Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Your build is looking really good, that walnut will look really cool! I am in a similar state as to shaping cover boards, I stopped awhile back on them because I want to put the deck on so that it all flows well. Billy C said "its best to leave a small flat for the rub rail to sit on". This has been...

exhaust hose source

Hey Folks,
I've started my search for exhaust hoses. It seems I need about 7 ft per side of 3.5 in hose.

I like the vetus stuff but cant seem to find a source that sells less than a role of 66"! can anyone help a guy out on a source that sells by the foot?

Thanks and hope you are all well!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

psychobilly,
I cleaned it all up 3 years ago, and within a week it looked just the same, now I only clean at critical points of varnishing!

The other excuse could be, I have successfully overcome ADD and Anorexia!


How's Australia (I'm jealous)?

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

JimmyY,
I found that with my plug cutter, the longer the plug, the more it tapered and fit in the hole better.

Cutting them off with a vibrator saw is only about 2 seconds each and it doesnt matter how long they are!

Hercdrvr, Thanks!

heater hose

hey Guys,
I am re routing my coolant overflow tank to the back of the motor. I need to cut and put in 2 90 deg fittings. Any suggestion for 90 deg barbed hose fittings?

I've not found a supply yet. Considerations are brass or stainless I suppose.

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Billy, I've got more research to do on the prop but he could provide that as well. Its discount inboard marine which is where I got my motor too.

Thanks again for your help!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Hi Billy, I've communicated all via email with the exact information presented previously and copied herein. I calculated my shaft length to be 45 3/4" long with the following beyond the strut (1" diameter shaft): -standard SAE taper 2 3/4" -standard SAE beyond the taper 1 3/4" (leaves room for thre...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

I suppose I will give him the dimensions he wants, if its short I can add a spacer between tranny and prop couplings.

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Ken, I originally gave him the tranny to strut, but I had already calculated the rest based off standard SAE information, he said I had too much behind the strut distance. I have access to a metal lathe and can reface the flanges as necessary and agree its important to ensure its face is square to t...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Matt,
I'm sorry I may not be clear.

Using standard SAE dimensions I go t 5.5".

My shaft guy says I need a 4.6" dimension.

The debate is to go with either a 5.5" or 4.6" distance beyond the strut. My prop guys dimension seems tight to me!

Thanks for your interest and I hope I'm clear.
