Re: Continental overhaul

Yep, Justin's another one that always has high reviews. Haven't seen him on SA in awhile, but his username is JT540. Here's a link to PM JT540.

Where's he located. I was thinking Apopka, but not positive about that.

Re: Continental overhaul

Glad to hear you still have the same setup.

My old runout's at 11 yrs. and counting. Still has that same F.I. setup you hooked up on it back then. Runs rich, but strong.

Moore's Aircraft Engines, Inc. (407) 422-4318 mooresaircraft@gmail.com I haven't had an engine built by anyone since about 198?, but that's who I'd go with if I was shopping. I run with quite a few of his customers over here on the river and they all love their motors, Continental & Lycoming. Rick

Re: Submerged object Lake Hatchineha

Wasn't there a thread on here about hazardous objects where you could post coordinates? Duece Yes, there was a "Navigational Hazard" forum created under the "Airboat Safety" forum. It's still there, but has never really seen much activity: https://southernairboat.com/phpBB3/view...
