Hopefully I will get it located and on the way. Thanks, Robo. I'm looking forward to some time in the flats fishing. Too bad it's impossible t...

Re: Need 500 piston

:angry5: well, I was gonna try to load a couple pics, but my laptop will no longer allow me to get on SA for some reason. My point...I should be fully honest about the whole financial situation. Lol After the engine failure, a friend ran across a deal I couldn't pass up on a 19 ft center console fis...

Re: Need 500 piston

I hear ya, boys! I'm doing my best. I hope I can make it this year. Losing that piston is putting a damper on funds. Don't worry, I will let everyone know when I can make it and we will do it up even better next time!

Re: Need 500 piston

Thanks a lot, Deano! I will certainly check them out. I'm so ready to get this thing redone and back on the water. Been too long without my ride.

Need 500 piston

Anybody have or know where I can get a stock 10.5/1 "peanut" piston or even a whole set without buying a whole parts engine?? Broke a ring land on a piston and I can't seem to locate one. Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks!

Re: gotta rebuild

I will have to look back at it, flcracker. I am not positive of the cylinder # but it is the front, driver's side cylinder #2 maybe??

Re: gotta rebuild

That is certainly something to consider. But does getting "in line" require any sort of down payment, or does he sell that many engines that he is unconcerned about getting it sold??

Re: gotta rebuild

Lol I hear ya! Right now, I just don't know what to do. I was all set to save up and buy a brand new hull. Now I have to save up to have a ride at all. Lol I'm coming down to Miami on the 23rd to visit a lady and spend the week on Islamorada. After that, I will see where I can cut corners to save mo...

Re: gotta rebuild

If I had any hope of winning, swamp, I would. I'd be better off saying I'm playing the lottery and putting that money away to buy an engine. Lol Something I forgot to mention...my boat is set up so I can do a gear box simply by sliding the rigging forward and drilling new bolt holes. Only the cage w...

Re: gotta rebuild

Deano, I never had the engine dino's but we rebuilt it with all new bearings, rings, 120 RV cam, beefed up lifter springs, new lifters, timing chain and gears. And just recently added a aluminum intake and factory quadrajet

Re: gotta rebuild

I hear ya, Deano! And that does sound good. I have read all the posts on here and certainly OneEyedGator's If it is possible to get a relatively strong ls engine and gearbox for that price, I would certainly be interested, though, as I said, it will take a few months to come up with even 5k

Re: gotta rebuild

That is a good plan, Swamp. However, I will need to put together a substantial amount of money before doing anything major at this point. lol At present, I can come up with about $200 unspoken for.

Re: gotta rebuild

That may be what I do as well. Yes, it will take longer to get it done? But I've always wanted a sled. I'd like to find I nice 12' sled relatively cheap and play on it for a while

Lol. I know what I WANT. I just can't afford it. Lol I want a 14 ft alum with grass rake, lighter rigging, and a gear box engine. Swamp, I will definitely take you up on that! I'd like to finally meet you in person and I do plan to visit mr Branch's business one of these days. One eyed gator...that ...

Re: gotta rebuild

Swamp, You're saying if they provide the engine it's 7700? That is not bad at all. I will definitely call and talk to him, though I would like to know if it would make a difference if I provided the engine. I already have a brand new 74" Sensenich Q ready to go on it, so DD I'm ahead of the game a b...

Re: gotta rebuild

It's definitely a lot to think about. I will have to do my research. To be honest, I am not fond of having an engine that has to have a computer. I can't work on them, and I have found my current engine rained on more times than I'd care to admit to. If it is not terribly expensive to do so, I would...

Re: gotta rebuild

No, I don't currently have a gear box, but I was planning to eventually buy one. I'm certainly down for a while, so I'm pretty liquid in my course of action. I have a friend here who is using CAD to build a high HP 500 Caddy and he said it was going to cost 10k for the build with him providing the e...

Re: gotta rebuild

Thanks for the input, Deano. I happen to agree to be honest. I would much rather be able to drive it down and talk face to face with someone and be clear on what I'm getting. And I'll be honest, the last couple times I've dealt with CAD I received the wrong parts. I will look into getting in touch w...
