That knock sound isn't from the jugs....its coming from the crankshaft.....there is a counterwieght that makes that sound....they all do it.....something your going to have to get used too.......there are some guys on here with the manuals on a disk or in the actual computer or some guys like me have an actual hard copy and parts can be bought all over the place just look in airboating magazine.....where are you located, that will also determine where to get parts if you just want to go pick them up!!!!

Do a search on here the manuals are in a file on Southern already. Also you can search for Ducarra aviation for parts they have almost everything if you are not in florida. In florida there are a lot of members on here that stock most of the gaskets you will need.

A friend of mine bought a boat with a 220 and hes been on my boat plenty of times prior to this but the whole time we were checkin out the boat before he bought it he kept telling me you hear that.......this thing has a knock......I said they all do it......get used to it......I still joke with him about it now.....I ask him when are you gona fix that knock???

I have heard of guys taking that counterweight off of the crankshaft but you can't spin too high of an RPM....again....this is what I have heard!!!!

If you need parts, call Danny at Sawgrass.
