Re: 6.2 LS thermostat

Have you reset it? Once it throws a code on mine if I go to WOT and release fast is resets my MEFI4 and clears the codes will pull it out of limp mode if it was in it as well. On the LSA not sure if it works the same or not

I will get a picture posted of the inside of the cylinder. You can still see cross hatching all the way down the bore and it does not look like broken glass inside

O-470-11B Continental

Work led me to stumble upon a O-470-11B, thought about it for a bit and then went back and bought it. I know it runs as it was just on a boat for all of 2 hrs. I have all of 500 bucks in it so now I need to see if it’s a simple issue or if I got a lemon. Previous owner is a wealthy guy he bought thi...

Re: Airboat Safety Course members needed

Who’s it with? If not USA marine training call Randy and schedule a three day with him. Or if it is load your boat up and come to Levy county and take it in his backyard or jump on up coming class . Most operators courses are for commercial, LE and search and rescue teams and employees.

Re: Looks Like I'ma gonna be a Caddy Guy - Now What?

Water thunder posted a few post a while back with weights. I believe his weigh 430-460 dressed engine, and a touch over 500 with gearbox and headers. I don’t know how to copy a link or I would have attached them for reference. I have not seen a flexpate/ fly wheel come with gearbox. But some dealers...

Re: Looks Like I'ma gonna be a Caddy Guy - Now What?

Plenty of power can be made with that. Mr. Gerald (new old glory) his water thunder is L92 based. I believe if not mistaken it’s the 418ci 550hp package. You are definitely right path. You are petty knowledgeable on here so look up the references to Dave’s build he did for Airboting Magazine I have ...

Re: 6.2 LS thermostat

Water thunder builds all his engines with a 160* and I’ve personally never seen one run over 170* period, there’s a reason Dave builds his to run “cool”, I’d shoot him a note on here or give him a call he’ll give you the reason. I’d rather hear it from a reliable source with 1000’s of builds under h...

Re: Cracked Welds

The 4th and 5th pictures are weld defects, incomplete fusion, to be exact. You can see that the aluminum beneath that weld is untouched. Most of the time aluminum as thin as used in airboats does not require pre-heat under most conditions but obviously not always the case. If you weld it with poly o...

Re: Looks Like I'ma gonna be a Caddy Guy - Now What?

Shit that L92 tuned right will burn far less than the 0540 if you stay outta the pedal. And done right you shouldn’t need to get in it. This all of course takes into consideration all other things are correct, such as prop,reduction, crank angle, etc.

Big block! There are plenty of “ bow fishing” boats that are waaaayy underpowered using 6.2’s both Forced induction and N/A. I know some 16’ boats with high performance 6.2’s and it’s about as big a boat you want to put one on. However depending on the engines there could be a 175+ hp difference in ...

The specs are directly from Dave at water thunder for a L92 418ci. so I trust them to be tried and true.
