Re: how much for a belt drive for 4.3

There might be a few in the classifieds or you can give some of the belt manufactures a call and price out a new one. All the gearboxes mate up to standard chevy engines I believe..not so sure about the belt box but I would figure that they would fit a wide variety of engines as well.

I think mine is 15* and then 32* all in by 3k. There are a couple threads on here discussing it. Just google something like "chevy 350 timing southernairboat" and you should be able to find it. :thumbleft:

Re: fuel efficient vs h.p.

If you have a decent HP to weight ratio you should have a pretty efficient set up, generally speaking. It's kinda like vehicles, smaller ones are more efficient than heavier rigs but with that said..while bigger engines eat more fuel; they don't necessarily have to work as hard as the smaller ones t...

Re: What your take on an IVO 3 blade?

I think its a great prop as long as you don't put it on an airboat :lol:

I almost went that route but decided to wait and save up for a more suitable composite prop.

Re: 350 vortex question.

I've got a 350 with a gearbox and a holley 600cfm on top of it and it has worked well for me. If your running direct drive you may be able to run a smaller carb like the 500 I assume.

I think I recall summit or jegs having the adapter you need. I purchased a connector thru summit. The local parts stores carry different diameter piping as well which might help you out too

It's not a woods running, ground pounding set-up. But, I bet with the longer tail pipes, it's real quiet and Quiet is Way Cool!! Looks a lot like a pulling truck exhaust system. Quiet is very cool to me. I figured putting the bigger square mufflers on top of the headers along with the smaller diame...

The originality of features on a home-built airboat gives it certain personal characteristics that set it apart from others.

Re: I got my exhaust done this weekend. Check it out!

A set of airboat headers probably would have solved the whole problem. No doubt :thumbleft: From my angle, the exhaust pipe looks pretty horzontal coming at right angle off the upper end of the mufflers, be sure there is a little down and out slope to it that you don't get rain water blown down the...

If that is what you want. I would not go for it on my boat for many reasons. Weight and vibration may be your problem in the future.
