Re: Gentry Frame Patterns

Best wishes and prayers for your friend. I remember the hull listed for sale a few months ago. Has he been able to sell it ?

Au contraire . . . we lose big time; the latest conspiracy theory says we would have another four years of Obama.

Re: Buick/Rover 215 aluminum v-8 exhaust manifolds

Congratulations, nice find Buehler. It''s not easy to locate boats powered by the Buick 215 or 215's alone. Gray Marine built engines called the Fireball V8A 160 and the Fireball V8A 136 based on the 215 cubic inch Buick, although I don't believe they were built with the Nicson aluminum exhaust mani...

Re: barrel back 19 in annapolis

Ben Petre,
We haven't heard from you for about a year. Since you are the closest Glen L builder in the country to me, Gaithersburg, I'm curious to know how my "neighbor" is progressing.

Regards,
Gene

Flotation Foam

I'm finishing up a ski boat restoration project and am now ready to add foam under the cockpit sole for flotation and sound deadening. Advice on what kind to purchase and where would certainly be appreciated. I estimate that about 12 cubic feet will be required.
Thanks,
Gene

Re: My current project

It looks like you are quite a craftsman . . . nice work. Skip Gillam in Ft Lauderdale also rescued a G-3 from being trashed. His approach was to install a 215 cu.in. Buick V-8 with a V-drive. I saw the boat in St. Michaels Maryland at the Museum's annual boat show. Skip is also a good craftsman. Pri...

Re: BMW 6 cilinder biturbo diesel for a boat.

I have a PCM 351, 285 HP in my ski boat. The engine sits level and the angle is in the transmission. The transmission is a 1.23 : 1, which is an underdrive unit. So, with a 1.23 : 1, if the engine is turning 4,920 rpm the shaft is turning 4,000. Did I miss something with the "higher shaft speed"? Th...

Re: Buick/Rover 215 aluminum v-8 exhaust manifolds

I have been interested in the 215 cu.in. Oldsmobile since I saw my first one in 1962. I still have a Hot Rod magazine from March of 1985 with an article "Low-Buck Aluminum V8s & Power Parts". While the seven page article features D&D, it also has a wealth of technical information and makes interesti...

Re: Buick/Rover 215 aluminum v-8 exhaust manifolds

If the goal is to acquire exhaust manifolds, as opposed to wanting to enjoy the experience of engineering and casting manifolds,
you might contact Vic Edelbrock or Nicson. They just may have molds on the top shelf in the back of the warehouse collecting dust.
