Re: My New engine for my boat

None of them people never seen a prop explode obviously, hell when I have to go around my prop I almost sprint past it even though I know that don't make a difference as far as timing if it did decide to fly off the boat lol. Don't someone have a motor like that on their boat? Thought I heard about ...

Re: Question about her jugs...

:banghead: if it ain't one thing it's another. Got my new jug back on and was ready to fire her up and my starter goes out. If I had the means there would be an airtech kit on it. Tried hand propping like I could usually do but I thinks it's just to cold for her to fire off and my fricken arm is tir...

Re: WT Narrow on 220 gpu questions.

Gerald, you used the word "tracking your pitch marks" when you were adjusting your pitch. Do you mean to keep checking the marks? Patti, when we find the perfect pitch for our boat, should we use some type of loctite on the bolts? Johnny Yep only use never seize and tracking is by using an adjustab...

Re: Question about her jugs...

With the right tools, swapping a jug really isn't that hard. Pushrod tube spring compressor, cylinder base wrench, piston wrist pin push out tool, a ring compressor and a torque wrench. With a manual or somebody that's done it before to guide you, it's pretty straight forward. I still can't believe...

Question about her jugs...

I meant my boat...still figuring her out. What will happen when a jug starts to separate, will it blow slam apart or will the cylinder just go dead and have no compression? It's probably a dumb question but i figure it's either ask now or be stranded later cause I didn't ask. I be getting another on...

There was a video on Whirlwinds website where this guy drove his boat over a huge log pile or something like that. Thought that was interesting. I think cntry141iq tried the same thing to and didn't quite make it lol.

Re: WT Narrow on 220 gpu questions.

Question: when adjusting the pitch in the blades do I need to loosen all the bolts on the hub or just the outside? When I was doing it I had to loose all bolts just to get them to move and it seemed that the blades moved to much in the hub to be precise untill I started tightening the hub back up. I...

Yeah it looked big and bad out in the gulf and then once it hit land it broke all up. Didn't scare me off the water today but we did need the rain though.

Re: WT Narrow on 220 gpu questions.

Re: WT Narrow on 220 gpu questions.

if your doing 2900 on the trailer i'd atleast put another 1/2 degree you want to shoot for 2800 on trailer I was actually shooting for 2750 but i know my carb is acting up. I lose 100 to 200 rpms at random moments. I checked my tach with an aircraft tach and they both read the same. I will add more...

Re: WT Narrow on 220 gpu questions.

That 2600 with the 72/38 was when my motor is running right. I also think my carb is acting up because sometimes it would only turn about 2400rpms. I planned on changing out the 1405 edelbrock for a different carb. Now that the whisper tip is on I'll be working on getting that new carb. The #1 cylin...

Re: WT Narrow on 220 gpu questions.

Just placed my Whisper Tip Narrow on my 220 gpu, 13 1/2 fiberglass shed. The install was easily and the instructions for the pitch was straight forward. I set mine at 20 degree and put her in the water. Results - 2200 max RPM with very quick take off. Next trip out, I am moving to 15 degree and sho...

Just wondering what anyone running this prop on a stock pe-150 (220 gpu) on what pitch settings and rpms are you able to squeeze out of this motor. I just curious as to how strong my motor is verses other stock 220s. I'm thinking mine might be on the weaker side. I was turning a 72/38 paddle prop at...

Be nice to have someone close that would let u try out different ones like Dantheairboatman does. Never had a carbon prop before and I just don't want to be dissipointed when I drop that money roll for one.

I think Cntry is the closest to me if I'm not mistaken and Dantheairboatman is in citra. I wanna check out a WT narrow up close. Time for a prop and them's the only ones I don't see in the classifieds yet lol. My invisible prop ain't pushing my boat good enough.
