Randy,

I'm about to order a cogged belt drive from Paul Dixon from Airboats Unlimited. I'm going to have the 4 belt drive that came with my Dixon Twister (with 35 HP B&S) for sale real soon. Let me know if you're interested and I;ll make you a great deal.

George

George, Why the switch? Is the ratio the same? I think the four belt drive ratio is something like 1.78:1

Randy, I'd like to see you use Grade #8 bolts as much as you can with this .... especially for the bolts in the prop hub and for the
pillow block mounts. You sure don't want any of that stuff to get loose when you're running it and they're good insurance.

olf the bolts in the pillow blocks are mine and i can easly replace them when i put my new belt on but arrow prop gave me the bolts with the propeller hub surely a propeller company wouldn't give me low grade bolts with their hub

at this point im just hopeing it will move it didn't feel like it was pushing much air to me...

Always lost code of entrance?

Have knows not the weight of the boat, the height and the thickness of the wood?
