    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.

    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...

Now I'm having intake reset (leaked ) and I want to go with a back cut shoe to try and get ass of boat to lift and free up (as prior conversations it was breaking water about 4' from rear as you can see in my avitar ) .

    Hey guys! I got a cheetah with a 454, berkeley 12jc pump. I'm having a little starting issue. The dizzy looks original. Vacc advanced is plug and I believe(checked last year) the timing was at 24° degrees I believe at 3000, not positive and can't remember. Runs fine once started. But this...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    just a few quick questions before i head off to home depot and buy some supplies 1 what kind of wood should i buy to cover in carpet? 2 does a wider bunk help distribute the weight of the boat better or would it be a drawback to use more than a 2x4 (loading, travel shifting, ect.) 3 should my...

    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...

    I was talking to a buddy last night about the good ol' days when if you got the urge to go to the desert or to the river, you went. The culprit for a few of us was the price of gas making you think before you jump on those urges. Seems like everytime you do go to the desert, river, or anything...

    Hello all, New to me 1991 Commander jet boat is difficult to start. Replaced batteries yesterday and it takes both batteries to turn the engine over. Shouldn't it start on one battery? Brand new Exides. Engine is 454 with 9.5:1 compression, so it's not a really high compression engine...
