    WTB VW bug motor

    Kind of a long shot, but I've been looking for a nice motor for my 66 bug. Something with 100-150hp naturally aspirated. I figure one of you might have something sitting in the garage. Currenrly has a mild 1776 with dual Dellartos, but I need more power!

    Small Eddie Marine hatch actuator

    This came with a bunch of boat parts I bought a few years ago and I have no use for it. 19" fully collapsed, not sure what the length is extended, but guessing it's around 35". Probably most suitable for a low profile boat. Not sure what it's worth. Does anyone have a use for it.

    91 Yamaha square nose rebuild

    Picked this up a few months ago to enjoy with a few of my friends and family that already have stand ups. I've only ridden it once but the stock motor feels good, much better than my cousins 650 kawi. My plan is to rebuild the hull this winter, and possibly upgrade the motor next winter. It...

    Boating content: prop recommendations

    We recently rigged a 26 Howard cat with a 540 N/A making 725hp at 5700. Currently we have 28 with 1.5 outdrive and this past weekend I did a short pass. The rpm went up to 5700 and then climbed to 6k and 91mph before I shut it down. I'm thinking we can pull a bigger prop. Do you...

    Proper oil level

    Let's talk proper oil level, what it is and how to figure it out. A while back I watched an engine masters and it showed the impact oil level makes on HP, which brings me to this weekend. We ran our 26 Howard for the 1st time since upgrading the steering to full hydraulic. We also changed...

    Need new valve covers

    We have a set of fabricated valve covers that look great, but leak. I think they got warped when they were powder coated. So now I need a different set. I'd prefer cast aluminum with breathers on each one, that will clear our lightning headers. What do you recommend?

    Car overheating

    I have an 88 Mustang with a 331 stroker motor making about 425hp. It's running a Mishimoto aluminum radiator with an electric fan and a belt driven water pump. Up until last week it's always stayed at 180, unless I drove it hard, at which point it would get up to about 210. This last week I...

    My buddy is currently in Big Bear with his 2000 Shockwave which has a 454 mag. He just called looking for help because it's running terrible. He replaced the fuel filter and said he can hear the fuel pump turn when he turns the ignition on. He said it fires up but then stalls right away. He...

    Boat wont turn right

    Some of you may have followed the build of our 2003 Howard Cat. So far we've put about 3hr of drive time on it and this morning we developed a new issue. The boat will not turn right. It turns to the left fine, but it comes back to center and won't go any further. It has dual hydraulic ram...
