Re: Question about rigging

I have seen some whee they added 2 New stringers to accommodate the rigging that didn’t fit.

I’m sure if you do as good of a job adding the stringers as the builder did originally, the only issue would be the additional weight.

If not.... :bom:

Re: Overheating and detonation

What do the plugs look like?

A clear pic of them organized by cylinder may help.

Numerous times I have seen 1 (or more) cylinder not fire which made the other cylinders work harder, get hot and detonate badly under a load.

No pics.

He said his dad (who worked in a machine shop) made it. He then showed me how it worked. I am still impressed.

Re: Best Compound Leverage Snips for cutting conduit?

Coolest thing I have seen to notch conduit was a press. It looked one of those beer can presses people use to smash aluminum cans to recycle. Only it had a sharpened solid steel concave tooth. He just marked the pipe, slid it in there and pulled the lever.... instant notched conduit of any size. Wis...

Re: no start when cold

Teds info: boat runs great when it’s warm. Won’t start below 40°. Had the same problem before and replaced accelerator pump. The following winter=same problem. Question: Did the New accelerator pump actually fix the problem or did it just warm up and start working again unrelated to the repair? I do...

The question is not wether or not it is avail. The question is how much does stainless if the same STRENGTH weigh.

Re: Picture request - game transport

Ya gotta be careful not to throw aluminum cans in the boat. They will go through the prop... you don’t have to worry about a dead deer going through the prop. I mean, Florida deer are small, but not that small!

Re: Narrowing down a boat selection

X2. Sit on your money and watch. You can get a damn fine running AC boat for that price. From what I have seen, most healthy 6cyl AC motors on a reasonably rigged 12’ish boat will run dry for miles without missing a lick. I run a SV 540 on a 12’ aluminum that will take my 220lb and my buddies 220lb ...

Re: Hull weight displacement

There are A LOT of variables that affect a boats ability to run dry. Power, WEIGHT, contour of the hull, rigidity, DRIVER and angle of thrust just to name a few.

I can’t tell you which changes you made that are hurting you the most, but don’t rule anything out....
