Re: run-in AFR

If you are worrying about fuel washing lubrication off the cylinder walls put some 2-stroke TC-W in the fuel.

Re: 14k rpm 0 deck

I doubt without some instrumentation, such as a knock sensor, you could hear any mechanical contact and pick it out from all the other racket an engine makes. Perhaps with a direct acoustic link listening device like the gizmo with a length of pipe bolted to the engine with a 3/8" or larger hose lea...

Re: 14k rpm 0 deck

LOL Run it up to 8000, pull the head and check it, repeat up to 9000, check it, 10,000, 11,000 +++ etc. Depends on how heavy the piston is.

Re: 4150 4778 Holley carb questions

Figure the 4778 700 like the 750 Dominator the difference is the bell shape boosters, easy to change on a Dominator but not on a 4150. Just get one of the Holley 750 HP bodies and swap everything over and have a really good carburetor. Don't you think he should get aluminum heads and use a roller c...

Re: 1978 454 solid cam, all street..

In the mid '70s a 405 HP rated 454 marine engine used in the common family type jet boats was the basic low compression PU truck engine with a cam that I recall was about 220 @ .050 and .500 lift. I think the LC was wide, 114 or 116 maybe. The engines were rated at 405 Hp with the low-rise CI intak...
