"will run the hill fully loaded with pixie dust"

Must have been a very specific mission they wanted this rig for.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Thanks Rick. Got the metal work 99% done. Blew it apart yesterday and finished welded everything but the cage. I think I’m going to add some temp bracing to try to keep the cage straight while I weld it out. Or just stick it back on the hull and climb on it like a spider monkey. https://i.imgur.com/...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Made a box for my air filter to protect it from rain and UV. It will be open on the bottom.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

I know it doesn’t look that stout but it’s pretty tough. No doubt more bracing would make it tougher. My Robicheaux is braced this way and it’s a commercial hull.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

You got it backwards. I lie to her and tell here they are absolutely necessary.....can’t possibly do it without them. I’m telling you the truth. Like most of us I will walk backwards uphill in the snow telling a lie the whole damn way if it helps me buy more tools :D

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

When I was saying the 3/8 or 1/2 might not be strong enough what I was really thinking about was the bending moment where it would be bolted to a tab. 3/8 stainless bolt would probably be the weak link. I know the joint itself is really stout. And no that does not include any of the tools. 1200, 200...

I saw that fat stack of washers. School me why would you need to adjust the height?

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Thanks for the pic gator. I assume the bottom looks the same? I was thinking the 3/8 or 1/2” both might not be up to the task of handing all the forces the rudders might see. But if you have that big single hung off a pair of 1/2” h joints then 3/8 should be plenty for the 24x48 rudders I’m going to...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

I have seen photos of some guys running the heim joints on their rudder mounts. Some with heim and a conventional looking brace under it on the bottom mount. Never saw a heim joint on a rudder mount in this part of the world. Looking for opinions.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Yea. I’m going to flip the pedal and mount it up thru the bottom of the floor and put a over travel stop on it. I’ll post some pics when I get it mocked up. It will look similar to a typical airboat pedal.
