Re: First airboat. Have no idea what Ive got myself into....

Since we are going to just see if she starts do you guys think it would be ok to use just a 50w motor oil to see if it turns over. Not running more than a few minutes. Then drain and use the good stuff in the future if it runs. That way I'm not having to go into DFW and buy pricier oil just to see i...

Re: First airboat. Have no idea what Ive got myself into....

Hey fellas. I'm sure I could search around and find it but I'd rather ask you guys. What type of spark plug can I use? Right now they are champion d18y and are not made anymore. Also the previous owner used 30w oil. Is this ok to use or should I use something else. We are planning on seeing if she w...

Re: First airboat. Have no idea what Ive got myself into....

Cactus, I got both of them. They sat right in that spot in the picture since 1999. The homemade one has some weird 2 cylinder. Atleast weird to me. Xenoah model 34bw2. Think its a snowmobile engine??? I don't know. It has a black wooden prop that's rotted to pieces. The green one was built by and st...

Re: First airboat. Have no idea what Ive got myself into....

I would love to see some old pics. Are you guys sure you don't want it? This seems to good to be true....super excited about trading work for the boat....then the guy its stolen from 28 yrs ago gives it to me for free. Don't get crazier than that in my books.

Re: First airboat. Have no idea what Ive got myself into....

Upstack, how can I tell if it's your dads stolen airboat? If it is your more than welcome to come and get it but I'd need some type of proof. I'm guessing he saw something in the pictures that made him think it's his boat since its been sitting since 99. The people I got it from are dang good people...

Re: First airboat. Have no idea what Ive got myself into....

I was wondering what kind of oil goes in it? Would I use aircraft fuel to run it? Just wondering if this is a couple thousand dollar project to make it run or am I looking at something worse. Of course I undestand this is a hobby that requires a good amount of bartering and money.

Re: First airboat. Have no idea what Ive got myself into....

Thanks for the advice. I traded 200 bucks worth of mowing for it so I figured I cant go wrong. Even if I never get it running I'm still excited bout learning about it and tinkering with it.

First airboat. Have no idea what Ive got myself into....

Hello Fellas, I recently traded some yard work for an old airboat. Its been sitting since 1999. The story is back then it started to leak oil so they parked it and found out it was to much money to replace the gaskets. The dad was worried bout breaking down on the river so it sat. A year later the d...
