Re: Lycoming O/360 losing oil pressure under load

Ok guys. I’ve had a bit of time to do some tinkering on my O-360 yesterday. Did an oil change and inspection. Found that my pickup screen had partially collapsed. Kinda makes sense now, with the low over all pressure and drop while under load. As the boat built rpms, the oil pump was likely getting ...

Re: Lycoming O/360 losing oil pressure under load

Thanks for the replies guys!! Im going to grab some aeroshell and do an oil change. That way I can check both the main oil screen and the pickup screen in the pan. I’m also going to check the oil temp pressure valve for debris. This motor doesn’t have an automotive type oil filter. If I find any deb...

Lycoming O/360 losing oil pressure under load

Hello everyone. I took my little Lycoming 360 boat out yesterday and noticed a condition I haven’t encountered previously. I ran across lake Washington it was a bit choppy and everything was fine. Motor had good oil pressure. But once I throttled down before the dam crossing and throttled back up I ...

Re: Breather vent tube

Have you done a compression check and leakdown check? Could it be some blow by or excess case pressure from a valve seat or ring? Would also help to have a lil more info. As to what motor you’re running and mods or setup.

Re: Why no Panther boats

That’s definitely steep! You could buy a pretty nice turnkey boat for that price! I would’ve paid for it in my credit card and disputed the overall charge. Taken them to court to justify the billing and prices!! I know the local shops here in town can be expensive because they have to charge for hou...

Re: Satellite Beach

The Indian river isn’t airboat friendly around that area. It’s deep and gets choppy. And the folks living along the banks don’t like the noise. But there are tons of other options in the St. John’s, not far from where you’re staying. One option is lake Washington Park, which is about 5 to 6 miles fr...

Re: throttle cable and assembly for LS

What throttle body are you using? If it’s not drive by wire. Should be able to use a standard auto type cable, as long as it’s long enough. And a standard pedal assembly sold by most airboat companies. I know around here Hamant and diamondback carry pedal assemblies and cable systems that work perfe...

Re: Recent boat build

Thank you very much! I’ve been able to put a some run time into it and it’s had its share of hiccups! Already had a brand new starter fail and leave me stuck in the swamp. Also lost my fuel cap coming down an embankment and lost a bunch of fuel too. Didn’t make it home that day after running out acr...

Recent boat build

Earlier this year I decided I wanted to get away from a big fiberglass boat. I wanted something aluminum, lightweight, and with good reliable power. So I started researching online and closely inspecting boats at the ramp whenever I took my boat out. I asked questions with a hunger for knowledge abo...
