Road dolly trailer tires

Wed, 03/22/2017 - 20:53
What size speed/load rated tires are being used on the road dolly trailers?

I found Kenda Loadstar 205/65-10 load range E 10 ply (1650lbs) that measure 20.5x8-10

Wondering if this is what everyone is using?

Trump Breaks His 'buy American' Promise

Wed, 03/22/2017 - 17:28
I know there are a lot of individuals that live and breath Republican, no matter how much it hurts the average person or lower income individuals.
But, for the life of me I don't understand the fascination and support shown for Donald Trump.
Every day the reports come out showing how the average person is going to save $180 on their taxes, while the rich save $33,000 with the Republican Health Plan.

Now, Everyone can't save.
That lost revenue will be made up somewhere else, and most likely it will be past on to the local States to make up.
The average person is still going to carry the brunt of that lost revenue.

You may not like the cost of Obamacare, but the Republican plan will just shift the cost and there are many people who do benefit from Obamacare.
Yea, Obamacare could use some work, but it's already in place and many of the concerns are known that can be corrected.
The Republican plan is a shot in the dark, with everyone already knowing it will cost 20 million people their insurance.

Now, on to more exciting information as to how Trump is doing such a great job for America.
The pipeline mandate by Trump, is exempt from using American steel, even though he indicates they must use American Steel.
Go about 50 seconds into the video, unless you would rather just stick your head in the sand.
I know some will, they will regardless of the truth and keep praising Trump as a God.

Trump breaks his, 'Buy American' promise. He lied, and continues to lie about the use of requiring American steel for the pipe line.
HE EXEMPTED IT!

Take a look at the pics cyl. #4 piston melted. look at the gasket the engine builder used on it and how it is blocking the water cooling hole and how the other pics show they are unblocked.

Starter solenoid wiring question

Wed, 03/22/2017 - 07:26
I have an 84 Webbcraft Dynasty with the original 350 Chevrolet engine, I took the starter off the other day to have it rebuilt and have a question about the wiring on the starter solenoid. There is a brass or copper connector bolted to the solenoid where the main battery cable attaches and the hot wire for the trim pump attaches to that connector. Is that connector a distribution block or a fuse? I am not sure what it is an more importantly, if I can remove it? I am going to run the power and ground wires for the trim pump straight to the battery and do ay with h extra wiring going to the starter solenoid.

Any thoughts or guidance, please?

need a jet boat mechanic in bay area/central CA

Tue, 03/21/2017 - 19:58
I posted this in DLB, but think it may get more views here; Hey, guys...My neighbors son has bought a jetboat.....It has a Dominator drive and a 454...He has been having problems with it- the heads were cracked(Among other things) and, after running it this past Sunday, he's getting steam out of the breathers and it still ain't running very good...I told him he should have someone with jetboat experience look at it because they could figure things out quick....But I don't know any near by.....San Leandro in the east SF bay area. Any people in the area? He also gets up to Sacto every other weekend...Thanks for any help!

A buddy and I have decided to finally compile some parts to get rid of stuff we no longer need. Random parts that have been piling up. Someone out there can make use of this stuff. All items are as shown and as-is. Part numbers may not be completely accurate. All prices are OBO. Will be updating this original post with more parts.

Teague Platinum XR w/IMCO Lower

Teague Platinum XR w/IMCO Lower

1.36 Gears

Great running condition. Looks like it was refreshed and broken in when I got it. Ran it myself for just about 10 hours with no problem. Gears are too tall for my application so I simply purchased a stock Bravo XR drive. This would be a great drive for someone with bigger power.

$7,200 obo

SE Baron Sprint

Tue, 03/21/2017 - 09:50
There comes a point in time when you realize that you are over your head in a project. Either it is too big, too expensive, or out of your particular skill set. I have reached that point with my Frahs flat-bottom, now I either must pay someone to do the fiberglass repairs (Too expen$ive) or take forever for me to get it done. There is no quitting on this, I have been and still am trying to get it done, it is just a slow ugly process and I know I am out of my element and very much over my head. Racing is still something that I want to do. So if I would like to race an SE boat, I have to take a different route.
The first or second SE race I went to in Lakeland a few years ago a spectator approached me and said he had a V-drive boat that he was considering getting rid of. We talked and I got contact information from him. At the time I was wanting to race my boat and wasn’t interested.
I also delve in drag racing and my motor of choice is the 460 based Big Block Ford. I had a healthy 466 that a truck puller just had to have. That, plus some other parts money that I had been saving allowed me to buy this V-Drive boat.
Awhile back I contacted the boat owner, my brother and I looked the boat over and we felt it was pretty solid so I bought it and brought it back to Tennessee for me to try to get ready to race.
The history on this v-drive boat was that it was once owned by some Daily guy from Florida a long time ago. He also said the guy was an average driver and did ok racing this kind of boats. (Just a joke about Duff. We contacted Hallett and found the boat was originally sold to Del Daily)
The Boat is a 1976 Barron Sprint.
My first steps were to get it ready to drive off the cranksnout, change gears, shaft release, gauges, motor plates, header supports, and then run water and fuel lines. After that I would install a motor and go RACING. Seems easy, but so many little things.
I got the boat done in time to make it to Orange Cup Regattain Lakeland the first weekend in March. At this point I would like to say how well the boat ran but I can’t. I drove down from Tennessee with an untested boat just wanting to renew my license. On Saturday I had a throttle cable come out of the pedal housing right after I pulled out for the 5 minute warm up. It didn’t take long to fix but they were running back to back heats at Lakeland (I hate that) so Saturday was done. Sunday apparently the key for my rudder worked its’ way out and I lost steering after a couple laps. I’ll get it fixed and test before going to Stuart. Attached Thumbnails
