Re: 0470-11?

comanche..sounds about right. Sounds like you need to keep running your 220 jeepinocala. They all leak and burn a little oil. If you arent having problems I would change anything lol. Like I said I wouldnt recommend wasting the money on aircraft cyl on that gpu, but it may be the cheaper route. It s...

Re: 0470-11?

On paper they are pretty much the same, aside from the 470-11 being a true aircraft motor. I have had really good luck with mine. I like it much more than a 220. Power is probably comparable, but the 220's don't cool as well. Like I said, I don't hesitate to point it towards the worst. I am fighting...

Re: 0470-11?

They are supposed to be 213hp at 2600rmp. I have had mine for around 3 or 4 years now. It has been a great engine for me. Its low compression( i think 7-1) so it doesnt give much trouble, but it still has the balls to get you out of trouble. I ran a 74 inch 2 blade q series just under the number 2 s...

Re: blue iron poly

The blue iron is by far the slickest i have ever seen/ran. It is slicker than some slick bottoms!!! Its crazy good. I had it shipped to my work place. Its a little cheaper to ship to a commercial address. Shipping ran around $200.

Re: lazer hulls?

Yeah. The guys at ridge runner are great people but they are a little high. You can get a predator for I believe 2400. I think the bullfrog's were like 2200. Not 100% on either. They may have changed. This was last summer. But from what i have seen all three of them make a very quality boat. I love ...

I gotta 2000 wrangler with the 4.0. It pulls my boat ok. The farthest i have ever pulled it is about an hour and a half or 70 or 80 miles...one way.

Re: wood prop for 160 h2ad

It really depends from prop to prop. anywhere from 66X32 to 68x36 narrow blade should work. You just gotta try em and see.

Re: Plowing problem

When we install poly we leave a little hang over on purpose. It does kinda act as a trim tab and you can shim it as you go an it starts porpusing. Idk about 2 inches but an inch over hang is resonable. Def check your motor angle. Most people that put poly on leave overhang. Unless they already shimm...

Re: 0320 4 blade

I also heard this. I had a 4 blade going on a 0-320 too. I decided to just call warp drive and find out directly from the people that make it. They said that it is a myth and isnt true. As long as its the regular hub there shouldnt be any problems. The only reason there would be a problem is if it w...

IDK about the 2 blade Q being dead on top end, but my dad has a 3 blade 72' Q prop on an angle valve 470 on the 1 and 3/4 mark turning it 2900 on the trailer.
