got 9 hours on it ...had to yank the port exhaust a couple times battleing an oil leak turned out to be the threads on the flare adapter fitting on the remote oil adpt on the block .....it's fixxed now ......oil temp wasn't up to 212 on the last outing but today I ran it a little harder ....hit 220....perfect...she's already had an oil change ... am i anal or what ?? Looks like it will top out around 65-70 speedo is original 1974 so hard to say where it is...I need to get a new handheld gps..

ended up spinning a 14 x 26 it takes me right to 5000 with a little trim left...i suppose this will be the prop i stick with ...

Today was a great afternoon on the St Johns River ....ran a while stopped by a friends house...bs'd for a while had some lunch ...and ran back down the river....

IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT...

Mark, what brand prop are you running? If you are spinning a 26 with low slip, you are doing pretty good. (Exceptionally well)

Hey Kent....are you in the water yet..??? it is a Volvo prop....I have a 14 x24 whch i haven't tried yet ...this prop seems to blow out with not much trim...but really haven't run it WOT yet...not sure if the blow -out would be expected at any particular trim setting .....seems like i could trim up further with the previous set-up...but has been a yr since being in the water to....the mind is a terrible thing...and my trim indicator isn't set right yet either....that;s tomm nights job....
