Re: Boats with no mufflers

Man, I hope we don't get no "Hours Of Operation" for airboats here in Brevard County !!!! Wonder if you can rig up some sort of "TEMPORARY" muffler system where they can remove it when they get to the testing and tuning areas.. Thus being a lot less noisy when headed back to the hill to load up.. So...

Re: 540 Lycoming 300 hp exhaust size 2.5 or 3"?

Those are some really nice custom exhaust set ups! Looking at the pvc mock up's, it could get harry if you are just a little off on your markings. But it seems like they know what they are doing. Great to hear that some are actually gaining RPM's or HP from doing their homework...... and getting som...

Re: 220 running hot

definitely get an oil pressure gauge... just by watching that can notify you that there is an issue before major damage is done.. Cylinder temps will climb a lot higher than that, but 300 is high for oil temp.. As stated, clean oil cooler, get a oil pressure gauge.. Are you reading it BEFORE or AFTE...

Re: WHERE CAN I GET ONE OF THESE, CONTINENTAL 0470 ENGINE MO

Wade ( Hamant Airboats ) did a great job with mine.. I have 4 of these mounts on my 0-470. He leveled these mounts on the motor and cut the bottoms LEVEL (flat) and welded a thick piece on the bottom. Now it works the same as the ANGLE mounts, (with the bolt that goes thru the bottom into the interi...

Re: 12' ALUMINUM OPEN HULL, 0470, 74" PROP

Just a question, If I may... Where did you get the wire at??? That wire looks like it has collectors at each wire intersection... Never seen that before.. Since 1985 (at least 9 airboats ago) the wire was always welded or pre attached.. Never seen it where there were some type of clamp apparatus at ...

Nice thing is RIGHT NOW, not all of those trails are open.. A lot of mud trails..
