Re: I'm Building 2 Stossel Boats with High Torque Motors

I had to rebuild the cage on my latest boat after I stuck a frog gig in the prop. (I also had to get a new frog gig) The cage was DOM so I thats what I put back. It was the first time I used it and I was impressed. It welded easier and worked the same as conduit and was lighter in the end. I was at ...

Re: Headlamp issues

My lights all use a 2 wire extension cord maybe 14 but probably 16 gauge. Use a regular house hold 29 amp receptical. I have used all sorts of lights and always came back to 4509 for the same reason that it throws farther. Right now I am using a 4509 LED replacement and I like it. It throws light al...

Re: Leak stop?

Rear seal isn't bad to change. Maybe 20 dollars for the seal
If you included your location in your profile you might find someone close to you that would give you a hand.

Re: Boycott Levi's, Burn them

There are fewer Levis in my drawers largely because of price, I always wore Levis because of fit. over the years price got too high. I am not going to go out and destroy what I have with fire or guns, but the washing machine and life are taking care of it. I now end up at Kohls and have two pairs of...

You can also have those cylinders drilled for a second plug. If you filled out what location you live in someone might have been able to help you.

Re: 290 GPU generator. or alternator. what to use?

Original is cool but a generator has to run faster to charge and doesn't have as much capacity to charge. You also have a voltage regulated and related wiring to contend with. If your going to be frogging this boat and your using something other than a led headlight you may not be able to keep batte...

Re: Mack's ride date change!!!********

Don't think I can drink enough beer to do karaoke. Live bands make it too hard to socialize. They think they have to turn the volume up to max. Personally I enjoy the company of others and in a quieter setting.

Re: 0320 blew crank seal

Spring has to be removed and installed on shaft before you install spring. No need to boil it will go over without it. Was told the are manufactured from lady parts. Its the only other thing that can stretch that far without breaking. Try tube, there may be something there.

Re: 0320 blew crank seal

I prefer solid seal. Split seal is aircraft quality but still prefer solid. They male a tool to stretch it over flange and it makes it a lot easier but it can be done without it. Install with a product called the right stuff. You can get it at NAPA.

Re: Lycoming vs. Continental

It's cheaper to build a Lycoming than a Continental. Its also easier to seal them up and not leak oil. I am running a Continental and love the way the motor sounds and pushes. And Deric Acker (not sure about spelling) won with a Continental I think it was 3 years ago. And Don Davis could make one co...

Re: Carb rebuild ????

I have been told to put chrome cylinders together dry. They will break in quicker. Also first run, run it hard and when you shut it down, don't recrank until completely cooled down.
