Thanks guys, yup days and days of polishing, adjusting, setting and just plain scrubbing. Was ready to fire Friday night..no fire. Surfed all day for a place to get a mag serviced, said point gap .016 on the label so i cleaned and set the points and Boooya!!!! Mags run a .018 plug gap for future reference. Gotta bore a hole in the valve cover for a breather, i got one w/ no hole so i can have them both at the same end, check the oil in the blower and v-drive, put in the seats and i can go get it wet. I'm three weeks out with my upholstry guy. Gonna get some drag boat seats and have the stock Sanger stuff done too. We're removing the brown paint and redoing the graphics......looking for ideas on graphics   SEND SOME PICS!!

Took the bad boy out yesterday, Mead. Rough as hell, ran outta gas, got towed in. Going to hook up with Jim below Laughlin to day. FR haules ASS!!! more like driving a car, more intimate with engine it seems. Exaust noise actualy goes away at cruiseing speed, can still hear blower and v-drive tho

This kid actualy asked us if we were pirates today. I dunno, maybe it was the doorag and ponytail thing... Jim and I floated from Laughlin to Needles today and hauled ass back up again just before dark. nice day just too many jetskis. Boat ran good all day. Went to Mead yesterday, boat ran good till it ran outta gas, switched to the other tank and wouldnt run, got towed in. Too many jetskis. Got this weird ass tank switch, arrow doesnt point to line your using....so anyway  IT"S ALIVE!!!!

Title: Re: Its ALIVE!!!
Post by: HDriderTH on July 04, 2007, 04:59:00 PM
the good news is, bad gasket no cracks. The bad news is the blower is trashed. Need to get a blower built in ten days!! Anybody know someone? I'll be calling The Blower Shop, BDS and all of them but if anybody knows ANYTHING , let me know ASAP. The fucr ran good, jus low boost and water in #1 everytime I pulled the plug. Props to blunun for comming up w/ the water tee I need for my headers...I'll getcha a brownie point later. Looking for a control valve. Pics to follow..
