Re: TURNS LEFT NOT RIGHT

Are you talking about a loss of turning ability in a low to medium power application while the hull is not on plane and when exposed to a wind. If so it's fairly common to see the boat respond strong in one direction and weak in another based on prop rotation. When your trying to power out to the we...

Re: Lucas Oil Stabilazer

So years back our lost buddy "CROW" was balls deep into oil research. He had a company blending him custom oil for every vehicle in his inventory from race cars to the airboat. He passed along that one of the functions of traditional Lucas Oil Stabilizer is that it serves as an "oil tactifier." As s...

Re: Lucas Oil Stabilazer

The Redline Heavy Shockproof is some serious gear lubricant.

It is a synthetic that provides a film strength like a 75w250 so it cushions the gear surfaces.

Look into it, it is a creamy red. https://www.redlineoil.com/heavy-shockproof

Re: Lucas Oil Stabilazer

I ran a late model wide gear Rotator and utilized RedLine HD Shockproof (red) gear oil with which I blended in about 20% Lucas Oil Stabilizer and an ounce of CompCam #159.

My drive was fairly quiet and at snug as new after about 200 hours bolted to a 542 inch Cadillac. I regret selling it !

Re: 6.0l LS2 rebuild looking for more power

The amount of dollars that you would spend to try to accomplish a sizable gain at the prop in a naturally aspirated application is a costly project. Even with far larger displacement platforms such as the BBC or Cadillac to see a sizable gain in pitch or a few hundred rpm at the output shaft of the ...

It is very common for a judge to listen to both parties arguments and then spend time doing research prior to making a ruling.

I would expect you get news in a few weeks as this case has statewide significance.

Re: Does the dark side really have cookies????

A new drive is $3700 so that leaves you $4,000

I would be looking in the budget LS direction. Low mile 5.3 take out will probably be the easiest to find. OneEyeGator has posted some info in builds he has done. Quite a few other guys as well as numerous Technical articles.

Re: Going back to water walker. Falcons

I have heard the JW and JX require pitch to perform at their best. Try pitching them harder if your engine has the power to spin them. Give up 200-300 hundred rpm in testing to see if you gain push if you have to. I would give Darrin at Sensenich a call on Monday and discuss it with him. When we tes...

Re: GUN RACKS

Hammant has a metal frame that works in concert with the Kolpin case. I have seen Tony480 endorse it and it gives you the option to have an open poly scabbard or put the top on and waterproof it.

Re: Seat setup

If your going to ride alone often then the front seat steer puts weight forward to make for a better balance point.

As you decide your choice if your going to ride kids and drunks then I STRONGLY suggest a triple seat or double with a low jump set forward with rear steer so you can watch your guests.
