Don't forget to fill hull with water otherwise you just have a rudderless kite.

Re: Hurricane Damaged Insurance sales

I spoke to a gentleman over the weekend who participates in aircraft salvage and he's heading out in a few weeks. Apparently, Texas Air Salvage will be the place to go but these planes will sit, in some cases for years, until the insurance settlements go through. He's a member on this site so he mig...

Re: O540 10:1 piston or leave it stock?

10:1 will give you more power. If you go that way, you might as well do a cam to get the most out of it. Down side; more power = more heat. With the stock pistons, you can run 93 octane in a pinch. No can do with 10:1 (of course you can, because somebody is going to say you can just because I said y...

Re: Mess At The Ramblin' Rose

As far as any fines, that's a long shot. There's no tag on the gator in the picture and no evidence of it having been harpooned as they claim. I know that gator well enough that I know it wasn't. Where they pulled the gator up onto the deck and where the shell casing was left is where the gator like...

Re: Mess At The Ramblin' Rose

I legally own the camp and dock. I lease the land under it. Even with No Trespass signs (which mine aren't up right now), it's nearly impossible to enforce.

Mess At The Ramblin' Rose

Who's the peckerhead that killed the big gator at my camp then pulled it up on my dock, bled and gutted it, then left the mess for me to clean up? WTF is the matter with you? The very least you could have done is taken a bucket and rinsed it off. There's only a few tags for 2A and I'm reaching out t...

Re: And The Journey Begins

And there you have it. Unplugged the narrow bands and now she's running steady at a nice, big, fat 11.8, dropping to near 10 on acceleration and settling in around 10.6 at 5,000 and above. I think we have a winner. Running closed loop had the ECM searching too hard for stoich which had the AFRs all ...

Re: And The Journey Begins

One of the things the tuner and I talked about was possibly running the engine open loop rather than closed. I know that the ECM will go to a pre-determined richer setting if the O2 sensors stop giving feedback or are disconnected. The ECM, in closed loop, is looking for a stoich condition; awesome ...

Re: And The Journey Begins

Those AFRs look lean to me for a supercharged engine. Even for a supercharged motor in a car. I would also trust the plugs before the tuner. The plugs are smarter than any tuner when it comes to the conditions inside of your engine. What plugs are you running? What is the heat range? Are they reces...

Re: And The Journey Begins

From what I'm hearing you say is this guy that is tuning your ECU doesn't really know Airboat application, am I correct with that assumption? No, he has done a number of airboat applications. In fact, a well known individual in the airboat world is the person who suggested I send my ECM to him as t...

Re: And The Journey Begins

Thanks CMB. I'll definitely take a look at it. Pretty much, this is what I have; at steady RPM, the AFR is bouncing back and forth from about 14.5 - 15.3, mostly centered around 15.0. Upon acceleration, AFR drops to low to mid 11s, up to around 12, sometimes flashing down into the 10s. Once steady R...

Re: And The Journey Begins

Diggin your ECU can't be remote tuned? The only way to truly tune it correctly is doing it running and being under a load. Unfortunately, that capability does not exist (at least that I know of) for MEFI 6 ECMs. There's only one person doing tunes and he's in California. If there are others that ar...

Re: And The Journey Begins

What RPMs was it lean at? Because it was the first time out on the new rotating assembly, I kept it pretty conservative. For the 2-1/2 hours or so that I put on it, ran 3,000 - 3,500 RPM most of the time, hit 4,000 a few times and right near the end of the day, ran it up to 5,000 for a couple secon...

Re: And The Journey Begins

Turns out the AFR was correct; plugs show a real lean condition. We didn't have the fuel pressure gauge at the shop last week when we did the test run. Going to throw it on and make sure the engine wasn't starving for fuel. If I have good pressure, the ECM goes back. Hope they can turn it around in ...

Re: And The Journey Begins

So, first day on the water went well. Need more pitch for sure. Engine spins up real fast. Think the ECM is going to need more calibration. AFRs were a bit high, although the gauge was all over the place. I'll check the spark plugs and see how they look. If they look good, I'll re-calibrate the wide...
