In Episode 152 of Finnegan's Garage, Mike Finnegan and David Newbern finally get the 1976 Rogers Bonneville TR fiberglass jet boat on the water. The last piece of the puzzle was to change a car oil pan for a marine-specific pan made by Dooley Enterprises.
The guys found it at shop.socaljetboats.com
Since the Rogers has a built 384ci LS engine with an aftermarket stroker crankshaft, the oil pump pickup that came with the Dooley pan had to be modified and the guys had to install a remote oil filter mounting system because the 10-quart capacity, full-length sump pan had no provision for a factory oil filter location. After a few more mods the pan went on and the boat hit the water for the first time in a long time. Shout out to Kevin Smith at KSR Performance for dropping by to lend a hand and for sticking around to watch the boat run during a rainstorm! lol
