Re: Lake Jessup airboat crash?

I have a new Lenco Trim Tab kit still in the box. It isn't doing me any good sitting up here, where/who can I send it to so it can fetch some cash for a good cause?

Re: The Best Full roller cam 383

I had that 288-10 grind in my last 388. It was bad ass until the mechanical fuel pump slowly ate it. I would definitely recommend it with a 190cc or smaller runner,>10:1, and larger dual plane...what am I missing?

you can get almost any grind you want from howard cams also. Made in the USA.

sbc engine cowl

Anyone know a reasonable place to get a cowl for my sbc? I plan on keeping it out in the elements this summer and would like to keep the rain out of her. Something that covers my breathers also would be the best.

Re: 1969 472 caddy

So pound for pound a stock 1969 caddy 472 wont perform as well as a stock 454 behind a 2.09 stinger? I just wish the 472 would be worth the effort, normal is boring.

Re: 1969 472 caddy

Now the price has went down to $350 with a tranny. I was just curious how they hold up on a 2.09 stinger. I hardly rev my 406 sbc over 4500 rpm. just thought it might be kinda cool to run a caddy at low RPMs... but if it lacks the HP I might be stepping down?

1969 472 caddy

Is this a decent year for a caddy motor on an airboat?
I have an opportunity to pick one up with low miles and a good tranny for under 500 bucks.

Unfortunately not many airboaters in my neighborhood, just a bunch of hoverheads. It is comical to pull my ride onto the beach and hear the full monty on how I should have built the boat.

Re: best automotive set up??

be vigilant on finding a good gear reduction/prop at a decent price. If you can fall into a mid level setup such as a stinger drive and a 2bld "R" sensenich prop the rest of your budget can be determined from there. I have ran this setup with a 355,383, and now a 406. The 406 exceeds my expectations...

Re: Camshaft reference number help

bummer. figured maybe someone on here had an idea what this stick was capable of. Due to time restraints it will have to be used regardless. I know it thumps pretty good but it would have been nice to know what the hell it is.

That makes two Lunati cams we have that cant be referenced.
Thanks

Re: SB400 Ponies

most stroker kits will require an aftermarket block. Eagle flat top rotating assemblies are cheap and dependable. They already include the 5.7 rod like fish is talkin about.
