    0-540 fuel injection intake

    I did. That particular engine actually liked the carb much better than the servo. Of course had to change fuel pumps, as well.

    Looks like an upside-down 0-540. Lol.

    Continental noise

    That's some serious scoring on the side of that piston.

    0540 exhaust....helicoil

    Thank you Slidin Gator. Yes, cylinder is mounted, so will just have to use my expansive list of cuss words. I will say, I have invented a few new ones while working on this boat, as none of the ones I knew previously were strong enough.

    0540 exhaust....helicoil

    I run headers straight to flexexhaust pipe, and have one exhaust bolt that keeps falling out. Tried loctite, but no use. Guess I should helicoil it. Would rather not have to do the other 11, but is there any reason why it would be prudent?

    Marvell ma 4-5 carb core.

    I guess I will first have to see /ask what qualifies as a "core". Thank you for the examples!

    Marvell ma 4-5 carb core.

    Long story short, I converted my AV 0-540 from injection to carb last year. A friend had a fresh re-built Marvell ma 4-5, and gave it to me to try. I need to replace that for him, but everywhere I look, they want a core deposit. I don't have a core, and am having no luck finding one, locally...

    I would think maybe a prop manufacturer could answer that.

    Considering my first airboat - some basic questions to get started

    The above is absolute truth. Every time I turn around, another "thing" needs attention.
