The Maristar, i heard starts out at about 27 then flattens out to about 9. Are those numbers even close...lol?

Would the X-45 be around 35 degrees?

So how is the wake compared to a flatter bottom.

I would guess that it's real comfy' in rough water...

Thumbs up Another Thanks to Skidim.

The Sun "Was" out in California for 2 great days... Now it's Raining off and on. During the Brief Sun period, i was able to replace the Water Circulation Pump, and polish the One Aluminum Pulley...

The origional Water circulation pump and pulley had utilized 4ea. stainless steel washers to help allign pulley to harmonic balancer and Alternator. Upon replacing Water circulation pump with a New One thru Skidim, I found that it didn't need them.

It had been leaking thru the bottom weep hole for at least one season without being noticed. I did hear a faint squeek and thru continued searching with a maglight, I found the drip drip...

The Pulley looks similar to the Serpintine Pulley Shown.



Those of you who own the 330 Hp LTR know that the aforementioned pulley is like the only shiny part on the engine...lol

Those water pumps sure can go a while before they go out unless it's mine........then it goes to he!! all at once.

Side note - even though you are only using it as a pulley model, that sure is a pretty engine.

That is a nice looking SBF! What are you putting it in? I'm sure not the Maristar seeing as it has a SBC.

What's a SBF and SBC? Is it:

Single Blade Fan?

Soft Bent Finger?

I don't know, these are difficult for me...

Yea, After I saw the weep hole below and the accumulation of rust and water marks, it was apparent that it had been there leaking for quite some time. It was only a faint squeek that got me to lookin' around...

Hi Joseph, Unfortunately that is not the Engine in our boat, However if ours had a heart it would look like the outer appearance of the pictured engine above...

The LTR 330 hp has been doing great and, Knock on wood, has never left me stranded. It pulls great gets pretty good gas mileage considering...

has anyone heard about the newer engines having Catalytic converters? Wondered how that affected hp or smell or loudness...?

Haven't been on here in awhile, any gossip...?
