Re: Replacing fuel lines

There is s saying in my world "everything for a purpose!" Reason I don't run that hose is in the past I have seen the inner liner separate from the hose and collapse.

Re: Replacing fuel lines

What fuel do you run? Avgas eat ethanol fuel lines up. Now I don't run ethanol in my boats at all so auto store fuel line is the best.

Re: The Game Changer

When I ran dd Chevy's the fuel economy was way better than my aircraft. Just none of them could hold up to the play created in the cranks by the prop. IF the longevity is there and the fuel mileage then I see them doing good.

Re: The Game Changer

The fuel economy and longevity. If he has the bearing worked out then it should have better life. My VO540 sucks fuel. I read allot of articles about prop performance. They were always below the speed of sound, So tip speed is critical.

What's worse than weight is sloshing water in a boat. I can run with 4 people the boat prefers 2. My boat was built for h...
