    What Carb and Ignition??

    Did you pick exhaust risers?

    If your travels bring you to the north east, gotta stop by...

    Fun project
    The carb is an AFB 750.

    For now we're using the stock ignition and risers (They were only used about 6 times on the last motor). If I keep it and don't get a 22 then I'll replace the risers with stainless. Not sure what kind yet as I'm moving one step at a time. Unfortunately I've had some other stuff to deal with.

    On the other front the garage addition is moving along. My wife has decided it has to be a man cave too, not at all a bad thing but that's taken the price tag to about double what I had planned. So the boat and car will be in an airconditioned garage when everything is buttoned up. Wet bar and TV as well and I nice comfy chair. I expect she'll have a bed out there for me before long.

    It's alive!

    Many thank to Chris Fitch and brother Kerrington for getting the new motor together. So far they have about 4 hours of running time on the stand. Should be in the boat soon.

    Good job. Sounds good and even has a slight lope.

    It's been slow progress for sure but I've got a couple other things going on at the same time, including a difficult building inspector that is holding up my garage addition. Hope to have the new motor in the boat next week and a first run in. I need to blow off a little steam and getting back on the water could help me with the other things that I'm working on.

    Yes, there's a mild cam from GM performance that gives it that bit of a lumpy sound. I love that!

    Motor is in!

    The motor is back in the boat. Just haven't had time for an update in a while. It's been hot and stormy so I haven't had it out yet. I did hit 66 mph on GPS with a REV4 24 and 68 with a Mirage 23 labbed to a 24. We used GM Performance 9.5:1 pistons, GM Performance cam 218-228 profile and .525 lift on a LSA motor. I haven't had a chance to really run it yet and we're still breaking in in. Mid-range punch is great. So far I'm really happy with everything about it. We'll try some more props when we have time. Here's a video that Chris made of it sitting at the doc at sunset.

    Thanks Carl! I'm very pleased with it so far. The new garage is just about done and it will be going in there this weekend. I hope to get out on it for a while either Saturday or Sunday and put some time on the new motor. We have a few trips planned for this fall. Chris Fitch wants to run from Tampa Bay to Marco Island if I can get away long enough to do that. We'd take my 18, his brother's 22C and his Warlock. Also have a couple other trips to do too. I'm looking forward to the fall.

    That's all I got out of your post.

    Bet you're looking forward to being able to store it indoors. Garage: the most important room of the house.



    Just kidding Chip. Glad you're happy with the new motor.

    Thanks for the laugh! I do tend to run on from time to time.
