I didn't see that in person but the video makes the bushing look out of line, but the wobble is right to left very slight and i can't see it in the video. Top pic is how all the bushing looked i ddin't see a problem with them. Ran it yesterday at 3a ran great. As far a bur on the pin not sure what to even look for lol. thanks again guys learning alot. :thumbleft:

Bought an airboat with 27 hrs on her and had a pretty good knock between idle and 2000 rpm. Owner said belt slap. After I added hrs to it I found hub and flex plate really messed up. Hub and flex plate are tuff. I now know more about airboats than I ever wanted. Most people assume or think. That dont get any where. These parts are tough but if something doesnt look right or sound right, it ain't. Check check and check Your stuff more...Pic on the way....
