Re: Prop VS Motor: Airgator, LS2 6.0, Sensenich NEED ADVICE

One thing to look at is if you have an LS2 out of a TBSS it should have the 411 injectors which are 36lbs at 58psi good for around 450hp at 80% duty cycle. Also a few GM setups run at 40 psi not 58 and the TBSS had several different injectors depending on the year. Just a few thing I would verify. D...

Re: Prop VS Motor: Airgator, LS2 6.0, Sensenich NEED ADVICE

With a cam and head work, and at around 10.6:1 my ls2 carbed is around 400hp. With a 2.68 and 79.5" 3 bld R set at 2.5 motor turns 5500.

Sounds like something is wrong in your tune.

Tune it self
Fuel Pressure
Injectors to match Estimated Hp
Correct length push rods

Re: Reflecting on Maiden Voyage

A lot of good info
My 2 cent

Be careful with the mag. If you don't now how they work ,learn.

If the mag is not grounded, then it is hot and rotating the prop can have severe consequences.

Re: Air fuel ratio for direct drive

Have you checked the float drop not float level? If the needle and seat are to far down then the float will never drop far enough to allow the correct amount fuel in. I had it happen when my fuel pressure regulator went bad and spiked the pressure to my carb.

Just a possibility

Re: Air fuel ratio for direct drive

Can't you tune it for WOT and use a piece of Wire in the IFR ( old school trick) to lean it out at idle but will be a little fat at cruise. Depending on the metering plate you can also drill and tap IFR and emulsion circuit for 6/32 brass blanks and drill them to the size you need. Just some thoughts

No sir I do not. It was just a thought.

Also the AFR sensors do not like leaded fuel.

Re: What manufacturers are still out there for glass hulls

I would certainly take a look a Woods and Waters (Paul Jackson ) Havik Hull. He build a great light boat. I have also seen that Outlaw is doing vacuum infusion.

Can never go wrong with a Marty Bray or Jimmy White.

Re: Carb question?

What he said^ I have seen all kinds of bad stuff in out of the box carbs. Get the manual and make sure every thing is correctly set-up ie float. Also look up tuning an Edlebrock. It is very basic and easy to tune. I have put 3 of them on buddies airboats (against my recommendation) and all required ...

Re: Cement pool apron

I do concrete and masonry as well but we work in gainesville.

There is a guy named David smith, he is on the facebook SA and I know he does great concrete work.
FYI it is a concrete pool deck. Cement is an ingredient in concrete.

For efi the original computer will work but you need something like HP tuners ( just 1 of several oem tuning softwares) to change the parameters. I helped build a few boats for friends all with junkyard motors. Most have had over 100k on them when pulled. 1st 3 were done with a carb and MSD boxes. 2...

Not an exact comparison but close in Hp/tq. I ran a stock carbed 5.3 with a 2:1 gearbox. Motor was on a 14x7-6 alumitec with SS rigging set-up with 3/8" poly for fishing the gulf. The motor was straight out of a wreck truck with 113K then was on a buddies boat for 2 years before I got it. (so i...

Re: Solid grass rake builder?

Did you try Alumitec? May be Gene Babbet.

I built my own, did a cardboard mock up, cut my pieces then had a buddy weld it for me. Certainly not perfect but it does the good and cost about 300.00.

Re: Jimmy White square nose HELP

When it comes to raising or lowering the bow it is no different than outboard power trim. Raising the rear of the motor raises the bow to a point. Lower the rear of the motor pushes the bow into the water. I would check the bottom of the hull and set motor level then work from there making little ch...

Re: Extremely disappointed in blue poly

10 years sounds good to me for poly, I change mine about 3yrs. Where we fish is a little rough during the winter months.

I have not run the blue iron, but have run black, gray and gatorslide (had some extra material added) none of them have lasted any longer than the other.
