Re: Need 500 piston

Did you have no luck with Egge?
What size are you after anyway; Std, +30, or something else?
Could put out some feelers, but don't know exactly what you are after.

Re: Need 500 piston

Thought I had a set, but after going out and looking they end up being the soap dishes, and not the peanuts. A good source I've used over the years is Egge Machine. 866-996-3443 Their part number for the piston you're after is L2367. Never had a problem getting what I needed from them, but those ear...

Re: Carbed 6.0 LS fuel pump

First of all, don't overlook the good advice you have already been given. If your current pump is 14 psi capable and is in fact producing 11-12 psi, replacing that pump first, most likely will not address your problem. You didn't say if you are or are not running a fuel pressure regulator with that ...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

So I can run my prop as deep as 14" down in the boat. Would any of you consider actually doing that? I see in the post above someone was running 12" in the boat IMO, in your specific case the answer would be a definitive NO, I wouldn't do that. As is true in many different cases, more of a good thi...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

. . . i would think you would loose a lot of thrust While it may look that way at a glance, the fact is that the air moves down the blade toward the hub before it proceeds aft to generate the thrust you are looking to generate. Even a lowly Direct Drive that can only turn a 72" prop does not loose ...

Re: Boat run dry better with motor forward or back?

. . . but am wondering if the motor so far forward made the boat run better on dry? Absolutely not. That Branch DD Cam is to be credited for that. . . . but what runs better dry? Motor to the rear or motor farther forward?? Matters not. You are placing your concern on a comparatively irrelevant par...

With no disrespect intended to Courtney or anybody else at CadCo, IMO you would be doing yourself a disservice to use that option rather than Buddy Branch. First, Buddy is local (compared). Second, while CadCo has mucho Caddy experience, they are not experienced airboat tuners. Your picture of the b...

Re: Apache hull

Conventional wisdom (and the Fla law mandate) says that it should be on the outside of the transom, on the
starboard side and near the top. If you can't/don't find it there, maybe the hull was cut down and it's now MIA.

It is likely that case number is a casting number rather than a serial or part number, so may be of little use.

Initial reaction is to say "Make sure his life insurance is all paid up." Even nine HP w/prop is enough to kill you if it hits you in the back of the head.

500lbft/ 400hp turns way way less prop and makes way less thrust than 400lbft/500hp Ultimately, this statement is a demonstrably true fact without a doubt, (provided that the definition of "way way less prop" is admittedly a subjective observation).

If you don't find something more accessible and/or obvious, I would suspect your flexplate is cracked/cracking. Exactly the symptom(s) you might expect to result from such an issue. Bearings in the drive going bad could possibly lead to similar symptoms. It is worthy to note running a bad flexplate ...
