Re: Everglades Youth Camp mid 60's

Awesome photos. That place is a fine legacy left behind by all the baddass Airboaters and Florida Conservation Clubs that built it. I think of what an accomplishment it was every time I have a chance to visit that place. https://www.flickr.com/photos/92027965@N08/15031243978/in/set-72157647510320141/

Re: Big Cypress Stories; Calvin Stone, Family & Friends

Cal Stone wrote a book called "40 years in the Everglades" It's a great read about his exceptional exploits "walking in the glades" He walked the Glades for a couple decades before he got a buggy. On his last great walk, we walk in with a friend off the Tamiami Trail, and five days later walked out ...

Re: True 200 spark plug gapping

Re: True 200 spark plug gapping

Yup, Battery ignition has it's advantages, as it eliminates the low speed operational holdbacks of running a magneto system. Fire Wide Gaps at any rpm. I believe some electronic systems offer adjustable timing, per rpm range. Performance wise that could offer allot of advantage as well. It also offe...

Re: True 200 spark plug gapping

Interesting gap set at timing deal there Skinnerback...
First I ever heard that one.

I would follow that on a race motor I think.
It would probably work awesome for a motor you don't plan to let idle very much, and has an ignition system in top condition, or is running a battery ignition system.

Re: True 200 spark plug gapping

You will get many differing opinions on this question. I think the answer is not dependent upon if it is a true 200 or not, but more so what magneto's your engine is equipped with. 1200 series mags are generally understood to be a hotter mag than the 200 series. It therefore understood that 2000 ser...

Re: What Happened To Pride And Workmanship?

If Bobby says he will make it right, he means it. Diamondback has always been the first in line to ante-up for every cause in Airboating. Including Operation Airboat where they pay to ship boxes and boxes of donated items to our troops in the M/E. Year after year, and that is but one example. Bobby ...
