Re: Mike Felber

Confession from an aircraft guy... I ran a Caddy off the crank for a few years in the mid 90's. It was amazing what it would do speed wise & running the hill on a 12.5' boat w/double back seat. Mostly ran with my (2) brotherinlaws (396 belt drive & 8 cyl. gtso Continental). I couldn't race w...

Re: Submerged object Lake Hatchineha

Wasn't there a thread on here about hazardous objects where you could post coordinates? Duece Yes, there was a "Navigational Hazard" forum created under the "Airboat Safety" forum. It's still there, but has never really seen much activity: https://southernairboat.com/phpBB3/view...

Oh I have seen more stray barbed wire out there than ever before.

How about stating where you've seen the "stray barbed wire" before somebody gets killed.

Re: Lycoming Motor id

My first boat was an angle valve 170 (o-320 with o-480 jugs). It swung an Air-Props 66x38 stick prop. Can't remember the exact rpms, but 3,000 was always our goal when we ordered a new prop back then and it ran good. Somebody may correct me on this, but if you've got the o-435 jugs, I've heard they'...

Re: Lycoming Motor id

Here's a "Lycoming Cylinder Identification" thread that was posted a few years ago that might help: viewtopic.php?t=58986

I have seen more than one instance where a Lycoming 4 cylinder was not what it was thought to be.

Re: Lycoming Motor id

I put those pictures in your original post.

I think if they were O-480 cylinders, they'd have the "narrow deck" type nut holding them on at the case.

What size prop is that and what's it turn WOT?

Re: Lycoming Motor id

I'm no expert and it's been a long time since I ran a 4 cyl. Lycoming. The 160 (which is an O-320) and O-480 jugs are a match. ⋅ The O-320 is a 4 cyl.; 320 c.i. divided by 4 = 80 c.i. per cylinder. ⋅ The O-480 is a 6 cyl; 480 c.i. divided by 6 = 80 c.i. per cylinder. ...same bore...
