Re: 540 running rough....

I would do a leak down just to cover the basics before doing anything else.

Av gas

I guess I could have waited longer but just filled my tank and drums with 300 gall at 3.00$ a gall. I’m good all summer.

Re: Exhaust System Corrosion

Rub down with fluid film when you take it out. My flex is 5 yr old and sees lots of salt water. Fluid film is real popular for vehicles up north. A gall will last a Long time. https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/FFQCNAS

Re: sensenich 3 blade on a 520

I have the 3 blade on a 300hp 540. I took off a 6 blade warp. The warp had more snap and push, if it wasn’t for the ease of adjusting the 3 blade I might go back to the warp.

Re: Srnenich 72

I’ve had both, I miss my 6 blade warp. It had more push and snap. Also it took a beating. Hard to beat a solid blade vs hollow.

Thanks. I'm in salt water with a 8 ft sea wall. Going to make a 14ft wide solid platform I can walk on and get another boat on.

Re: Anyone run 14mm plugs with adapters in a 0540?

Plugs are so cheap and last till they finally start to rust. What would the advantage be for a peanut plug

Re: AIRBOAT RETRACTABLE BIMINI TOP

I tried a Bimini too, it really intensified the prop noise, enough that I wouldn't even put it up while underway. Went back to an umbrella.
