Re: E185 conversion

50 more cubes should give a bit more power but not sure how much and if is worth the trouble/cost. maybe a cam swap from a e225 would do the trick

Re: Honda CBR 600cc 10x6 Aluminum Airboat Build

See how it runs but I would be thinking about a belt for the power to the jack shaft. It would be smoother and less maintenance/reliable

Re: Has anyone found a way to grease steering cables?

There is a plastic liner in side the cable which when it wears through balls up and creates a tight spot which only gets worse.
yes you are better going new.

Re: Leave the pcv valve on or take it out pros and cons

make sure your rubber cap on the pvc tube at the base of the carb isn't cracked or rotten. If it leaks your carb will be difficult to tune. I put a 2 in piece 3/8 of rubber airhose with a bolt siliconed in it to replace the rubber cap.

Re: Think I blew it up??

A mirror might help but a walk back on start up on trailer or ? would be better especially in warm weather. I was thinking about a pressure gauge in the cooling system might give indication of the beginning of a leak after you establish a normal operating reading. Just a thought

Re: Think I blew it up??

Had that happen to me and the boat was 2 miles in rough territory. had to pull the heads out there (fiel repair) and got her going and now problems for 10-12 years.
I would hang on to that 434 sbc good chances it will out perform the LSA but not an expert

Re: Holley 750 double pumper jetting

you have to weld the bungs on the end of the headers before the flex pipe. the flex pipe leaks oxygen and will give you false readings. Read the install manual in the Innovate web site I sent you
