Re: Australian Build - Timber Options - Suppliers

use the Pacific /Queensland Maple aka Meranti for frames and battens,sands glues and bends well some of the longer lengths usually come warped but that is useful for some of your bends and as a result many suppliers are reluctant to stock. Douglas Fir /Oregon for the stringers is easily got :D

Re: Support Knowledge Base - Inboard engine builds

Spot on Kens I want to get peak torque down by 1000 rpm with an increase of hp down lower so it all works better with a 12'' prop.
Plan for better top speed and better fuel consumption at cruise.Would have been cheaper with a chev, but the jag engine is lighter and different :D

Re: Support Knowledge Base - Inboard engine builds

Well I just received my crankshaft that I sent to Birmingham AL had it stroked 3/8".
And new pistons for 10.5:1 comp ratio so I shall start to document this build
have posted photo of standard crank compared to the knife edged lightened crank that I had stroked

Re: modified malahini

I used a carbon canister it helps kill the gas fumes from the vent , will almost certainly become a requirement soon.
