To be honest, something went wrong with the sponson build. Somewhere from the drawing to the finish product on the setup table, I was almost 5/16 too high on the sponson to get all the numbers right. Dont ask, because I dont know what happen. It was all me thou. So the fix was a wedge at the back to the pad up to recovery pad. It is tripping on that.

Bring the boats down to Eugene next weekend. Jon Constant has a single engine rigger to run against.

Cool! The U of Oregon colors aren't popular in Washington? Call me if you want to remove the geezer wheel. It needs a special puller and technique. The long shaft is for an engine without a geezer wheel. The props are for a mod engine. Check with Mark for a selection of larger props in the gas scale boat.

Geezer is gone. If you back the bolt out some and then add about six #6 washer in under the insert, then tighten it back down it will pop off. Yeah I talked with Mark and Eric already. The boat will be set up so I can do a motor swap to go from G1 to G LTD with 4 bolts and a ball link disconnect.

That's another good way to do it. I have several designs of geezer wheels so I had to think a minute to remember how that one worked. Good luck with all the props.

Hi Mike,

just wanted to ask a question regarding the exhaust headers, are they 100deg headers to angle the pipes back over the tub or the 105deg ones,

I have been inspired buy your build and TJ's, to possibly have a go at building a twin gas rigger as its completely new territory for me, its always nice to try something new

thanks

Shane

Work out your motor situation first. Then build around them. Mark and I dont run pull starters. We flywheel pully start. They would not fit if they had pull starters because of the 8.375 tub width. Carb hit the starter. We also run custom mounts to get that tight. It is easier to go with a standard mount but your tub gets wide. A seaducer mount also could be modified to go less than 5 inch pretty easily. Then floor mount.

Keep us posted with adding to this thread and dont hesitate to ask anything.

thanks Mike, I will do,

I'm planning to go with a 4.5"' width mount for each engine, and take off the pull starters and run the starter pulley,
its very early days, and yes I plan to build the tub around the engine set up, I'll ask plenty of questions as its all new but looking forward to the build
