    New member Introductions
    Probably 7 years here as Cjbuilder1 but try as I may could not reset password nor contact Admin so here I am back as 71Blazer out of Fresno, Ca. Ride in a '78 Campbell20 or '72 Sanger Family Skier. Both are survivors with the Campbell getting repowered and the Sanger reupholstered.
  4. Chevy LS exhaust logs. Starting a drive to have them made.

    I have wanted to use an LS for sometime, myself and I find a lot of guys. The hickup is always the exhaust. Unless you want to run headers and give Basset $1,200.00 the only other route is turbo headers from Performance Headers, short primaries and needing mods. I really don't want headers, wet...

    Obama slammed by black Chicago residents: 'Worst president ever' - Washington Times Seems the sheep aren't real happy with O and the clown posse right now. I am guessing he will throw out a few more free I phones to keep them happy.

  9. New Kenwood KDC X997 Locks Out After Starting Engine

    Replaced my old stereo that worked fine with radio and CD's. The new KDC X997 will lock up almost every time after I start the engine. I have to pull the face plate and push reset button to get it going again. When I start I see the stereo go blank, sometimes it will come back after about 30 to...

  12. 496 MAG difficulty starting

    Bob Teague
    My 2006 Gen VI 496 MAG runs great from initial morning start, but after running a while at Mojave (~106* ambient temp), it is very difficult to start. It begins to fire right away, then immediately dies, almost like a sticky choke or vapor lock condition. Vapor lock is likely not the problem...

  15. Float starting point?

    GN7 On the Dyno
    I just replaced my holley bowls on my 850 4150dp with quick fuel quick change bowls with fuel sight windows. I'm planning on starting the boat up today. Prior to installing them is there a rough position to set the needles to get the thing started? I'm not sure how high in the fuel the floats...

  17. [Pics] Remember to use that blower before starting!

    PB Open Water
    At 11:30am today a twin engined boat was being launched at the Islander Resort in Lake Havasu. As the engines were started, the boat exploded and burst into flame. I have no more direct information but from what I can piece together it was very likely a build up of gas vapors in the engine...
