Re: Build a Gantry?

I checked out the tow behind lift at Aba Daba Rents they said they go to 6'. I don't think that's high enough when you consider the height of the engine and the height of the hull on the trailer. Remember their number? Jim No, I hated them, they had old gear that was warn out. Blue line on elder cr...

Re: Build a Gantry?

Why not rent one of the tow behind engine hoists. They go really high(used them for long shaft outboards) and are like $25 for the day. Used them too flip boats too.

Green back rentals always had them 916 9893000. Fun my not lived there for years, but I still remember their number

Re: Cold Starting - Should I be Concerned

2 things I would check 1 st choke linkage 2nd is to make sure your CARB is not dumping fuel I to the intakes while trailering. The carbs on the older 4.3 were known to leak fuel I to the intakes while trailering. If you can pull the back spark plugs easily, I would do that at the ramp and see if the...

Re: Seriously???????

That bridge looked like a I-beam itself, the top, the bottom, and the triangle trusses in between. If the triangle trusses in between is the web, then the top & bottom make a I-beam. Did you see the photos of the demolition crews jackhammering it apart? It is full of re-bar. If you got a I-beam...

Sourcing Holly?

I have been looking for a source for holly, but I can not find one. Does any one know of a source for 4/4 Holly in decent lengths? I have called all the major suppliers on the west coast and the best I can find is ply wood. Which is interior only.

Re: Seriously???????

From the pictures I saw I wonder if it was an installation error. The bridge was made off site and put onto dollies to move into place. It is entirely possible that during that process they stress something they should not. I'm sure in about 6 months will know just about everything. I know one thing...
