Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Thanks Hoodman, it seems to work pretty well, the foam is very light so the boards are plenty strong.

Pshychobilly, my fuel tank comes out (easier when empty I'm sure) so I can still get back there if I have to...but I hope I don't have to!

Bouyancy

I decided to put in some 1/8" plywood strips within the expanded foam and then screw those bits that stick out to the frames. You can see my foam molds with the slots for those plywood strips in the pics below. I then wrapped them in heavy duty garbage bags before installing the bouyancy. Hopefully ...

Electrical questions

I have a few electrical questions as follows on my PCM 343 wiring harness: 1. Why are there 2 ignition fuses (both 20A)? 2. What is the ignition relay vs the starter relay? a.

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Carl, I'll echo what Roberta said, I'm doing all the wiring (and running fuel lines, blowers, etc) under the deck before I add the deck. Its so much easier to see and access while I can reach through the deck.

good luck!

Happy New Year everyone!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Roberta, Thanks for the information on the buzzer and other useless wires. That solves a lot of questions! I have the 25 ft harness, its already run to the dash and as of yesterday, it now has a fancy 8 pin and 2 pin (senders and big power and ground). I'll go to the garage and formulate some more q...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

TomB, the light system you reference appears to be the same one referenced by Milhouse. I went through the questions and found 2 answers! One that said it needs 100 to 120 V power source, the other answer says that you can connect directly to 12V. Not sure where to go yet. DrBryanJ, those look like ...

LED strips

Hey Carl, thanks! it is fun but harder work. As someone (Roberta??) said, this is where the thinking starts. OK, I saw where Milhouse put in LED strips that look really cool. I followed his link but it said those were 110V. Either he spliced in 12 V or attached the wrong link. I've looked, cant real...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

I have another question regarding wiring, I have the PCM 343 motor, I have the 8 pins coming off the engine as shown below. My question is relative to the check guages wire. The circuit 1 on the 8 pin connector below shows “check gauges lamp” but the asterisk says this is for CES (Clean Emission Sys...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

those sole panels are lovely! I used plywood and will cover them with something. Not sure what yet.

I do remember those may have taken and entire weekend to put in!
