I put this in new members first, time to move it here. This 74 Sanger was in a barn 1/2 mile from my house for 21 yrs. New motor is ready but I'm going through every part of the boat first.

Thanks!! I have a marine cam question, with the wet headers, is the overlap in a drag car cam going to cause water to be injested? Might post that in a different place... hmmmm. My new 496 is for a car i am building, just thinking about a cam swap.

What are the cam specs?
Duration is the important one.

Having the header water plumbed to the drivers seat to adjust as needed.

My jet böté (454, .030" over) baby cam was 254°/264° @ 0.050"
.575"/.578". With water injected Bassetts (from the drivers seat). No problems with reversion.

Just my $0.02

Generally you want to keep duration to mid-230’s to mid-240’[email protected] 0.050”, with a 112-114 lobe separation to prevent them from drinking water.

This is true for logs and snails, and Mercruiser type center riser exhaust. (No water control)

With the water control into the headers, the reversion isn't a problem. And it takes very little water to achieve cool(ish) headers.

Perfect info thnks! Im having to pull the front off in hopes of finding a cam number, hoping its not on the back. I bought the motor refreshed from a builder.
Thanks

Define water control please. Mine has the hoses coming off the thermostat housing using 1/2 inch lines, seems a bit much. Thanks, Joe

Just force feed the headers off the plate. Not moving, no water. Just don’t lift completely at speed, then you’ll have a complete other set of problems anyway!

You know, i thought about that. There are marks on the drivers side of the plate and a corresponding transom plug indicating there was a second pickup mounted. That might also make for a cleaner install, two less lines from the tstat housing. Thanks!!

I added the second pickup just for the headers and it would have worked perfect if i didn't have bolt on collectors on my headers, leaked around where they bolted up.
Nice find.

A better shot as a whole, it's a great idea for a lake boat.

I say sell the headers and run a wet exhaust and go cruise that baby! Most Hot Boat guys hate me for saying things like that :) Here is a 74, 17' 10", I rigged for a friend a couple years ago, we ditched the headers and added a transmission as well. My Sanger is a 77 is an 18' 6" and would it look way cooler with the headers...hell ya, but its a style thing for me as well as how I grew up, these are our family boats and we always have kids all over them, so no headers for us.
Love this project and looking forward to seeing you progress thru the clean up, looks like a super clean C2 sitting in the shop as well, is that your tow
vehicle? :)
