Re: Suggestions on 0470 R

The big question is who did the work and who stands behind the warranty? Did they do top and bottom or just top end? If it is a reputable company that did the work and you have faith in the warranty, it is a good deal. I spent quite a bit more than that for a beat up hull, an old trailer, rusted ou...

Re: 220 gpu

Used to be known as a poor mans 540.. Meaning that it was a 6 cylinder but 1/4 the price of a 540.. its a good motor for 2 people running dry (some have boats that run 3 people dry) but every boat is set up differently, prop selection, rigging, hull that will make every boat run differently.

Re: Fuel tank vent question

I agree with the full tank theory, but there are no places to get Avgas at 1am when I am headed home... So, I just fill it back up at the first possible chance.. Might be a day or 2, but it beats getting condensation in the tank. Is your boat in the sun? I ask that because if the side of the tank is...

I can count about 10 old timers (and I use that term as loosely as I can because they are a little older than I am) that have run them personally.. And every one of them have said, at different times alone, that the 455 Buick motor was one hell of an airboat motor back in the day.. Now, I say "back ...

Re: 220 gpu mag

Electronic ignition is more for racers.. And I say that cause thay can adjust the spark with computers, for wide open runs.. Its complicated.. But for a ride boat, I would stay with the reliable mag.. I have duel mags cause that's what the plane was running when I got the motor..

Re: Pics of a fold down cage?

I welded a 3 part cage.. On both sides of the cage (on both sides of the gas tank) I made it where you unbolt the sides and the rear of the cage and the top lifts off without having to take off the prop, headers, exhaust, flex pipe, etc..... I can actually take the cage off with the prop spinning.. ...
