  1. Outdrives
    I have a 1997 Chaparral 2130SS bowrider that I bought from the original owner last summer with about 1000 hours on the 350 Mag and Bravo III. I had it checked over thoroughly by a good mechanic who, by coincidence, recognized the boat when he saw it and confirmed that it had been serviced...

    Guys, I have a 78 SJ with a 505. I put the GGB exhaust silencers in it two years ago. It made a good difference. However, it is still loud! Is there something out that can really make this thing quite? Don't get me wrong, it's like music to my ears but I would sometimes like something quite...

    What is this noise? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eD8-oklXBG8 You will hear it at 00:29 and 00:34. Happens once in a while around 4800-5000 RPM's after a couple seconds. I let off, it goes away. Valve float? Something else?

Noise is prevalent at idle, stops over 1,000 RPM...noise is in gear or in neutral...

    Please help as i`m lost. Am working on a Gen 5 454 in a 1962 Chevy station wagon. When the present owner bought the car it had lifter noise at idle and worsened as rpm increased. The previous owner had installed a supposedly new cam, lifters and adjustable rocker arm studs. I tried adjusting the...

    I just got back from a river trip and now my 04 Silvy has a whining squealing noise from the right rear wheel. It intermittently matches the wheel rotation and seems to not be a brake issue. As I said I was at the river so it was submerged several times. Is there something I need to relube maybe...

    First post, long time reader I recently had my BBC rebuilt from an issue with a rocker spinning off, pushrod tearing up cam and dropping debris down to lower. So, just rebuilt top to bottom, bored .090 over, balanced and stroked. I have a hydraulic medium cam, everything is new minus heads...

Every thing was going fine and on the way back to the landing I decided to open it up for a little bit then it happened. Even though every is pretty much stock I heard a noise that sounded like a...

    I picked up a couple rocks last time out, I pulled the clean out cover today, picked the rocks out. They dinged up the face of the impeller slightly but not much to worry about. Looked everything over good and ran water through the pump with the hose. Ran water through the motor and let it run a...

    Pulled the 342" ( 4.00 x 3.40) out of the Mustang Bonneville car and put it on the dyno. Dad had the build sheet from the guy who owned the car and it seemed like a stought little engine: The engine needs a little re-fresh as it over-heated 3 times at Bonneville and has a small water leak...
