why not use the raw water pump that bolts to the front of the crankshaft?. more reliable with one less belt to contend with and should have the room since gas eng is shorter than diesel.

Boat stands for "Brake Out another Thousand " . Do you know what you call a boat with a hole in it ? ....... a sink .... do you know why boats don't like the number 5 .....because sinko..... horrific jokes aside cool build the boat looks sharp.

I hate diesels in cars. I loved the Cummins diesels in this boat. I looked forward to the rebuilds. But damn I want to see this LS build now!!! Performance and fuel consumption are gonna be interesting.

The springs in the dampening plate is to reduce the shock-load created when the transmission is shifted into gear and the heavy propeller and shaft isn't spinning.
Youre making a huge mistake. D is for dumb..B is for bye.

OMG, I totally overlooked that you are installing an automotive clutch on this thing. NOOOOOOO. The clutches are internal to the marine transmission! Do yourself a favor . . . STOP and overhaul the original Cummins 903s!

You know you could have bought everything you need to overhaul the original diesels for a lot less than what this conversion is going to cost. www.dieselpartsdirect.com/cummins-small-v-engine-parts You are probably going to have to use a different reduction gear ratio in the trans. You will need new props because you will be WAAAAYYYY over propped with the originals. You will probably need new shafts and cutlass bearings if not new struts, too. Are you planning to go full raw water cooling or freshwater? If raw, that engine-mounted centrifugal pump isn't going to work, you need a vane pump. If you're going to go fresh you need the intercooler and all the plumbing to go with that to include fuel coolers, oil coolers . . . Then you have to empty and clean your tanks - and if they are fiberglass, you're probably screwed because there are a lot of issues with fiberglass tanks and gasoline with ethanol in them. You'll have to replace the genset as I doubt you'll have room for a diesel tank for it. Then all your accessories need to be marinized versions because any spark they produce is going to turn the boat into fiberglass splinters if there is a fuel leak - not an issue with diesel. Also, why did you make a "catch can" for the original diesels? They are designed to suck in the blow-by and burn it. It's not like a gas engine. BTW, you lost all that oil in the one engine because it got by the cylinder walls of those two slapping pistons. All that oil got burned in the combustion chambers. There's a reason why you want a "pillow" to shove in the intake of a diesel if it runs away. There is also supposed to be an automatic shut-down for a diesel if the fire suppression system goes off - the engines will just suck all that out and keep running - a gas engine will be suffocated. And, as others have said, your fuel bill will be INSANE!

this is the single most dumb ass project I have ever seen . it is to embarrassingly dumb to watch any more of it . Just rebuild the Cumming's motors & enjoy the boat .

When you set out to build your jet boat and replacement for this boat, I would suggest that you purchase a software package from AeroMarine Research, called "Tunnel Boat & Vee Boat Design Program. I am preparing to build a tunnel catamaran with twin 5.7L Mercruiser I/O engines. I designed the boat prior to purchasing the software. When I plugged in my design numbers to the program, the predicted top speed was ~60 mph. Tweaking the hull design using the software, the predicted speed is now ~95mph.

Caterpillar and Cummings both users 2nd belt to drive the salt water pump that way you can matter anywhere and tension that pump separately mix a lot easier and cheaper

Raw water pump is actually gear driven. They can't afford the risk of belt slippage and they take a lot of torque to spin them. The Cats in one of our boats and the Volvos in another were gear driven. The fresh water pump is generally belt-driven.

I don't know diddly about it, but I have flipped through several boating channels and in a few I have seen where some engines have 2 starters. They are only ever using one at a time, but two are installed... I am going to guess there is a switch that swaps the main power wire from one to the other.. Something you may want to look into... Again, (DIDDLY), but,,, are you sure the water pump is turning the correct direction??

He must have a deal with Texas speed or something so he must use their engines. Imagine doing 5500rpm and going like 30mph, that will be deafening, boring, expensive AF. Please please listen to the folks that know what they are talking about(not me)!

Running the LSX engines is gonna be bad ass, don't get me wrong, but I think it would have been sweet to run a pair of cummins 6.7ltr turbo diesels. I would have yanked all of the emissions crap off of it, upgraded the turbo, injectors, changed the intercooler over to an air to water style and upgraded all of the piping. Then I would have done through haul exhaust out the transom. Then for the transmission I wouldn't have done a reduction gearbox, I would have gone 1:1 since the cummins would be at every bit of 1100ft lbs of torque! That boat would get scootin pretty dang good with the right prop selection! Only thing I'd do with the gearboxes and props is I would have them rotate in opposite directions so they rotated towards each other, so the port side prop turning clockwise and the starboard side would turn counter clockwise. At speed its not a big deal, but at slow speed the steering is more precise. When both props turn the same direction, the boat will tend to walk sideways in the direction they're turning even when steering straight. When they spin opposite of each other then it will go perfectly straight. Either way, that boat is going to be a blast next summer. I'll probably see you out on the Willamette! I'm out on the river almost every weekend. I may even have my new boat which is a Baja H2X with a 496 H.O. EFI that I am looking at getting. Keep the videos coming bro!

Nice sparky open alternators. They have two high current brushes to magnetize the rotor inside, remember? They will, together with the inevitable gas vapors in your bilge, make your boat lift off like a rocket!

This is one of the most retarded projects I have ever seen you could have had that Cummins rebuilt during the first video all because you never even checked the oil and thought no oil pressure was a broken gauge 🤣 them little ass gas motors are gonna be like pissing in the wind on that big boat

Just curious when the installment will be out? Binge watched the first ones over the last two days, craving more. Lol as a previous owner of large gas powered cabin cruisers I'm very curious to see how this all turns out. I've been wanting to step into the over 40' realm of cruising but the expense of the diesel engines and such is scary. Hoping your boat build turns out well and I can profit from this knowledge and be able to make the leap with a lot less worry of ending with a houseboat rather than one that can leave to the dock. Lol Almost bought one that was, but the whole engine nightmare gave me enough pause on pulling the trigger that it luckily sold before I was ready to commit.😁

I worked on a 27ft inboard with 2 327's, a right and left hand. I got to rebuild them both and the only difference between the left and right was how the cams were driven. The right hand had a chain and the left hand used a gear between the crank and cam. I can't remember but the cam may have been different but I don't think so. That was 43 years ago.

Your raw water pump should run off of a separate belt than the serpentin because you'll be removing it in servicing it often

Twin turbocharging each engine with water to air aftercooler will put out an easy 500hp reliably. This is why virtually ALL Diesels are turbocharged.

Maybe he is hiding the gearboxes were on there way too. Plus olde wiring. Twin LS swap is cheaper then IF they can handle the pace.

Should have put a powerdyne Type blower on it . Doesnt need to over boost it but will give it some comfort. That belt tensioner routing will not work by the looks of it. The 3500 lb diet that that riva will have will make a big difference. like getting your big fat friend off a 300hp bass boat.

I strongly urge everyone to help him out like we would these guys at the drop of a hat. Lets give some love to the mechanics from the north batteling more than just car issues. We fight the cold! I have sent money bought merch because I believe in people who believe in themselves.

I'm going to ignore the dumbass idea of replacing diesels with gassers because everyone else has covered that and I'm just going to assume you've already done the stability calcs on removing over half the engines weight and will be locating the required ballast in the appropriate locations. Seriously, broh... just stick with cars. You don't know fuckall about what you're doing here.
