Bimini tops?

I'm sure ya'll know what tops work with what boats? I've got a 2001 Air Ranger 8ft wide 15 ft long 4 seater.... I see a bunch of tops that are cheap but the measurements always seem odd. I know some of our local air boaters have bought new kits and modified them? Anyone know of a affordable bimini t...

Re: First airboat. Have no idea what Ive got myself into....

I had the vent plugs out of the mags and only find a dot to line up? I'm guessing need to open the mags and set them up internally , then install into engine that's on TDC -25deg- thats marked on the flywheel?

JT I will call you today.

Thanks SA for the help ...we will get it eventually...LOL.

Boy I'm glad to hear a builder listening to Texas Air boaters about what it takes to run a boat in our water! Outstanding DM. Most builders tell you we are crazy for wanting more T bar / braces, 1/2 poly and 2 midship braces! Heck I have 13 Tee bars and 1/2 poly and have snapped a midship brace and ...

Ok Aircraft gurus....we got new oil, new plugs, soaked the cylinders in PB Blaster, fresh fuel line a good pump,and we got it spinning over but NO SPARK?

Re: HELP PLEASE CHEVY 383 RUNNING HOT TEMP 210

Depends on a bunch of things that have already been stated -timing, air locked, fuel mixture, etc....but how many RPMs are you pushing? I run in the Texas heat at 6200 RPM at WFO and will run 210 or hotter if I stay in it. 200-210 aint bad fella if it does not go any higher? Check the gauge, are you...
