Michelle Booth 561-801-5777 or msgator85@aol.com

She made a couple sets for me. Used sunbrella material. looked great and wasn't sticky to the skin. Also included rainsheilds.

If you want to overpay for some mediocre work that takes forever to get, there is a place in Fla city.

And it would beat the bottom up. You would be putting all the force in a small area.

Re: This year's Mack's fish camp trip...

You can get a ride on any number of boats mine included. As far as the food, we will eat, maybe a everglades thing, frog leg fry, I'm sure we could find a mess of fish. Oscars are great and easy to catch Bass if you want. Oscars are a pain in the ass to clean but table fair is excellent. That and li...

Re: need help 0520 carb set up

Before you guess at how to set it up, contact GMAC 76 here on southern airboat. He set a carburetor for a 0300 up for me to put on a 0470. Fast return at a more than fair price. He was a pleasure to talk to and will steer you in the right direction.

Re: BLEEDING LIFTERS 0470

Turn prop until valve opens,wait a few minutes then turn to top dead center on compression. That will bleed them down.

Re: Also if you could teach me how to NOT double post

I use a apple computer, don't know if that has anything to do with this but for a while if I hit the return key to go back to the menu after posting it would double post. If I returned by going to forum at the top and starting over it wouldn't. It stopped double posting after a update.

Re: 0470 PERFORMANCE HELP??

Start with pistons, 10 to one is going to bump it up and you don't have to split the case. Pacemaker ignition will let you play with some timing issues. Cam if you want to split the case. As old as the 470 - 13 is might be a good id Jurnigan Engines can help you with parts. There is someone on here ...

Re: 0470 PERFORMANCE HELP??

How big is the boat? Why didn't you ask your cert. aircraft mechanic friends? The 470 -13 is a old workhorse. Never thought of it as a hot rod.

Re: Gravity Feed Gas Tank

You can go with a smaller gravity tank, with a larger bottom tank. Simple transfer pump to raise the fuel. Either hand or electric.

I would not like the tank there. Don't think it would get hot, but it would obstruct air to the prop.
