Re: Tach/electrical acting up

I would think your hot wire to the light you took off is grounding against something since when you turn your lights on it blows the fuse but that would depend on whether the light you took off was wired on your switch with other lights. It may not have anything to do with tack problem but I agree w...

Re: HOUSTON TX AREA

Well, I got to Florida to pick my boat up and then found that they had so many flat bottom boats that they were over whelmed with boats now and also had the Navy there and said their problem wasn't rescue but shelter and water for the people. It seems that southern airboat had alot of willing and ab...

I would think that would depend on your ability to do one or the other better. Good welding is the trick, not which one you should use. That's my opinion for whatever its worth

Re: Rudder Coated with Bed Liner

Re: is it ok to use aviation spark plugs O-540

I keep a plug cleaner from harbor freight handy and I use aircraft plugs and pull them and clean them. If you don't use a lean mixture control on aircraft engines they will eventually foul plugs for idling with the mixture tied open puts a lot of fuel in the cylinders that they dont need. I'm going ...

Re: Boat would not start in the cold.

I'm just guessing but your carb is on the bottom like mine. Car carb pumps gas out and it sqirts and drops down into the intake and runs toward the cylinders so the fumes are holding down below the carb and the butterfly is closed enough that there isn't much air to dilute the fumes and what gas wen...

Re: Diesel Contaminated Aviation Fuel

Diesel fuel shouldn't have hurt your engine. Diesel is very lubricating and with the mixture of 100ll should have smoked some while running but should not hurt anything. Your engine got a good lubrication and once the diesel is all out of the tank then it should go back to burning clean again and yo...

I also wanted to say that the people that were out in their boats all day to pass out cards were super nice and surely very dedicated to have done so. I tried not to spray any of them as I left them and hope I didn't.

Re: Boat would not start in the cold.

Aircraft primer kit is small lines from the primer assy that go directly to each cylinder so that when you unlock the hand pump and pump it the gas goes directly into the cylinder. But I agree with GMAC, if that carb is right it should start. I had a similar problem that your having and Greg showed ...
