Re: Kubota Diesel Mini Airboat - Will it work? - What Prop?

waikiki sneaky welcome to SA! All of us airboaters battle the same weight to horsepower ratio so we can run the green grass, beat the black mud monster or just cruising the waterways! Here are a few examples of similar weight aircraft engines. Good luck with you build! :salute: O-200 100hp 190lbs D1...

Re: Electric Fuel Pump vs hand primer bulb.

I had a primer bulb on my AV540, squeezed it twice before first start of the day, replaced it once but never had any issues, never ran an electric fuel pump.

Re: Gso 480 operating temp

So with the watching the head temp do you guys have a temp guage on the heads some how to watch while running? Only temp guage I have right now is on my oil. This is my first boat and have only had it out 6 or 7 times. Typically only turning 2000 to 2400 rpm mostly on the water. Thanks for all the ...

Left hand
Smuggler is correct left hand! If you add a gearbox it becomes right hand.

Don't forget with a DD engine to monitor thrust bearing wear and crankshaft end play!

Swamp has a home-brew oil concoction that may help extend bearing/wear life!

Re: BBC - Oil Cooler Location

So to be clear you did not have these symptoms before adding the oil cooler and adding the extra 2-3 quarts of oil to the system? Here are a few posts from a racing forum on overfilling the engine with oil. "If the oil level is too high, it contacts moving parts in such a manner as air is mixed into...

Re: 46 years ago...

Rick I plan to have a larger shroud built for my AV540 once I get it back together. I am going from carb to fuel injection so hopefully this will help with cylinder head temps like slidin gator has referenced in his threads.
