Re: MA-4-5 carb/engine application

If the MA4-5 isn't for an O540, what is the correct carb for the AV540?

Re: Top airboat manufacturers?

I bet the helicopter you fly does NOT have a car motor. Either a turbine or Lycoming. There is a reason for that...weight!!
Car motor or aircraft engine...personal preference.

Re: Boats been sitting for 8-9 years -- who to have look at

Check the fuel, put fresh oil in it. Turn it over with the mags off, let the oil circulate and then see if she will start. You may be good to go.

Yes sir! That is a great price. You will still need to purchase the US or Southeast Inland Lakes which comes on a sim card. Once you have that installed it is awesome! :proud:

Re: Speedometer on an airboat?

I purchased the Garmin 640 based on what I read on this site. Mount it below and to the right of my right leg using the RAM mount system. Easy to view when running. Great piece of equipment! I still carry my cell for emergency. :proud:
