Night light surveys are done every year. Not sure who told you otherwise. I personally know some of the people that do the night counts.

Re: Tuning Holley 500 for rebuilt gpu 220

I don't see where an aircraft engine has any less of a requirement for an enrichment circuit than any other engine. Furthermore if it fails, you simply have power enrichment circuit delivering fuel all the time, which as i understand it is always safe. To jet a carburetor rich enough that it doesn't...

Re: Suggestions on 0470 R

I would say 6k for a truly airworthy overhaul on a 470 is a very very good deal. Unfortunately, I'm almost certain that's not what you are looking at. There is a lot of variability in value of aircraft engines, and a lot of that is in certification (paper work).

Re: Gator hunting small boat adding floatation foam in hull?

What you need to do is tie 5 or 6 helium balloons to your bow hook. That should give you the added front end buoyancy you're looking for. Wouldn't hurt to couple that with a hole bunch of closed cell floatation foam. I'm talking like 1000 pounds worth. Then that rig of yours will float like a cork! ...

Re: hp and torque

Your torque almost certainly peaks somewhere between 3500 and 4000 rpm. There is a slow decline in torque from 3500-4000 to between 5000 and 5500 with typical small blocks. Then at 5000-5500 the torque falls out exponentially. Along this exponential decay is where maximum horsepower is achieved. Hor...

Re: 220 gpu prop going quiet.

Looks like a short hub to me, which makes a whole lot more sense than your ground power spinning a 72 inch sig pitched like that. I still find it hard to believe you need that much pitch with a 10:1 ground power and a 70 inch sig. But put a medium hub on it and pitch it like that and it'll choke you...

That is copied straight from the fwc web site. The 62 for two tags is what you pay if you already have the trappers license , i.e. additional tags.

Re: Gator tags

Regardless of the phase you received your tag, the first one cost the standard 280 bucks, all subsequent tags purchased by the same hunter cost 62 bucks. If you win multiple tags in phase three, only the first one will cost 280, the remaining tags will cost 62.
