Re: Beware of ATF Airboats

I have never seen anything bad on this guy or his company are you sure your not just being unreasonable? If you plan to spend a ton of money on an airboat why not just go to a large dealer where you can pester them as needed or felt like needed? Read below like I said nothing but good stuff is all I...

Re: Dialing in new boat..

I had a three blade prop on my boat I went to a 4 blade and the difference in push is day and night it pushes harder and cruises effortlessly so I guess it is kind of like putting mud tires on your truck verse regular tires you gain more traction. I will say right at the boat ramp before even gettin...

Re: Dialing in new boat..

I think you should be running a 2.55 gearbox or higher. I have no idea of that prop so do the right thing and call Sensenich and ask Darrin.

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.

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...
