Re: POSSIBLE HURRICANE SEPT 13

During Harvey last year it was just regular people in their boats picking up people from their flooded homes. I would have done the same after being picked from our house but couldn't get to the airboat. Also, it was unexpected so I think they let anybody help. And people weren't asking permission, ...

Re: Your rights as an airboater

you have to be off water by 7pm that doesn't seem right to me. These people will move next to a gun range and want to shut it down even though the range has been there since the 60s. Good luck to yall. Better get your voice heard.

borrow a carb

Anybody have a 600-750 Holley Double Pumper laying around that I can run on my engine? Need to try a different carb on engine to prove I have a carb issue or not. I will pay shipping and rent for the carb. Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

Re: Fuel Pressure

So I ended up buying a Holley fuel pump to get more gph to fix the fuel pressure problem and received it Tuesday night. I installed it yesterday with the hose fitting snug and of course they leaked. Long story short I tightened the fittings 3 or 4 times trying to get them to stop dripping and the ho...

Re: Fuel Pressure

The lift pump is a 3/8 fitting precision pump. I bypassed the lift pump and went straight to the mechanical pump and had the same results.

Re: Fuel Pressure

Sent email to Holley and this is what they said:

That is normal. When at WOT its using fuel so quickly, that it doesn’t build up a lot of pressure. If the car still runs well at WOT, then I’d say that you don’t have anything to worry about.

Fuel Pressure

I have a sbc 383 with mechanical fuel pump. The fuel pressure at idle bounces between 6-8PSI, when wide open it goes down a little below 2PSI. Is this normal? Or do I need to look for a problem?
Forgot to mention Holley 650 Double Pumper.

Re: Please chime in airboat people

Getting the upper pulley back in is not that bad, it is getting the upper pulley flush is the big deal. At least it was for me. Just had to have patience and once you get the lip to fit it falls right in. Don't know how much heavier the CR is but don't try shortcuts it will just add more time in the...
