Re: 0470 top end rebuilt. .....smokes hard when fired up

JT540 what did you find? was it a result of the time between rebuild (maybe moisture caused a problem with the cylinders) or was it a bad or never even done rebuild

fuel supply problem IO520

Just got done re-plumbing the fuel supply lines on my IO-520. Used a Facet cube pump PN40109 and all braided steel lines and AN fittings. Pump runs and primes the engine but once you shut the primer pump off engine starts starving for fuel and will barely run. The pump is supposed to be a free flow ...

Re: 0540 SUPERCHARGER PROP??

I ask that same question and have had some good input from several guys on here and the R seems to get the biggest praise. Most guys that are running the supercharged boats are keeping them in the 14 to 15 foot range and not too heavy

Re: OK, here's the project ....

If you could see your way clear to drop down to a 12 foot hull. I always liked a 0360 lycoming. Either carbed or injected. Plenty of power and reasonable on fuel

Re: Atf hulls

Atf hulls from what I have seen are aluminum hulls that are very similar to what most of the other aluminum hull builders are building. Very nice lines. Not sure what all sizes he builds. They are built by Jerry Bunnell JR. in Cocoa

Re: Lighter Double Seat Shells

I'm sure my double seat shell isn't made out of carbon fiber or andthing special, maybe just a lighter fiberglass lay up but I just checked mine and it weighed in at 17lbs with the cushion on it. Just got mine from ButtRaxx. Real nice shell, good finish.

Re: Lycoming 0540 pacemaker ignition timing

Sounds like you have far greater issues than your Pacwemaker ignition. I would do a cylinder leakage to find out the condition of the engine first. The issue of oil being pushed out the breather is a pretty good sign of engine problems IMHO

Re: getting quieter

Whirlwind Razor blades and Sensenich Sabre blades are both supposed to fit your Warp Drive hub. Don't have any real experience with either but the Whirlwind blades seem to be real popular with the race boats :stirpot:

I remember there used to be a time when we were just concerned about if the boat could run the hill or not now everyone seems to be concerned about wether it will run 100 MPH or not of course back then we were all running wood props on heavy glass boats

Hull trim replacement

Going to be making a small fiberglass repair to a hull and after it is complete and the hull repainted I will need one side of the T-rail on top replaced. Does anyone know of someone in the Orlando or central Florida area who can put T-rail on a glass hull
