    Exhaust Manifold Replacement / Valve Covers

    My 302 has taller valve covers than stock and they just touch the manifolds. I went with a thick Remflex brand exhaust manifold gasket that has a lot of crush and I have not had any issues

    Pilothouse Resto

    Thank you! Finally got my trim on around the storage area. I decided to leave the sliding doors off of it, I like the open look. Makes it feel like there is more space in the pilothouse

    Pilothouse Resto

    My battery tray might catch on too! Along with a antenna base backing plate... pic 3 is the backing plate. I made way more stuff for this project that I can even remember. I made a spacer/shim kit to perfectly square up the windshield wiper motor too.

    Pilothouse Resto

    Thank you! Since I'm running in fresh water I just made it out of aluminum to make life easy on myself. I did that all on a CNC mill and used Mastercam to design it. Skidim.com actually sells a aluminum replacement but I think it's edging the $300 mark and I couldn't see spending that on...

    Pilothouse Resto

    No worries! I actually don't fish! I built it to just use as a cruiser, I always wanted something with a pilothouse and the styling of the shamrock is beyond perfect. Plus it still fits under the bridges on one of our local lakes, not by much though!

    Pilothouse Resto

    I made it! The goal was not to bolt anything used onto the new motor and I was having trouble locating a new one so I decided to just machine one out myself

    Pilothouse Resto

    It's been a long journey but it was worth all the effort! Some updates I did to my 1983 20ft pilothouse. Made a few of my own items along the way. Battery tray, battery switch mount, switch panel, gauge panel, upper thermostat housing, overhead console and new door tracks to name a few.

    New Shamrock website

    If I click on the link that was shared on the Facebook Shamrock group I can see the new website. Looks great by the way. If I try to go to the website on any internet browser I get redirected back here as well

    "new" engine advice

    If your saving that much money with the crusader I would be leaning that way too! I think enough other people have gone that route that you should be able to get some help along the way if you have questions.

    "new" engine advice

    I have a 20 Pilothouse and repowered with a 302 again. It fits, it's meant to be there. Im in fresh water, raw water cooled so things are simple and there definitely is more room than a closed loop system. But even with adding a nice Edelbrock aluminum intake and a new flame arrestor I'm almost...

    Shamrock 2021

    I'm in the Midwest, ton of inboard wake boats around here. It's the hot thing. They keep multiplying every year. Everyone wants to surf, these shamrocks already throw a big wake as is, you can fish from them, and stay out of the elements on the Pilothouse versions. Could be a marketing angle as...

    20' pilot house deck R&R

    I have not taken my rub rail off! I do have the rope one, if anything I was going to pull the old rope out and put new rope in it but I actually got it cleaned up pretty decent at the moment. Sending you a PM

    20' pilot house deck R&R

    Very nice!! I don't know, the paint job looks really nice in the pictures. But I get what your saying, I rolled and tipped my Pilothouse. I have some blems as well but it was also the first time doing it. Long process doing that Pilothouse with all the angles and edges.

    How did this project turn out? I'm redoing a pilothouse myself and I am curious to see your color combo!

    Reman engine sources?

    I just went with one from Atlantic Marine Engines out of florida. Their lead time was really good and the price seemed fair with a complete gasket kit. 2 year warranty on top of it
