I did a Suzuki for my nephew years back.
He brought a box of parts to my 4th of July party and we semi drunkenly built a bike out of it.
The cylinder was oversized and tapered when we were finished(.010 over) but doing this on a lark out of a &50 assortment of semi matching parts we didn’t...
I use the bait blocks made for the big Tomcat bait box.
They have a hole in the middle and you can wire tie them where needed.
Started doing this to all my equipment after the little shitters built a nest in the air cleaner of my Kubota.
I hate meeses to peeces!
Put the battery in the bow and fuel forward.
I’m just over 300 with the same size boat and need to consider these things carefully.
I have mine balanced well enough that it runs fine with me solo or with the wife in front.
My hydrofoil is a big part of that but weight...
Looks like you did a nice neat job.
I can guarantee you one of two things will happen, it will work or it won’t.
Was going to say I have a spare power head if this doesn’t work, but Hanover is not as close as I thought.
Wondering about this.
“I know this won’t be the only thing as I’m noticing oil coming out of a few places and some dry rotted what I would assume seals.”
Where is the oil coming out from and what does it smell like?
I’d honestly give it a chance before rushing out and buying something else...
Change the impeller.
These have the water exiting with the exhaust so you’ll see some come out of little holes that are above the waterline (hopefully) when running.
Put a lot of hours on one of these lil paint shakers as a kid. A half gallon of gas would keep us going all day.
You’re most likely going to be low on compression on that bottom cylinder at first.
Running it and “heat cycling” 4-5 times it may free up the rings if they are stuck and you will want to do this before taking it out on the water.
As mentioned start with the pump.
If the pump “looks” ok it needs replaced. If it’s chunked there’s your overheating issue, pieces of the impeller clogging your cooling passages.
This will let it run ok at low speed, but block sufficient flow to cool properly under power.
Hope it’s not that...
Pappys bolded posting style threw me at first, but I just chalked it up to his posting style and went with it.
Never saw the need to get emotional about it.
Pappy: Don’t get shocked!
Op: Wah, you’re mean I quit…..takes ball and goes home.
There are two different intakes.
The two different Hp ratings can be achieved different ways and one intake shrouds the reeds and the other one does not. The one that shrouds the reeds is also 1/8” shallower than the “Good” one.
BRB, going to look for a pic.
This is the one you...
