Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Heyo - Another quick update. Since last posting I filled all the small gaps between the sub deck and the sides of the boat, and I have also permanently mounted the shaft log and the rudder post. The sealant really is messy stuff - unfortunately I ran out of gloves halfway through the process, and wo...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I believe that the zf63 has a ratio of 1:1.5 - but I do not know for sure. I bought it for $400 off of ebay - it shifts quite nicely, doesn't leak, and was supposedly rebuilt right before I bought it. It came from a man converting his 1987 chris craft center console to diesel. Either way, I believe ...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Thank you Ozzieboat - I have been scratching my head about the heat exchanger for awhile. The only cost effective raw water pump configuration was crankshaft driven. I am making an aluminum "hockey puck" adapter that will fit inside the crankshaft pulley, allowing me to have a surface to mount the r...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hi guys! Its been another year since an update has occurred. Since my last update, I have spent time in University, so I have been away from the boat for quite some time. :( But I have gotten a few small things done. I have run wires for all the accessories I can think of - and I ended up rewiring t...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hi, Its been awhile since I have posted an update. Since last summer, not much has happened - I have the subdeck on, I have the entire Interior built out - I am waiting on the upholstry, and I have the engine rewired - this leaves a relatively short list of things to do before this summer, Including...

Subwoofer Placement

Hi all! I am working on finishing up my Riviera, and I have recently been working on installing speakers in the boat. I would like to have a subwoofer, but I don't have a good place to put one. The best place I can find is all the way up under the tip of the bow, but I am worried about the pounding ...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Thank you! Another update - Got the subdeck trimmed, the gas tank arrived today, and I made an engine hatch. I really don' like the look of the engine hatch: it is far too boxy and messes up the lines of the boat. I am going to remake it whenever I have the time, but for now, it will have to do. I a...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I have done lots of work recently - I remade the front seats, put together a throttle/shift box, and put the bow decking together. The back half of the boat is very incomplete since I still awaiting a replacement gas tank. The tank will determine exactly where I will put the back of the rear seat - ...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hello, Over the last couple days I have done lots of engine work - mating the engine and transmission together has proven to be quite difficult. I have also fabricated motor mounts. Over the next couple days I expect to have the engine in the boat. I have had some issues with the fuel pressure regul...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I have sealed the interior in three coats of epoxy. Next up is to drop the engine into the boat. I have two huge hurdles to overcome. The first being the placement of the shaft hole. I am confident it is in the right place, but it goes right up against a frame member. I believe other riviera builder...
