Re: Running Green Sticky Grass - Need Advice

I had 68inch cypress on my Pe 90 set at 2850 on the trailer. best setting i put it on. when i first put it on i was at the third tick mark and spinning 2500 was a great cruise setting but couldn't push my way out of a paper bag.

Re: New Scam

I had the exact same thing when i posted my four wheeler last week. Oh FYI I'm selling my honda rancher 420. when they email me asking about the"item" you know its BS. craigslist is good sometimes but easy for people to try to scam you.

Re: "Thank You" to Innovative Powder Coating

He did my cage and seat stand a few months back. couldn't believe how well it came out. i had just done a bunch of brazing and missed some spots, and he touched up a few spots for me while he was doing another cage. Ill be bringing all my parts to my next boat to him for sure.

Re: Holly carb Issues Need Help!!!!!

If your running Holley carb and are around the south Florida area, call Ed mac 954 881-5249. All he does is carbs especially Holley. He is the carb guru. He rebuilt my brand new Holley that I had pulled straight out of the box and bolted on. After he got ahold of it. It ran like a different boat.
