Re: Painterchic bought an Engine... now I need help!!!!

Hey PC, you've not only built one heck of a nice airboat, you've built a few great friendships along the way. Now that you have a killer boat, ya gotta stick a few frogs and get some frog guts on it...kinda like christening it. If you don't come frogging with us one night, we're gonna have "so...

We met at the first FAA airboat show held in Wildwood many years ago and became fast friends. His boat was also the first boat I ever did any artwork on the rudders too I be...

Put that thing on a full deck. lol. Looks like schmidt did a wonderful job. Enjoy it. I built my engine, not Tom... he just helped me finish up the stuff I couldn't do...

Re: Painterchic bought an Engine... now I need help!!!!

Full tank was because I didn't know how much fuel my tank would actually hold, it's called 40 gallon tank, but my math on it only had it holding 36 gallons at the most. I needed a way to judge how much fuel I would be going through later on when I went to put fuel back in it. Starting with an empty ...

Yes Boys, my boat really has finally hit the water! I know most of you probably thought I gave up on it, but I really hadn't! I've been steadily plugging along in it... Truthfully until Cherpa did the math, I actually thought I was coming up on ten years working on this project, so I'm thrilled to f...

Well it's actually going to have to be a combination of a manufactured throttle cable from the gas pedal to a pivot (for lack of a better way to describe it) somewhere near the center (inside the dry box) and then a straight rod from the pivot to the throttle body... See here's the problem... The ga...

Ok guys, I'm not exactly stuck, but I could use some ideas that I can add to my own for running my throttle cable from the gas pedal to the throttle body on my boat... I've got it all figured out at the gas pedal end, it's the other end where it hooks to the throttle body that I'm needing a few idea...
