CV16 V8 restoration

Sea star cylinder and linkage clear the risers so thatís good. There will be no power steering with this exhaust system.

And mocked up the required exhaust elbows to connect risers to tips

I will admit itís an awful lot of work to cut 77 pounds out of the boat, mightíve been just easier to use the cast iron manifolds and lose that much weight

Wet joint snails maybe machine and turn at the wet joint?  Or maybe weld up a stainless snail to fit better?  Silly idea, but could you swap them and put the snails forward?  I suppose no power steering is worth a try, find the happy spot with the trim tab.  Worse case go external on the drive, but which is more cost effective, different exhaust or external power steering.   You're making great progress, I kinda like the cardboard exhaust mock ups, I generally just cut and tack tubing, then remove for final welding.

I have considered all of those options, but none of them really seem that they would work out very well.
I donít have the tubing yet but really needed to know that I was going to be able to make something work.
As far as the steering goes the sea star is effectively no feedback

Well now the boat is hanging upside down. I was able to demo the support for the dash and the Gunwhales, and I got the composite material glued in today. I was also able to reattach the pieces I cut off on the side of the engine compartment to make it wider to accommodate the 351.

I also bought some stainless steel bilge vents and got them cut in as well

NICE !
With all the cut outs in dash for steering helm and gauges, dash is weak and flexible on mine.

Yeah ours was actually broken.
I am considering backing it up with a piece of aluminum

What is your plan to reinforce the bow?

Made some minor progress, marked up a possible 30 gallon fuel tank I would have to custom make it from aluminum.

Somewhat concerned about the weight, the 17 gallon Moeller plastic replacement would weigh 110 pounds full, The custom-made aluminum tank would weigh 220 to 230 pounds depending on if I use .100 or .125 material.
And a sad day in the middle of the project, I need the garage to work on cars
