Under the aircraft section of this forum there are 0470 manuals.

Be sure you understand how the mags work before you mess the the prop by hand.

Re: LSX Based on 6.0

I run a 6.0 with a similar cam (more duration slightly less lift) and a little more compression. I have a 2.68 box and turn a 79.5 3 bld R 5400 set on mark 3. I have never run a whirlwind blade so not sure how they compare. I did set up a stock 6.0 with a 2.55 ratio 80' 3 bld and it runs great as we...

Re: Help Staying on plane. LS2 6.0, rotator 2.37, 80" Sensinich R

Sounds like the round sided airgator hull. Very narrow running bottom but a beast on the hill. I helped a buddy built a similar hull with 5.3 2.55 box and 80" maximus blades. It will run across anything but takes about 3800 or 4000 to be on plane if we are loaded down for fishing the gulf for a...

Re: Engine Coolant Burp

If your motor is using the 4 corner steam vent setup as early stock LS take the hose off the steam vent tube and fill it till you get water out of the tube. If it is blocked un-bolt the plug and do the same thing. I also added a piece SS tune inline with a fitting welded to it. It is the highest poi...

Re: Fuel pressure drop at 180

Maybe PCM runs a different thermostat. I thought stock LSA thermostat was 190 degrees. Codes are for adaptive learn and closed loop. Some systems will not run in closed loop without the motor being at the correct temp. Could be sensor or voltage or ground to sensor. Also if it is running learn it wi...

Re: Scallop question

When I was a kid we used to go out between the islands at cedar key on the lowest tide and walk around the flats in ankle deep water.

But that was over 40 years ago, damn I'm getting old.

I have seen a few out just north of yankeetown but was very murky.

Re: Stainless rigging polishing

I run my boat in the saltwater most of the time. I went with 304 SS and I polish it with a softscrub pad, lol. For the 1st few years I kept it polished both hull and rigging. Not so much now, I send to much time in the salt. I do keep it very clean but the whole polishing thing is way to much work. ...

Re: PROP or ENGINE SHAKE???? above 4,000rpm

Deano, I was the same about the fuel pressure gauge, set it and forget about it. But having it on the motor is being able to better determine the problem on the water before you screw something up. Just like I run an extra manual oil pressure gauge screwed directly into the block, no manual oil line...

Re: PROP or ENGINE SHAKE???? above 4,000rpm

Are the secondary's working properly or fuel pump issue, could be going lean at higher rpm, would get hot as well.

Do you run a fuel pressure gauge?

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...

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

Injectors to match Estimated Hp

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
