Sure you can force induction a mouse but in the end your running the balls off it and durability / longevity will suffer.

Re: Need HELP!!

Is the starter turning it over? If so I would say make sure the mag is not grounded. There is a small wire coming out of the mag or mags if it is grounded that is how you turn them off.

Re: Harmonic Balancers

The fact is that adding the 8.6" overdrive pulley along with tune and LS9 cam will put me around 675 hp. That's worth it in my book. Cheap hp right there. Sent from my SM-G950U using Southern Airboat mobile app powered by Tapatalk 5 to 10 hp that is it. That is what an under drive pulley will ...

Why bother with the under drive pulley it does not give you enough power difference to be worth doing.

Re: MSD box mounting???

I have found out the msd box does not have to be to close to the engine so now more concerned about the coil mount. Anyone mount the coil off the back of the engine?

Re: Pertronix Distributer Problems

The pins break all the time in airboats. I'm new to this stuff so I'm probably wrong lol. I'm not saying it can't be something else but I've seen to many times people just drop the distributor in and never check for clearance. If the gear doesn't have enough clearance it will push down on the oil p...

Re: What prop, reduction to go with

I can tell you that if you go with anything over a 2.5 on a boat as big as yours you will definitely be unhappy. The big boats don't like big ratios. With your HP and torque I would go with a 2.5 ratio. I've played with many ratios on the same hull with 3 different motors. My 383 liked the 2.3 with...

Re: What prop, reduction to go with

If your considering S or SuperWide blades on a 2.68 with 500 to 530 ft lbs torque I'm thinking a 3 blade set up. I am thinking turn it to 5300-5400 2.68 4 blade for that heavy of a boat don't you think the three blade is only going to give snap to the rpm but much less push? Just from what I have s...

Re: Ban Bear Hunts for 10 years!!

I got tired of reading all the bull sh-t above. My take is if you don't like to hunt that's fine. But because you don't hunt don't mean I shouldn't hunt. Hunting is also a form of game management. Most of these people who are anti hunting complain cause they think we can just walk out into the wood...

If you have a gearbox then you can ride pretty much anywhere if not then make sure there is water.
