Re: Honda CBR 600cc 10x6 Aluminum Airboat Build

I had the same problem when trying to thread stainless rod for my linkage. I used the top jaws out of two of these pipe wrenches and my vise with the vise pressing the “tops” of the jaws pinching the rod. They bit nicely, almost need 4 hands to set it up though.

Re: I really Enjoy

I’ve posted about this before. It’s definitely obnoxious. Especially big weekends with lots of traffic.

Nothing wrong with a regular ol head light. Just turn your head a little and viola, no one is being blinded by it.

Re: Lycoming 320 starting procedure

The O320 H model uses a manual fuel pump that's toward the prop.

Re: North Carolina SAR

Great job. A lot of the same scenes we saw in SE TX last year. We did a lot of the same things... bringing food and water to those that are high and dry but on a temporary island. We brought a bunch of feed to those areas too for the large animals that were stranded.

Great Job!!!

Re: POSSIBLE HURRICANE SEPT 13

I went out to SE Texas last year after Harvey, had no Tasking Number and even shuttled sheriff deputies a few times. I didn’t get paid for anything and wasn’t looking to. I guess maybe that’s where the Tasking Number comes in.

They were taking all the help they could get and were very gracious.

Putnam County already has already got the ball rolling to arm school staff. None will be teachers, they will be trained, as well as have psych studies done. They will conceal carry and absolutely no one will know who the “school marshals” are except the principal.

MAKE SURE TO RUN A CAM ADDITIVE!!! Aeroshell Plus has the additive, that’s what the plus indicates.

Those engines are infamous for cam wear.

Re: Making a comeback

Dude, I’ve started across Hatchineaha during hunting season at 5am and got into white caps and thought to myself “I shouldn’t be out here, but can’t turn around now”. During the winter Hatch can get a nasty wind out of the north that will fool you when leaving the port. I don’t have a wind speed rul...

Re: Oil leaking around exhaust gasket

For fouling.. When the plugs foul, the cylinders turn into an oil pump and will push that oil out through the exhaust, and if the gaskets aren't perfect, it'll make its way out on to the headers.

Re: 0320 oil capacity

It also depends on if your oil cooler is above the motor or below. If its above, then the full oil charge will drain during an oil change and that extra volume the cooler holds will need to be compensated for. My cooler is below my engine with no drain on it (as of now) so that oil stays in the cool...
