Re: Need 500 piston

I will definitely keep my eyes peeled in the future. I resigned myself last week to sending the pistons back and getting the 30 over 472 pistons. It came down to hurry up and get it done. Couldn't keep holding up the machine shop...and, with the funds getting tight, it made more sense financially to...

Re: Need 500 piston

Thanks for the info. I will see how things go. I'm waiting to hear from the guy at the machine shop today to see if ha can locate one. I would prefer to get the crank, but if it can't happen, I can always send the pistons back to Cad Company and swap for the 472 pistons. They said they would only ch...

Re: Need 500 piston

The only problem with that is I already spent over $600 on 30 over 500 pistons, rings, etc. Might as well keep trucking unless the shop or I can't come up with the crank. Lol

Re: Need 500 piston

Well, finally getting some progress made. Anybody else get the feeling life is always trying to take a sh!t on you?? Lol Dropped the engine off at a trusted local machine shop for boring out and rebuild only to find out my engine has a 472 crank in it. Already bought the pistons and all to rebuild a...

Re: Artistic rudder wrap

Typically, you start with an idea, then the person who will be doing the vinyl can computer generate whatever you want and print it out on vinyl. As for price, it can vary. Im sure there are plenty here who can tell you what they paid, but you'll have to call someone who does it to nail down your pr...

Re: Need 500 piston

They only problem with that is availability. You can't find racing fuel just anywhere around here. I think there are some places that sell the prefilled aluminum 1 gal cans of it like you can buy kerosene in, but that's about it within easy driving distance. I definitely try to keep the octane up. I...

Re: Need 500 piston

I'm sure you are correct, brother! There's also a high likelihood that my buddy at Seminole put crap gas in it while it was down there after the trip. In any case, yes! I will continue to use high test NE and add either av gas or racing fuel to it. The other issue it yo get it gassing right when it ...

Re: Need 500 piston

Been off the grid for a bit, but I'm back on the boat. Got a new set of pistons, now I have to finish tearing down the engine and get it bored 30 over. Hopefully I'll be back on the water before the weather gets cold. Lol

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!
