    How's it going. Im looking to get some advice on a 950 quick fuel carb that I just got in trade. I'm currently running a 825cfm 4165 Holley which came stock on my Hardin 454 from day one. I have since freshened it up with a 30 over bore and a comp 280h cam. I'm running logs and dual plane...

    Little bit of a long post. Bought boat 7 years ago? Used maybe 10 times. 21 foot v-drive hull. Boat was originally used in Shaver Lake. 5500 ft in elevation. Boat runs fine at speed but it hates to idle. Will load up and emits a lot of black smoke which blackens the back of the hull and...

    Jet Boats
    I'm running a somewhat mild BBC 468 with a set of Holley 660's. Currently the jets are 78 primary and 82 secondary. Last time out, checked a plug and it was pretty lean. Also noticed on top end it had a bit of "surge" is the best way to describe it. Anyways, from experience, is it recommended to...

    GN7 On the Dyno
    Ran my rayson craft this weekend and after about 5 minutes felt like it was loosing power or possibly loading up. I wasn't running it hard just crusing around checking for leaks and other things.

  12. AV Gas to 91 Octane jetting changes

    GN7 On the Dyno
    I've read enough to realize I do not want to run straight AV gas anymore. I've probably run less than 50 gallons total through this engine. I read from a GN7 post you use about 7% more fuel when running straight AV. I may still mix some AV & 91, but not much AV. Currently the engine is dialed in...
