Re: av gas

I get my f.i.t flight school at the melbourne airport. Join Melbourne airport pilots association for a discount. Great service and all are super friendly to deal with.

Fuel inection

Looking for some feedback. Has anyone installed fuel injection on a 470/11 and were there any noticeable results in performance/economy? Is there a complete kit on the market that can be purchased? What else would be required to run e85 fuel?

Re: Check this gator out.......

Yea thats a big f***er. It almost seems to good to be true. Dont golf courses regulate the wildlife living in the ponds. It would seem thats gator is a little large and would be a risk to the business if aomeone got eating retrieving a spiked ball that landed on the lake shore. Just saying.

Re: 0-470 questions/problems/concerns.

Are there any known problems fellow airboaters experience with the continental 220/470 motor. If so what should i expect and or look for before purchase? Is there any additional information/manufacturer service bulletins available via world wide web. All input helps.

Thanks again everyone.

Re: 0-470 questions/problems/concerns.

I agree. I dont see shelling out big money for a wedding. Her cousin shelled out 15k to get married and the ceremony at a damn movie theater. Just saying money can be better used elsewhere. Im still on the fence though about this boat. If everything checks out and the new cylinder fixes it. I dont s...
