The cam lobe to lifter interface is the critical one, and the one addressed by CR's break in service. They do number and box up the lifters, obviously- otherwise this would be pointless.

A proper head service (including vj) will cost 75-85% of a pair of rebuilt gt40p's, at least around here. I wouldn't put a dime into the stock heads, but that's just me.

You have it backwards. MC used standard rotation engines most commonly, with LH props. LH props back to starboard.

Reverse rotation engines mated to 1:1 transmissions use RH props and back to...

Prussian blue will confirm if your fit on the taper is ok or not... Lapping compound would be needed to address a poor fit.

'07 v8 4runner with 185k here. I've replaced the front calipers but that's about the only thing I've done to it other than routine maintenance. Did the timing belt and water pump at 110k.

This does not sound like a gasket failure. Did you remember to re-torque the bolts after a few heat cycles following reinstallation? If not, there's a good chance they'll loosen up.

In case you...

I've seen hand tight strainers cause moderate overheats at idle... Air leaks! Not sure how water pressure would help seal a leak [lol]. I've found tightening them down more aggressively stops this....

In all seriousness, there is no "magic bullet" when it comes to prop selection. There is no prop that would push a x-star to 80. You can't simply add pitch and make the boat faster, it just doesn't...

The cooling system isn't cooling if the engine isn't running, as the RWP isn't forcing in cool lake water. The residual heat in the hotter parts of the engine (comb chambers, exhaust runners) will...

Can't tell much from the photo... Casting number of the intake will tell you which port style it has... The definitive clue is the casting number of the heads but you have to pull a valve cover.
