Re: Spark plug change on a 502/512

It is in the design of the exhaust header flange especially if its from alumitech. Take headers off and radius around the spark plug area for clearence of the socket (i had to use a plasma cutter to add the clearence and smooth it out with a wheel). Even the smaller NGK sockets are tight. removing t...

Re: Water Walker’s NEW Congo Cargo Airboat

Awesome thread and thanks Waterwalker for pushing the envelope. We utilize some small 12Vdc linear actuators to automate the equipment I design. You may consider some of these as the custom stroke lengths & forces are well within your design constraints. p.s. what is the box in the middle with two t...

Re: Oh what a day

Hope your luck has changed by now. I had a freak issue the other night during a tournament where I always check everything out when I get to my fishing spot. I noticed the engine dieselled a lot more than normal but thought it was due to me racing to get to my hole first. Just before dark, I take a ...

Re: levitator 8.1L 496 engine - truck vs marine

Thanks for the replies guys. I guess I should of been a little more specific. I fully understand the purchase of a used engine and the items to check. I have built several different airboat engines and very familiar with how to setup a BBC for long life on an airboat. My problem is if I spend the mo...

Re: Whirlwind Master Blaster

One thing is bugs. If you run in a lot of bugs, you should wash the bugs off the next day to prevent the acid in them from dulling the finish and wax them twice a year. Strange - I have never had any issues with Whirlwind but my Sensenich prop lost the shiny finish in several months and it did not m...

Re: TQ verses HP

OP are you going to be using the boat when it is cold? I like package #1 but single plane intakes are notoriously cold natured. #2 may be a little more user friendly for that reason. Yes i will be using the boat in cold weather and will definitely be using the dual plane intake with spacers to get ...
