Re: Cadillac 500 - HOLY GRAIL

Mr Branch is located in Brooksville, Florida
South of SR50 2 miles, keep in mind he is an engine builder and parts supplier not a mechanic.
That said he is a great resource for anything Cadillac

Re: Maintaining Bolt Torque

It looks as if your already running a poly nut on there. Were the poly nuts new or did they already have use on them? I find after use they won’t hold as well FYI. Tricks we have used on difficult applications have been to use a commercial thread lock like LocTite. The Red #271 is a permanent thread...

Re: BBC - Oil Cooler Location

I have cracked 2 oil pick up tubes over my years FYI

Maybe plug off the cooler and see if it it still occurs?

Curious as to WHY you added the cooler to begin with ?

What was your oil temp vs engine temp ?

Re: How much power to use superwide blades?

If your looking for push they are in the sweet spot at slightly over 2 and do great to about 2 3/4 mark. That is judged off the inboard hub seam.

The old saying was they are a “power sponge” after 3

I run 4 pitched at 2 1/2 they have great push

AMMUNITION SHORTAGES

Just a heads up to the Patriots and outdoors-man on here that we should expect the ammunition shortages to be continuing. It appears there is a perfect storm brewing to cause major shortages. If you hunt and need ammo GET IT NOW! The manufacturers are in a position where they are having to decide th...

Re: Is this from detonation?

They are known for having defects. Several years ago I put a post outlining the issue. If a customer opts to use one on a Branch engine before it gets used Mr Branch totally disassembles it. Usually they require the pins to be spot welded. We found this out through R&D on one of my engines in the fi...

Sig Sauer Class Action - P320

If you own an (pre-August 2017) early Sig P320 your pistol may be on a recall (voluntary upgrade) and possibly you are eligible for the class action benefit. Good defensive pistol just a glitch they resolved post production that should have been caught in development. Then Sig danced a bit before ma...

Re: Building a new 500 caddy for a 14 ft Viking Need help with top end valve train

Charles I chewed on this for a few days but feel it is worth saying. With Cadillac your gonna find two types of users. Those who have one that rarely needs anything but an oil change and those who have gone from problem to problem and then there is OneEye who went LS.....lol. In an airboat specific ...

S&W Shield EZ .380 caliber

On the range we had a few students bring the S&W 380 EZ pistol for class. This is the Shield EZ model which is designed to require less strength to cycle the slide and load the pistol. It is a great option for older shooters or the ladies who just can't muster the hand strength to work the action. D...

Re: Stock 6.0ls

Stock, is a fool’s errand. The LS platform isn’t able to sustain the thrust pressure from prop force. You are going to destroy your 6.0L especially if this is a engine you are planning to run later with a gear box. Dave (Waterthunder) had a DD LS some years back he had to develop a proprietary thru...

Re: 6.2 ls engine options

That'll be pretty heavy boat. Any chance you could do with less length or shorter sides? If not, you're going to want more HP. Actually, it's the torque rating you want to be checking. You should really give some thought to BBC crate engines. For your current budget you could get a ZZ502. Out of th...
