You must be one of them Pennzoil and Amsoil guys!.

Nothing better than Alisyn.....

RT

Still need some pictures.

LOL, no I use the R50 cause the race clubs spec it. Its a pretty good oil, a little dirty, but it lubes well.

If I had my pick, it would be Redline. I used their methanol oil way back when and it is unreal, what an imprivement from castor. After I used their methanol premix, I used their regular 2 cycle oils and was impressed.

I think the Ailsyn likes Merkreez better than these Bombardiers anyway.................... :rolleyes:

ER :P

The real 3.5 litre V-8 carb engines would pull 415-420hp when we raced them in '84. The square exhaust chest is pre-'84 and was 20-25hp less. They ran these in '81-'83. These are powerhead figures as that's what the dyno was at Second Effort. The center is pre-'85 also so I'd guess it's a '83 or so.

Randy,the second one down[the unpainted one] is supposed to be an experimental 4 liter that was never produced.i'll get some pictures of the back and ports and post them.

What is the bore? The 3.5 litre was 3.600". I know of a dozen 4 litres built and the numbers were real high. 485+hp. Cees VanderVelden ran one of the last ones. Absolutely pounded the rest at the Nationals. The block is definitely of the last v-8s. You can tell by the casting.

I have some pictures from this summer out at Buckeye Lake Ohio and the STV which has a V8 on it. Will post them Wednesday sometime. Not sure of the year or litre, but maybe someone can ID it.

Must be an experimental, the casting look to be some pretty rough sand castings. Were I worked in Ohio we did the production V-8 castings in Permanent mold process.

All the race V-8s were sand cast and rough at that. The 4 litre had some deep tranfer port channels and that was the change over the 3.5. Note the Z-port exhaust. 1985 and they were already 10 years ahead of Mercury...to bad they never carried it over to production.

Isnt that the truth. The production motor is a completely different design and no where near as good as the race motor. With a few port lay out changes to the F1 overall design, OMC's looper series would have been been a real gem.

RP, do you know why OMC went the way they did with their production motors?

ER,

Jim Neurstrom was the engineer and project leader on the race V8. I can't remember the name of the guy that lead the production developement. Why the hell they kept it seperate....imagine a V6 that was based on it. I turned my race V-8 9500 for a WHOLE season. Repeat...WHOLE SEASON, 90 laps a weekend 7-8 times a year plus testing.

If they would have built the production motors based on the race engine....they would have RULED the outboard market. Merc was just getting the bugs out of the 2.4 in '81-83, OMC could have leap-frogged them and never looked back. Instead we got the albatross.

allen, keep that chit off acie's boat. it's hard enough now staying in the same picture frame with him going down the track. :D

Craig,there is no such thing as too much,i'm trying to talk the owner out of the 4 liter,then i'll have Galen stroke it and add three stages of nitrous.that would barely be adequate.
