That's actually more expensive if you do the math. The kicker was I ran their break in oil first, which was 100 for THAT case, and to only run it a few hours was crazy, but I did it, lol. Now if I don't figure out where it's leaking from on the pan, this thing's gonna bleed me to death slowly like an ex-wife! >:D  (Small leak, but after running the boats as hard and as long as we did sunday, quite a pool of oil in the bilge and it needs about a half qt.)

Lol there's the push. But you want GOOD oil, use what I use in the moo. The Blue one uses VR1 50 weight for now. Gonna change this winter when she gets a new engine! (And yeah, I'll figure out the oil leak, just a matter of cat and mouse time!)

We'll figure it all out, now onto the Submarine and the new Hallett, just dunno where I'm gonna go on those, lol

well memorial weekend i rode the harley out, almost got hit (by a guy on the other board) when he decided to run a stopsign. didnt plan to put the boat in at all cuz i kept the ole lady at home. so i pulled the carb off and took it to my buddies house for a rebuild. the jets were so damn clogged im surprised it even ran. got the carb all rebuilt and ran it on the garden hose. way better. also found out the have it setup up as a 2 barrel with the secondaries locked shut. so a new carb is added to the winter list. the winter list is getting very long and expensive. i need jerry lewis to do a tele-thon to raise some boat funds for the winter re-do

yeah the rock bar between the 2 islands.  only thing visible was the few weeds growing.  guess we were not the only ones to hit it bc the guy that came to help us said  he had just helped some one else. lol.  only had a few rocks wedged in the impeller.  :banghead:  gottem out and she ran great!!!!

8 of us had to help my buddies wakeboard v-drive off that thing. he center punched it so we had to lift and carry the boat about 30 feet for it to float. if i woulda saw you i woulda helped. i know how it is to have people look the other way. who drives 20 feet off someones bow and then hits the place diverter, when the guy is floating down the river sitting on the bow with a paddle in his hand? i had 6 boats all drive past me while i was paddling and not a single boat stopped. big river is starting to get like every other place on the river.

Yeah i have noticed that as well about big river.  sometimes i will go up river and float down and get the oar out just to stay away from the edges and for every 5 to go by one will stop.

ray i read on the other board, couple guys were having tossing problems. 1 culprit was the belt not sitting deep enough in the crank pulley, and the other culprit was having the oem pulley on the alt. the pulley was spinning too fast at the rpms we run. worth a shot i guess

I'm kinda thinking the same thing. But it stayed on forever until the Hyfire unit fell off the firewall and knocked it off the first time (good thing too, woulda destroyed the hyfire!). The belt flipped inside out and always is when it comes off. Ordered a reduction deep groove crank pulley, any ideas or anyone have a larger deep groove alt pulley layin around? Gonna try a new belt when the pulley gets here, hopefully that'll fix it!

well i finally got back from the river. did alot of stuff while i was out there the last 3 weeks. i painted the exhaust, made a new alternator bracket and got a new alternator. and put on the new to me holley 650. before i put on the carb i gpsed the boat and it ran 55.3 with a full cooler and the bimini on. with the same full cooler and bimini up it ran 58.7 but i had alot of chop which bounced the gps around and shut it off, so i dont know if that was my up river or down river pass. its nice actually having a 4 barrel that functions. i can feel the secondaries kick on. im very happy. next week i am going back out and im gonna put on another intake manifold just to try it.

well heres an update.
seems like everytime i go out something else needs fixin.
i jacked the motor up and replaced the flywheel. no more starter drag boat starts great.
couple trips ago the thrust bearing was growling. pulled the pump. this week started disassembling it, great news, the shaft is worn way down and the impeller is toast. found a local "legend" doing work out of his shop. this guy rules! hes sleeving the shaft and putting a new impeller on. the impeller has been cavitated to death. it doesnt look like itll be done before the blythe trip, but it will be done right. along with the new to me impeller, hes putting in a undersized brass wear ring. the impeller i have been running is a standard "A", per his recomendations we are going to a standard "b". with the rebuilt pump its like a dyno and i dont have the horses to turn the impeller.
