    Default Ok, I need a jet vocabulary lesson.

    This is going to show off my ignorance, But what is a BBF and BBC, I have seen this used alot in reference to motors, something to do with BB(Ford) or BB(Chevrolet)? Even if I am on the right track, what is the BB? Go ahead and rib me, I can take it.

    Default Thanks

    That was about as close to obvious as it gets, Thanks. I Guess I have a BBO (Olds), but from what i hear that is undesireable. Works so far for me, but then again I dont race, just cruize, and alot of skiing!

    Another one you'll wanna learn about is the 'donut'. If you bust one in a jet boat you can sink it.

    Holy SH!T!!!

    This whole time I thought a BBC meant "Badly Beaten Crap" and a BBF meant "Big Bulky Focker"

    I guess that would make the Olds a "Big Balled Overhaul"

    Or the Olds could be a "Badly Bastardized Outboard"

    Some people enjoy beating a dead horse and others, like myself, just beat the dead horse out of habit. What's your reason?
