    Default Getting Towed In

    I haven't been towed in over 3 years, and here it is. It started sputtering and surging and backfiring. At first, I thought it may have been a loose electrical connection, then it progressively got worse. So I'm thinking it may be in the cap or dizzy.

    More pics. I had to stop the engine and increase the water flow to the headers cause when I was towing him they were dry and everything was getting hot. That is why in the second pic you see a lot of steam and his GF has a towel covering her.

    Good time today though.

    It was like getting a facial.

    TJ, thank you for the tow.

    The problem seems to have been the 6000 chip in the MSD box. We all checked a few things out on the motor, but the biggest change was pulling the limiter...and it worked without missing a beat.

    The only real bummer about being towed is if your ice chest is OUT !

    never go for a run/speed pass unless ur ice chest is full of beer. 1 of the worst things is to be outa beer when sitting and waiting for a ride/ being towed

    I would have to agree. Being dead in the water with no ice cold beverage really sucks. I got pulled in a few years back and didnt like it very much so I always make sure I have a ice chest in the boat at all times.
