Re: Crankcase ventilation and flame arrestor questions

your carb only has one port and its for venting the fuel pump? Are you planning on vacuum advance for your distributor? Cause if you are your going to need a port on the carb for that as well.(below the throttle plates) You might need to get a spacer plate that goes between the carb and intake manif...

Re: Crankcase ventilation and flame arrestor questions

FWIW, you have to have the crankcase vented somehow or you will end up with leaks. I would have a breather on one valve cover(to allow fresh air to enter the motor) and a PCV valve, with a hose leading to the intake manifold/carb/or flame arrestor assembly, on the other valve cover to allow gasses t...

Paul, is this appliciable if you were to sell a used boat you built or just if you build new for resale purposes?

Fuel wise the same motor in a Vdrive will also be more economical(use a little less fuel) then it would be in a jet.

Re: Hot Rod Vs Thunderbolt

thanks Paul, there is some debate on the Vdrive site as to the value of a whip strut but I think they are a good idea. The general concensous, over there, is that a 1" shaft made from good material is more then strong enough for the HP most of use will ever have. Paul, I noticed in another post that...

At 18'-6", the Tornado is another candidate.

Re: CRACKER BOX

I I think Novass said my bobtail motor wouldn't work, but it seems to work OK. Where did I say this? :? I quickly went though the threads you posted in and the only negative comment I can find that I said about your build is that "I'd be concerned that a motor installed this way would have aeration...

Re: introducing myself and asking for advice.

that is what I was wondering about? Possibly that would have helped. It would have gave a much more uniform surface to apply the fiberglass to.

Re: Problem translating the list of material to the Phantom

ya the metric stuff does not equate out exactly to the imperal stuff.

6mm is close enough to 1/4"
9mm is close enough to 3/8"
12mm is close enough to 1/2"
18mm is close enough to 3/4"

I wouldnt sweat the miniscule differences between the two meansument systems.
