Re: Need Glen Treadwell's phone number

Correct me if I am wrong but didn't Glen Treadwell retire from Muscle Machine 3 years ago?

Re: Does the dark side really have cookies????

A new drive is $3700 so that leaves you $4,000

I would be looking in the budget LS direction. Low mile 5.3 take out will probably be the easiest to find. OneEyeGator has posted some info in builds he has done. Quite a few other guys as well as numerous Technical articles.

Re: Going back to water walker. Falcons

I have heard the JW and JX require pitch to perform at their best. Try pitching them harder if your engine has the power to spin them. Give up 200-300 hundred rpm in testing to see if you gain push if you have to. I would give Darrin at Sensenich a call on Monday and discuss it with him. When we tes...

Re: who's running Marty Brey hulls

Back in January I was over to visit Mr Bray and the standard hull was selling for $225 a linear foot and the new wide hull was priced at $250 for a gel coat single color. To add side rod boxes was an additional $700 and on average a upgrade custom metal flake finish would add $300 or so to the end c...

Re: Edelbrock E-Street cylinder heads

I checked with Mr. Branch for you and he said that if you have 100% ruled out coil bind or the springs being to heavy that most likely the stud was over or under treated in the hardening process. That said, he commented if you replace it and suffer another valve train failure such as a push rod or c...

Re: GUN RACKS

Hammant has a metal frame that works in concert with the Kolpin case. I have seen Tony480 endorse it and it gives you the option to have an open poly scabbard or put the top on and waterproof it.


One of many options

Re: Seat setup

If your going to ride alone often then the front seat steer puts weight forward to make for a better balance point.

As you decide your choice if your going to ride kids and drunks then I STRONGLY suggest a triple seat or double with a low jump set forward with rear steer so you can watch your guests.

Re: who's running Marty Brey hulls

I run a Bray hull and the boat turns well. We have had it tuned to run on rails and then re-tuned it to be more free where it has a little slide. Mine is the original not the new 8ft wide boat. Marty Bray has the Swamphunter45 seal of approval for building a quality hull and being an honest vendor!

Could you have one of the alternators I was talking about? Mine is the single wire GM version. It is made by some aftermarket company probably foreign built.

Re: 350dd and march underdrive pulleys

Under drive means to slow the rotation of a system. The objective is to "under" low speed the accessories.

That is done to reduce the parasitic drag.

Typically a smaller crank pulley is utilized often in concert with larger accessory pulleys.

Re: 350dd and march underdrive pulleys

An under drive system turns the accessories slower. It does that to reduce parasitic drag and free up power. It's a very small amount on an airboat engine as typically we only run a single belt, alternator and water pump. The concern or thing to watch in initial testing is that an under drive will t...

Re: BMW m57 engine for DD? Diesel.

Are there any surplus 4 or 6 cylinder piston driven aircraft engines that you may be able to obtain or is that an uncommon item.

I think most of us would suggest you use an engine that meets your power need and which you can support with parts and accessories.
