Re: Bout to stir the pot

Another thing to consider is How deep is your transom? mine is 11 1/2'' at the center if your new hull is any less than that I would stick with the AC set up.

Re: Oil Cooler on 383 ? losing pressure (

I think the problem is solved, I spoke to a very Knowledgeable Motor Builder on here, He suggested I might be running too much oil, ( wrong dip stick) causing the crank to spin in oil and foaming or throwing it places it shouldn't. So I drained the oil and put 6.5 qts in my 7qt pan to start with. We...

Re: Oil Cooler on 383 ? losing pressure

I thought about a possible cracked pick up tube, but I cant understand why it would work for the first 2-3 hours perfect (with new oil) and then start fluctuating..

Re: Oil Cooler on 383 ? losing pressure

Its a drop down Pan 8 qts to fill it, HV pump , great pressure for 2-3 hours then starts to fluctuate. it will drop to 20 psi when hard on the gas then rise back up when let off.

I did this about 8 months ago.. you can call them to be sure but I remember they want all the receipts you have to build the boat or get as many as you can,(sheet metal, rigging materials,seats,nuts and bolts ,Ect.) the bad part is they want all original receipts, Not copies.. so make your own copie...

Re: 75 south to the swimming hole in the glades??

Sounds easy enough Right?? but be warned, some of the trails pass through slews and it is not always easy to see where the trail begins again.
ride with someone that knows, dont try it alone your first time. JMO.

Re: Glades for Labor Day

Here is a basic Map of 3A might help with the general directions of some camps and tower.
But defiantly ride with other boats if you dont know the area, easy to get lost out there now with the water being high,
the trails mesh together with the slues if you get turned around.
