Need a paint detailing product

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 17:32
Washed my car Sun only to have a bird take a massive shit on it right after. Went home and washed it off and it left a huge mark, also scratching the paint as i tried to scrub it off. I hit it with some meguires fine cut and a variable speed polisher but it didn't make much difference. Can someone suggest a product to buff this out? I have a variable speed polisher from harbor freight and that's about it. I'd like to avoid rubbing compound if I can use something less abrasive and easier to work with.

Priming motor after long winter storage.

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 17:15
Wanted to get the general consensus if pulling the dizzy and priming the motor would be a good idea or unnecessary work after 8 months of sitting idle. Boat is stored outside, and engine was built new last season. Thanks!

Did your health care premiums go down $2500. as promised?

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 15:51
Obama promised Obamacare would lower premiums $2500. per family. Only a liberal would be suckered into such a lie.

[Question] Fuel Line Help

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 15:01
Was trying to install these fuel lines today and hit a snag. Hoping someone that's run this style of fuel line or have a similiar setup can offer some help on an easy fix. The front set up seems to be a little more forgiving than the rear lines where they're hitting the carb linkage. Didn't have a chance to get a pick of the side I had the issue with but figured this pic will give a good idea. Prob an easy fix with a tubing bender. Just wanted to pick brains before I start trying to modify these. I do have the Enderle dual carb linkage kit that these are bumping into. As of now I went from the outside. Anyone run em from the inside? Had to bend em around linkage or? Attached Thumbnails

fuel pressure gauge and belt drive pump question

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 13:13
What's a good, reliable fuel pressure gauge out there? Want to put one in my distribution block since i'm changing up my fuel system a little.

Also, those of you running a belt drive fuel pump, what do you use to lube the pump when in storage. I've heard a little klotz fuel lube poured into the pump while in storage works well. Just curious what other options work well.

Thanks. :))THumbsUp

Cobra stern drive with shift problem

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 13:06
I have an 1987 OMC Cobra stern drive with a 5.7L that will not shift back to neutral the first time when put in water. After I get it in neutral it will shift fine the rest of the day. Any ideas what might be the problem. Thanks

Sbc 383 stroker help....

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 12:45
Iam building a stroker engine and need advice on head gaskets. Here is what I have

sbc bored to 4.030
scat stroker crank 1pc.rms 3.75 stroke
5.7 h beam rods arp cap screws
probe -10 cc pistons
.00 deck height
64cc chamber aluminum procomp heads that where fully gone through by shop
comp cams extreme marine 270 cam
through the hull exhaust.
affordable injection mpfi with o2 sensors
alpha 1 gen 2 1:47 with a 15 x25 four blade ss prop

my question is what head gaskets to run for good compression and still be able to run pump gas. I did a compression calc. And it's saying it will be like 11:1 with .040 gaskets and I was thinking that that is to much. I just don't know. So I need help to pick the bore and thickness for what iam running. Thx

New Laveycraft 28 EVO

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 12:00
Here are a few pics that were sent to me of the new 28 EVO that Lavey just finished. Keep an eye for it at Desert Storm! It might be the only time you'll ever see the boat before it gets shipped off to its home in Germany. Attached Thumbnails
