Ecotec engine

Does anyone have any connections with anyone that works at a junk yard? I'am having no luck locating anyone that can get me a engine and wiring harness. I can find the motors every where but they all are missing parts. I've been using car part.com and have emailed a dozen people only to have heard b...

Re: Who builds fuel tanks for a decent price in central Flor

I've always had mine built by aluimtec in Orlando they do a nice job. I think they are usually around 10 dollars per gallon.

Re: Affliction Airboat Experience

This is crazy I work a full time job and built my whole boat in 6 months and that's a riveted 7075 hull and one of my biggest hold ups was coming up with the money. I can't even began to figure out how a company that makes a living off of building boats could take 15 months and still not be finished...

Find a sheet metal shop by you and have them brake you up what you need.

Re: Airfilter

I used to run a spark arrestor to one day the screen was full of crap so I took it off to clean it. When I did I stuck my finger in the throat of the carb it had sand all in it. That was the last day I ran one. Been running a K&N for well over 5 years never had a problem with getting a ticket for it...

Re: Airfilter

Schmidt Airboats has a Adaptor that bolts to the carb and is made to take a K&N type filter. Some people also run the spark arrestors but they don't filter bugs and sand I would go with the K&N

Re: 520 continental

Have you checked to see if all your cylinders are warm I'm just thinking maybe you have a cylinder down. Even at 2700 rpm's the boat should still be moving on dry ground. But I agree with the post above I would take some pitch out and turn it 2900 rpm's

Re: Oil cooler and lines

This is what I have used on many different boats works well. And most every airboat shop stocks them. https://m.summitracing.com/parts/hda-1260 Also just something to think about if you find a used one you don't know if it's been on a motor that's wore out and has had metal run through it or if it's...

Re: Oil cooler and lines

Any hydraulic shop should be able to make them. Also I believe Napa auto parts can make them but I think they are a little more than most hydraulic shops.

Re: 68 NGQ PITCH & RPMS

Every boat is different. And every person has a different opinion on how they like there boats to run. Best thing you can do is take your torque wrench Out with you and try different RPMs and see where you like it. I have a 74" NGQ on my 540 I turn it 2900 I've tired it from 2700 all the way to 3000...

Is there enough sticking out that you can weld a nut on it? I've had luck doing this before. The heat from welding seems to help free it up.

Re: Buckey needs advice on Bear Hull setup

I agree with the post above in my opinion aircraft boat should be single single inline or a double in the rear and if a double seat in the rear it should be above your cylinders the way it's set up now you aren't getting any air to your prop or more importantly your cylinders. The less crap you hang...
