So what Kinda parts you have in that mighty mouse? I built a 383 over the winter and love it.. runs like a raped ape... around 400 hp on a good day... went up 4" in pitch and went from 59 to 73 so far.. still going up 1" more in pitch to bring the rpms downt to around 5300...


good luck and it looks great...

I had a par of 383's in an old Scarab I used to have. You can REALY make them run good. Good luck!

That thing looks good.

What kind of valve covers are you using?

Is that your original pulley/belt setup? I'm running an alpha, but have considered going to a bravo style pump, which would mean I'd have to go with that same setup.

Traviss... been following your posts about the PP am thinking I'll be playing the prop guessing game soon myself... and will prob find out the cost of a couple rehubs as well ... spinning this Volvo I am kinda limited..

I got this engine from Doug at Powertorque decided on the serp belts for some reason. ... less to go wrong really...and carry one extra belt ...my old set -up was v belts... I just got everything new for this engine.... from starter to power steering pump .. everthing.... although I am left with a sbc on the shelf and all the acc. I'll find something to do with them.. need to find a sweet 16 w/out an engine for my little welder

Philip ...here's the boat

no she passed on the painting.... I had Speedmaster in Deland go thru the drive .... they also painted it ... Kinda sucks as this was suppose to be a fairly quick project...and the time frames I was told the work would be done in were faster than I could have finished ...well we all know how that goes ...could have done all this myself... Live and learn
