Re: Hobbies

Love those GT-X1s! Very cool modifications, glad I don't have to pay the insurance on one...

And ChrisCraftCrazy, My dream is a triple cockpit barrel stern - Macatawa Bay Boat Works had a modified (Big Block Chevy instead of that silky inline six) that I drooled over.

Great stuff!

Re: Rocker Arm Shaft Stand Height needed

Theo, I had a pair of 390 rocker shafts I was looking at and the pedestals looked identical, same width and height but I don't have them anymore to verify the sizes. I will take a measurement of my 462 pedestals tonight and post my findings. You are about six hours ahead of me as far as time so you'...

Re: 430 Merc runs 14.02 at 101.5, 420hp

420 horse, but how many million pound feet of torque?? Horsepower sells cars but torque wins races!

I wonder what real numbers my 462 will put out?? I need to find a local shop to dyno it...

Re: Output shaft question 66-68

You build the drivetrain to match the vehicle or its intended use. Seeing as a stock MEL makes the most torque and horsepower at a very low RPM a stock stall converter or a little higher RPM is fine. Gearing would be my concern, but a Mighty Max is so light any gear ratio would probably be okay. Als...

Re: Output shaft question 66-68

John - Just to add some more info. The C-6 is a C-6. All of the C-6's (that I am aware of) used the 31 spline output shaft - except ours (lucky us, huh?) If you are not comfortable removing the transmission and disassembling it you can have a shop replace the output shaft housing and output shaft wi...

Re: Chris Craft 430's

So, for the timing components - is there an idler assembly or is it gear-to-gear (crank to camshaft?)

If it is gear-to-gear you can't just get a regular 430 camshaft ground as the cam rotates opposite the crank in that configuration... Just wondering!

Re: Chris Craft 430's

I would LOVE to see a close up of that gear drive timing set!!! Wonder if it would fit under the passenger car timing cover??

1966 C6

I have a good condition c-6 and torque converter for the 1966-68 462. I think this will also fit the early 460 engines. It was rebuilt and has less than 2000 miles on it, but I do not have any documentation to support this so I am advertising it as "good used". It has the three spline output shaft (...
