Re: 0320 Oil Change

Better to change in warmed up, imo. Gets more of it out, and faster to boot.
You'll need more than warm to burn off the condensation anyway.
Extended running conditions are better suited for that purpose.
Change it, and then go run it like its a new toy. :)

Re: Intake installed backwards

Port matching amounts to an effort to squeeze every little bit of performance out of the engine.
While a little more power is always desirable, that difference will not touch or even dent what you are trying to re-gain.

Re: Intake installed backwards

Now, your lack of power compared to the original build probably much less of a mystery. If the second builder did not replace the pistons with the correct ones to much the new open chamber heads, mystery solved. By design, the compression from the factory is determined by the combination of the head...

Re: Intake installed backwards

As you've stated, it will mount and run with it backwards. The only reason I've known for that to be done deliberately was when fabricating A/C compressor mounts in a car, as the 2115 had none. In that case, there may well have been a spacer used to correct the attitude for the carb. Without restart...

Re: Quick connect for airboat flag

You sir, are a thinker. I agree with your assessment in it's entirety.

Can't tell you how often I see those things where the required remainder of the running lights are missing/inoperable.
If I tried that, I wouldn't make it to the first bend.

Found this mp4 file earlier today but couldn't figure out how to upload it. Took me a while to find it online but here is the link.

This is probably how Kim Jung-Un is feeling about now. I hope JA too, but can't confirm that yet.

Back in the day, it was done as a personal preference for various reasons.

You haven't said (or I didn't see) what exact flavor/configuration your 454 is. There a number of possibilities.

If you are doing the 2.0 --> 2.3 pulley swap, you must have a CH-3 so that part shouldn't be any issue. I recommend you follow Swamphunter's lead and call/talk to Rob @ (866) 679-4200.

Obviously, it could depend on your particular setup and how it was built, but generically I would say yes, if you have the means. I've done it more than once, so I'd expect it's done comparatively routinely that way. If the seat package and the engine stand are all one assembly, you should be able t...

Over the years it seems like 99% of marine wiring problems somehow involve a bad and/or insufficient ground(s).

Given that you don't know what it's really turning, I'd likely wait on that tach. With a healthy 220 and that prop, it certainly should be able to run dry barring something out of the ordinary. As was pointed out 2800 is the number to start with those blades. As far as the jacks go, if it runs OK in...
