Re: New engine cooling issue

I want to make sure I'm understanding what you are saying. How many radiator caps does your system have? Do you happen to have any pictures of your setup that you can post?

Re: Alumatech long tube BBC headers

I can say from experience those headers will work but definitely won't last a very long time. I've already got double the time out of my Norman Clay headers and they still have a lot of life left in them. Yes Norman Clay headers aren't cheap but they are built by far the best on the market for airbo...

Re: Airboat Safety Course members needed

You have other options if you are interested. $1000 is a little pricey for a class of 8 or more. You can get the class done for less and don't need 8ppl. Yes it's a little cheaper if you have at least 3 but it still isn't $1000 for 1 person. Contact me if you would like. You can either contact me he...

Re: Stinger gearbox bushings

Yes they are a normal wear item. They go bad even faster if oil is constantly getting on them. Yes you can replace just the green but you have to buy them in a set so you are better off changing them all. You can buy them from Stinger directly or from a dealer like Alumitech Airboats.

Re: Airboaters Alliance Time To Unite

You would see more riding way down south if they would stop closing the glades. Tell me about it. The big problem is just wait until the water plan is done and they keep an average of 3- 3 1/2 feet of water year around in most of the Glades. Most people don't know that this is their plan and we are...

Re: Got a SS welding question...

The correct gas is a tri-mix. 90% Helium / 7.5% Argon / 2.5% Co2. What Whiskers said is correct. With that said yes you can use 75/25. I use it all the time to mig weld stainless. It's definitely not the best option but it will definitely work. Like Unforgiven said, make sure you turn your machine ...

Re: BBC - Oil Cooler Location

This is also a very good possibility. If your pickup tube has a crack up high or even a possibility that the pickup tube came out/broke off. This would make since of why it's only doing it when the boat is going down hill. This would mean the oil is running away from the pump, causing it to suck air...

Re: BBC - Oil Cooler Location

I can't fully answer your question about why it's doing what it is doing but I can tell you that running 2-3 quarts over the fill line isn't good. Most oil coolers don't hold more than a half of quart more than what the motor holds. Also even with the oil cooler you should still use the full mark on...

Re: Did they close the glades up or not

It's called they are getting us use to it being closed. Once the water plan is completely done and they hold 3'+ of water mostly year around it will pretty much be closed all the time. Just think of it as getting us seasoned to the reality.

Re: 220 gpu fuel issues

Sounds like you have a carb problem or maybe an air leak in one of the fuel lines. Do you run regular pump full in it? If you do you most likely have build up in the carb from the ethanol. The ethanol drawls in moisture and causes major problems. The worse thing for a carb when using pump gas is it ...

Here is the answer to your question. It's a crock of crap because the water isn't high. This always seems to happen on opening weekend of Gator hunting season.
