Re: Fuel pump stopping - enough already

I called the airport to see if I could get fuel hose from their shop because I figured they don't use junk there and it works. But they were closed so I went to auto parts store they only had junk. Then went to west marine bought the best they had may not be the finest but should do. Pic of what I b...

Re: launching at Lake Washington

There is one down side....

At night fine.... Little before sun down the pucker factor goes way up be ...

Re: Fuel pump stopping - enough already

Ok, now that I figured out how the video works, here is a much better idea of what I saw inside my fuel pump.... I have to admit I was surprised.... FYI - my first pic here with the paper towel was the newer fuel pump... this video was from the original fuel pump I took apart to replace the new one ...

Re: That ain't good - cabbage

This is my first video I'm trying to put here so.... Any way, I had to wait for some bcso guys to move their cars so I didn't sand blast em... I asked nicely and waited about 15 minutes. Finally they moved. Along with the ambulance, fire truck, 6- sheriff cars, 2 sheriff airboats and a FWC airboat a...

Yeah my whole prop would have to come off, be repitched extra. Defiantly nice to have a setup that can just pull prop and put it back that's sweet.

Re: Fuel pump stopping - enough already

I'll buy gold plated if I have to this has to be the cheapest part of the whole boat and it's the only thing I've had problems with I still can't believe fuel hose just doesn't work cause it's cheap. They shouldn't even sell it. Where can I get the best type I need about 8 feet. -- shaking head Sent...

Re: Fuel pump stopping - enough already

So avgas eats regular fuel hose up? Who woulda thunk.... That's why I ask you smart fellas :). I'm going to take a photo of my hose now because if that crap is upstream then it's downstream too. Ack! That's not even funny. It says not for fuel injection system right on the fuel hose (I never actuall...

Fuel pump stopping - enough already

Alright... On my second fuel pump after first one stopped. Then new one stopped and I was way out there. Decided to take it apart that time. Pulled parts out out back together then it worked. I put original fuel pump back in boat because at that point figured I could fix it too if needed. On way out...

Re: Spare Alternator Belt 540

I just bought a good battery and I've been out half dozen times in a row without an alternator without charging the battery and had no issues. I'm not worried about any single trip killing the battery so belts can be fixed at home.

Re: launching at Lake Washington

I believe especially with water low you cross little airboat wooden bridge beside dam it's pretty easy. It is closer than Florence. If water were high there may be way around but I've never been any way other than by the dam myself just takes a minute no problem.

Re: How do you bend the hoop for your cage?

Just a thought outside the box... I brought two 20ft sticks to local airboat shop and dropped them off. Picked up 6hrs later for $30 done.

Re: Lake Washington restrictions are coming!

It matters what, when, where and how you drive. And it is simple... If you choose to live near an airport, a train track, a stadium or the swamp you should expect the same noises that were present there long before you were.... My 2 cents

Re: Lake Washington restrictions are coming!

This thread should be split to avoid mixing issues. 1) what the law is with regards to exhaust on an airboat. 2) airboat noise ordinances increasing in newer populated areas. How an airboat is driven has as much to do with the noise as the airboat itself. If there is going to be a noise ordinance th...

Re: Lake Washington restrictions are coming!

There is so many variables that go into how much noise an airboat makes and then it's subjective based on pitch, time of day etc. I can place my small 11'6 boat next to a 16' boat with a 600hp CM with full factory exhaust out the back of the hull and I think you all been around enough to know which ...
