JT540 wrote:stock go 435 are great motors they will turn a 74x54 paddle prop in the straight valve version or a 6 blade 78 in warp drive I have also seen them turn 78 and 80 power plus props in the angle valve version. I have 2 of these motors if anybody is looking for them.

Re: Oil Cooler Location - Robbing Thrust??

It's behind your seat so it's really not blocking anything & depending on the motor you may go to a smaller cooler & have a heat issue

Re: True 200 spark plug gapping

Yup, Battery ignition has it's advantages, as it eliminates the low speed operational holdbacks of running a magneto system. Fire Wide Gaps at any rpm. I believe some electronic systems offer adjustable timing, per rpm range. Performance wise that could offer allot of advantage as well. It also off...

Re: Trying to decided on what prop

You can also think about the Excalibur if your scared of the smaller blades. The shank size is bigger than the sabers but smaller than the big blades. They also have a core composite structure. You can spin them on up a little more. Stroked470 just put one on a nasty AV 540...See what he thinks of ...

Re: Trying to decided on what prop

Maybe one of the prop gurus will chime in cause my understanding of the NGQ is that it's much for high rpms....... Which where I make a lot of my power.... Cause when I choked my motor down to 2750 on the trailer it was a dog @ the lake......

Depends on what kind of engine your partial too..... Like me I'm an aircraft man..... Not saying anything bad about car motors but it's just how I was raised!!! But to each their own, iv seen igso motors get just as good of fuel mileage as a stock 540 & other people can say the same!!!
