Re: 350 DD boat

Yes mako makes a nice all stainless PTO style cable with 8" of throw. I ordered one from them I showed up when they said I would. Also good customer services I called and asked the same question many others do and they were very helpful.

Re: 350 DD boat

Yes.For a throttle cable you shouldn't need more then 3-5 inches. Midwest Control products sells an All Stainless Quick disconnect ball joint.

Re: 350 DD boat

If you use teleflex cable the make 2 types related to the bending radius of the cable. Make sure you get the correct one for your application.

Re: 350dd 2 or 3 blade

My H blades pushed best at 2950 but would make your ears bleed. I would mess with the pitch a little to find the sweet spot for you setup. I spent a day on the lake adjusting the pitch a little at a time to find where mine performed the best.

What pitch make are you on to spin it 2800

Re: LS water neck

I got 2 scrap piece of stainless 3" of 1.75 and 3" of 1.5 and welded them together to make a reducer. Napa also has a 1.75 to 1.5 radiator hose.

Or have Cary Eide build you a radiator to your spec.

The gearbox, motor and prop need to all work together to achieve your goal. I personally run a shorter prop and was running a 2.68 recen...

Re: 350dd 2 or 3 blade

In a 2 blade a 68",70 or 72" would work. I ran a 72lxl38 wide blade on my .020 over caddy 472. Wide 2 blade will give you push across the rpm range where a narrow 3 blade will have good snap and have a narrow rpm range more like an old 2 stroke motorcylce. I also ran a 72" 3 blade H on that caddy mo...

Re: Poly for a better price.

Someone on hear a while back mentioned they used brass nylock nuts to prevent galling. Haven't tried it myself but this is my 3rd year of fishing with my poly and it will have to be changed this summer.

Re: 15x7 engine choice

With a 7' wide hull you don't have a lot of flat planning bottom and add to that the weight of BBC. Gaining 25-50 is great but losing weight would be better. BBC with iron heads is around 700lbs or more, aluminum ls 425lbs. Dropping 250lbs off the back of an airboat is huge specially with a narrow r...
