Well, it's about time we had another tea party and here's the link to the information.  http://www.sacteaparty.com August 28, 2009 Sac Tea Party  This isn't just about Northern California.  This out of control government is killing California.

Now for those liberal, tree huggers out there, this would be a good time for you to go visit Hugo Chavez.  I'm sure he could use the company.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Troubleshooting Help Requested
« on: July 14, 2008, 05:46:00 AM »
Ok folks,  I took the Miller out for the first time, yesterday for a test and tune run.  Here's what we've got going...  BBF 460, .030 over-bore, CAM unknown (Been trying to find this out for over 4 months.  Compression is 11:1 with Keith Black flat top pistons, Weiand Stealth Intake Manifold, Edelbrock Performer Carburetor, Performer, 750 cfm, 4-Barrel, Square Bore, Manual Choke, Single Inlet (1407).

To start with, this carb has been a BEECH to adjust for idle.  Found vacuum leaks and pulled the manifold and installed new Fel Pro intake manifold gaskets and copper coated them down.  Also had installed a Rex Marine cable (throttle) Chrome Steel Plate for throttle mount that fits under the carb  (pt # 242-107), Found that it was warped and was causing a bad vacuum leak, pulled that and installed new base gasket and solved that leak.  All the vacuum leaks are gone.

So here's the problem...  Finally got it to idle at about 1100 rpm, any lower and the damn thing sputters and dies.  So we set it to idle at 1100 just to get out and see how everythign else worked.  Well, from 1100 to about 2200 rpm we are up and on plane, from 2200 to about 3000 rpm we are back to sputtering and running rough, stab the throttle and the secondaries open up and away we go.  The engine seemed to love it when those secondaries open up and dump the fuel.  Ran like a BAT OUT OF HELL WOT!!!

Do I need to go to a bigger carb or could I have just gotten a bad carb?

The No Wake Zone / Recreational Boating Concern:
« on: June 18, 2008, 12:29:09 PM »
Now is the time to make your voices heard with regard to the impending permit process for any discharges from recreational boats, uninspected passenger vessels and commercial vessels. The public comment period is 45 days.

Recent court decisions have mandated that the EPA establish a permitting system for discharges from all vessels.  Recreational boats had been exempted from such permitting until now.  Unless Congress acts, the EPA, along with the states, will have to create a regulatory scheme by September 2008 in order to be in compliance with the court ruling. The EPA has announced their proposed permitting system, which is now available for public comment. 

Here's the link to the EPA: http://cfpub.epa.gov/npdes/home.cfm?program_id=350

There are TWO permitting systems:  One for large vessels 79 feet in length or longer and one for vessels smaller than 79 feet.  They both include recreational vessels and uninspected passenger vessels. Be sure you're reading the right one for your concerns.  I encourage all interested parties to voice their opinion during this 45-day public comment period.  Feel free to pass this along to others who might be interested.

The EPA and the U.S. Coast Guard are co-hosting three public meetings, a webcast and a public hearing.  Meetings will be held in Washington, D.C., Portland, OR, and Chicago, IL.  The webcast is July 2nd.  The Hearing is July 21st.  See the website above for more details.


A letter I received from Senator Feinstein:

Thank you for writing to me to share your support for the "Clean Boating Act of 2008." I appreciate hearing your thoughts about this legislation, and I welcome the opportunity to respond.

As you know, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must create and manage a Clean Water Act permit system for recreational boats by September 2008. I understand that recreational boating is a very popular activity in California, and I appreciate hearing your support for reinstating the recreational boat exemption.

I am pleased to inform you that I am a co-sponsor of the "Clean Boating Act of 2008" (S. 2766). This legislation would restore the exemption of recreational boats from EPA regulations regarding the discharge of pollutants such as engine cooling water, deck runoff, bilge water and gray water. Please know that I appreciate your interest in actively contributing to the legislative process, and I hope that you will continue to keep in touch on matters of importance to you.

Go to he web site and let her know how you feel:  http://feinstein.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=ContactUs.EmailMe

Let Boxer know too!!!:  http://boxer.senate.gov/contact/email/policy.cfm?CFID=40408335&CFTOKEN=84100417
