Re: Serpentine belt upgrade

Check with the mail order parts guys I believe they have a house brand of serpentine system that should be cheaper than March or Billet Specialties. If you are just running the alt and water pump you can probably just buy new sepentine belt pulleys to put on your accessories and maybe buy a tensione...

Re: Update on our high school airboat project

This has been a great thread to follow. Your guys and gals do excellent work and they are lucky to have an instructor like yourself to see them through this project. Keep the pics and video coming. And to think all I was able to build in shop class was a shoeshine box :D

Re: New cage wire size.

Just one thing to think about with drilling the bars and running the wire through it. If you dont weld up every hole the wire passes through it is a possible place for water to get inside the bars and rust them from the inside out. Just a thought

Re: Geuss I'm just hard headed

Keebo I have been thinking about one of the EFI systems out there for a GSO540 project that I have just started but I know one of the parameters that they use to keep the system properly in tune is water temp and don't think oil temp would be a acceptable substitute for that input but might contact ...

Re: Geuss I'm just hard headed

Ok glad to hear it will work for you, have seen a couple 13 footers with that motor but if set up front and back the back seat rider has the carb between their knees. Not sure how nice that would be if it spit back through the carb :lol:

Re: 0-470 angle valve with injection or carb?

I have a 520 with factory fuel injection on it and works just fine. If yours is all there the Continental fuel injection seems to be fairly dependable. As far as the other things you are needing Innovative in Okeechobee has some nice and well built stuff

Re: Fuel pump died, stuck at the end of malabar

If you are running your boat on regular pump gas its probably the ethanol either eating the diaphrams in the pump up or eating the fuel line and putting junk in the pumps and burning them up

Re: Sanctioned Airboat races

I really wanted to go but work came up and had to do that, but from the sounds of it it was very lightly attended so it would have probably been disappointing. Might have missed it but haven't even noticed any results seems that nobody is really interested even the promoter.
