    Hardin Marine SS Sea Pump

    Might want to inspect the thermostat. If it sticks that can reduce flow when your up in the rpm's but will be sufficient at low rpms' or idle.

    Waterproofing seat risers with Flex Seal?

    I ended up coating it all with 2 coats of resin. Only downside to doing this, is that it is hard on a staple gun when you go about putting the vinyl on. The staple gun I found that was the best was the Dewalt carbon fiber T50.

    Merc block mounted fuel/water punp: rebuild or new?

    Yep, exactly why after every season the raw water pump oil gets changed.

    Merc block mounted fuel/water punp: rebuild or new?

    A lot of people think because they smell fuel mixed with the oil that the fuel pump diaphragm went bad. 90% of the time that is not the case. Mercury even states and so does a lot of marine techs that the fuel vapors will pass through the diaphragm membrane. I have a brand new raw water pump and...

    Warlock prop help!

    Some people may “toss” it around, however I ran a 24p and it worked great from my 22p and did what I needed. It was recommended to me by the shop to lab it to get a bit more out of it and it did just that. If you read what I posted I suggested a 24p, labbing was an option.

    Warlock prop help!

    Get in touch with cutting edge propellers in Orange County. Imop with your hp range you are right around a 24p (definitely a 4 blade prop). A labbed 24p might just be your ticket, it is what I run in a 24’ 450hp with a B1. Towing tubes or with a lot of bodies on the boat I swap out to a 22p.

    RPM Limitations of Outdrives w/ LS based Engine?

    When I talked to Max Worx about my B1, he told me 500 was pretty much the limit on a B1 with the thin floor gears. The later model B1’s (thicker floored gear) could goto 600 but to be gentle on the hole shots.

    Cylinder head tech for roots blowers

    Static compression is not the same as dynamic compression. The latter is what you need to be concerned about. Methanol injection is a bandaid and does fail. Also a roots blower is a “positive displacment“ compressor, meaning the air is always compressed and heated. Therefore you will always...

    Alpha bellows

    The socket for the shift cable jam nut is a deep well 7/16, the inside nut that is a part of the cable I believe is a 5/8.

    Water Pressure Gauge

    This was my placement for a w/p gauge. Canton racing makes a t-stat block off plate with a air bleed (search amazon) also got the liquid filled pressure gauge “winters” brand from amazon. Hope this helps.

    Waterproofing seat risers with Flex Seal?

    Has anyone tried using Flex Seal as a waterproofing agent instead of resin for their seat risers? I had to rebuild my rear bench seat riser because the original was completely destroyed from water damage. I was thinking along the lines of how rhino lining works and thought since you don’t see...

    Drilling it can be a pain, $25 at your local machine shop gets it done.
