Well an O-470-15 is older and has a completely different sump. 5/8 was way too small. I am looking for an adapter fitting that will replace my drain plug. I removed the plug and took...

Re: O470-15 question

I want to install an oil temp gauge and tach. What's the best gauge options? I've seen some probes anywhere from 40 to 200 dollars... And where do I install the oil temp probe and tach on the engine? I assume the tach ties into my distributor. I can't find a good maintenance manual for my type of en...

O470-15 question

I have an o470-15. Yesterday everything was running great and then everything shut down immediately. No sputtering, no clanking, just stopped. I was low on fuel, so I thought it was weird it didn't sputter... I put gas in it and now it won't start. The ignition is working and it's getting gas to the...

100LL Avgas

I am new to the airboat world. My airboat has an O-470 continental airplane engine. I always run 100LL Aviation gas. Recently it has become hard to get because of FAA regulations. Is there any easy way to get 100LL or a safe alternative like premium gas with an octane booster?? Every airfield I call...
