extra oil.

    This is a OEM rebuilt crank i got from PWC Engine. It has WSM rods witch have the wrist pin oil holes and the lower pin has two oiling windows. The gasket was WSM they fit pretty well. I did port match that gaskets after the motor was port matched. The exhaust i just cleaned up and port matched and smoothened it. I did the wiseco specs and the ring gap is slightly looser then the wiseco specs. Ill post more pics.

    Well took the ski out yesterday runs good got a bit of lower throtle stumble like a misfire I think the excess oil is causing this. Well drove it for a bit and half tank later did a quick blip and I hit 66mph on the dream meter pulls pretty hard for the rich jetting in it right now.
