That race would REQUIRE a turbo setup just to finish. Your clutches would last about 2 laps. That area is mondo-ugly waves. I've done that race 3 times in the past on a 2 stroke. It's not easy or short. The whale-craft have a distinct advantage, except in that 6mile run down the coast line. A smaller, lighter craft would have a monster advantage on that part of the course.

Working on pressure reliefs for ski.

I've got to actually place a SD pump on it, and verify that everything clears.

You know, once the 3/8" NPT pipe fittings are actually IN the adapter, the holes are damn tiny. I wonder if 1/2" NPT would be a better choice???

Installed the Riva springs in the head today. What a royal pain in the ass!

Thank You to Amsoil Kevin for the use of his spring compression tool-kit.

Installed the 08 SC oiler yesterday... man what a pain in the ass. The bendix 2nd gear dropped off the shaft and really had me stumped.

Thanks to Duke, I got it all back together without using a hammer.

More functional bling.

Finished the thermostat cooling, 3/8" water lines, over-pressure, TOPS line, 3/8"NPT drill/tap in head (high ass-pucker-factor on this one) SD pump adapter pressure port, and sacrificial anode.

Went to put the pump adapter on, so that I can have it ready to align when the engine drops in, and ran into a major problem.

When I was going to use the 162mm pump, I had the transom plate matched to the pump. NOW, the SD adapter wallows around inside, and since it does not utilize the hollow bolt-dowels in two corners, there is no way to center it.

I talked to Oside, and we were going to attempt some time consuming surgery, etc... After looking closer, this would have never provided enough meat around the adapter to have a blended tunnel. It would have had either a step, or a gap. The material removal was just too severe.

So, instead, I took a stock transom plate, and cut it to mimic the bullet transom. The surgery took 4 hours yesterday, but I think it will work beautifully. I can't feel my hands from all the grinding and sanding...

I also increased the pump tunnel reliefs from 3/8" NPT to 1/2" NPT. I just don't believe the 3/8"NPT flows enough to utilize the larger valves. These should be more than enough.
