Re: What MOTOR and HULL do I have?

That is a 320 short stud case with angle valve 480cyls. No backing plate on the cylinders with the acorn nuts means it has short studs which were on some of the 150hp 320s. Basically 160-170hp

Re: lycoming 540 airtime vs runout value

That is a tricky question to answer. Yes it possibly could be worth more than a standard fresh airboat build, but possibly not. First question is why was it removed from air service? Are the 745hrs TTSN "total time since new" or is it 745hrs SMOH "since major overhaul" these two different hour ratin...

Re: 3A-3B closed ?

Hey Scotty I copied that off off Facebook. I got a call earlier stating that it was closed and then seeing that letter for sure confirms it. We were headed down Friday morning. This water level game they play is getting old

Re: What's The Story With This Engine

Not totally sure what they would be naturally aspirated but It would be somewhere in the 300-310 range depending on what pistons. They are cool engines and if you wanted to get creative you could put a roots style blower on them and a big Holley. Parts are available and plentiful if you know where t...

Re: best location for oil Pressure line on a 0540

If you are standing looking at the mag end of the engine, over on the right hand side of the accessory housing is a 1/8" pipe thread port that could be plugged off. Remove and pull pressure from there.

Re: Looking for NOS install advice

As long as you don't go lean you are fine with a small shot as long as that engine is not worn slap out. Here is a system I did on a 200 a few years back, engine is still running strong today.

Re: Sacrilege?

Greg, don't put an LS on that boat, couple of reasons why as follows.....first off, I would rather have a sister in a ***** house than have a car motor on an original Thurman. Second......It is gonna be a big gamble on how well it will run, 12' boat and the length of that motor and gear box is going...

Re: starter getting real hot and wont crank boat

I guarantee that's where the issue is. Scrape all of that paint of the backside of the bracket and the paint of the block and re bolt it on. It is searching for a ground

Re: starter getting real hot and wont crank boat

Man that should be more than adequate. If you have enough wire reverse how you have it grounded. Go direct to the starter bolt with the 1ga and back to the gear nose with the 6ga. It is possible it is searching for a ground and frying it. Your starter bracket isn't powder coated is it??

Re: starter getting real hot and wont crank boat

Man you 100% have it wired correctly. Is Your jumper ground the same size as the main ground going to the gear nose?

Re: starter getting real hot and wont crank boat

So you have a stand alone starter solenoid and not just using a trigger wire to engage the starter? If I am understating that correctly. If so then do away with the solenoid completely and run your main starter power wire directly to positive side of the battery switch or positive terminal of the ba...
