Re: 0540

Depends. If possible post some pictures. I wouldn't be scared to say at least $20,000. 0540s ain't cheap. Could be more or less. Pictures would help.

Re: 220 gpu restart issues

Go with what the people above are saying. I just went through this problem. Starter went out and had to put another on. Grounding was one of the issues. Good preventative measure is too ground the starter too the cage.

Typical. Countries like Saudi Arabia don't have a problem with thieves. They cut your hand off if caught stealing. Therefore it's pretty much nonexistent.

Easy to get yourself killed or maimed if you ain't watching what you doing. Even without mechanical failure.

No, never heard anything from it. I assume it was out of state within 24 hrs. Would've been nice if you had some kind of tracker on it. The newer model trucks are traceable. Used to a long time ago stealing was uncommon. Everybody knew the consequences. Times have changed though. In the long run th...

Re: Narrowing down a boat selection

Been tossing around the idea of buying another airboat or a mud boat. Problem with the mud boat is, I cant get into all of the places to go on the Kissimmee Chain, which is why I am leaning towards an airboat. I'm not looking to run dry all day, but it would be nice to not have to worry about runni...

Re: 0470-13 help

From my experience the grey black smoke would indicate either getting to much fuel or the fuel pressure is off. I don't know if this applies to aircraft engines but the blueish grey smoke would indicate burning oil.

Re: Making a comeback

From my experience it's better to go riding with as little wind as possible.If it's 20-25 mph consistently than it's to windy. You'd be blowing around everywhere plus it makes it harder to keep control.

Re: Ummm Yep WATCH THE NEWS

So from what seeing I take it someone got screwed out of there money or didn't do what they we're payed to do in regards to building an airboat. I just skimmed through some of the posts. If this is the case I would suggest using Poor Boys Performance Airboats in Perry, FL to build you a airboat like...

Re: Brake design ideas?

I've never heard of putting brakes on a airboat. I would strongly advise putting any kind of stopping mechanism on a airboat. If your running an aircraft engine that has a lot of power I'd think it would be extremely dangerous to try and stop it. Or any engine for that matter. It just doesn't sound ...

Re: IO-720 Lycoming Fuel Injection Alternatives

Upside about fuel injection is increased power and fuel economy. Downside is if something goes bad you better have the $ on standby to get it fixed. I like just having the carburetor. Easy to work on.
