waterbug recap
« on: October 06, 2019, 03:08:42 PM »
I have been putting up Pics but not much explanations what I'm doing.
Here is a recap ,kinda. I have been looking in to a supercharge ,"Cheep"
Not to boost all the time but to get things going then turn it off.
This is something I'm looking at , I would prefer electric so it does not pull on the motor all the time.

$200 bucks for %30 increase ??? 18 more Hp 78 in all at full potential and sea level.
Then a simple cam maybe another 20% New lifter arms and springs. Pushing 90 hp Humm.
Under $400.
Something to look at maybe?
I got the motor moved back 7" and pointed up 2". Changed the gear ratio from 1 to 1.1 to 1 to 1.6 hope to turn a bigger pitch.
Moved the cage and made it so I can tip it down, so I can get it in under my boat port on the trailer. Put in a BUNCH of foam covered the back 1/4 of the boat where most the foam is. covered the center of the boat to the nose, made two storage compartments and filled the rest with foam. Put all the wiring in looms and tied it all down. Going to put a cill switch on the handlebars still, need to wire in the GPS and phone port. Working on the rudders they have to come off to tip the cage, going to go to chain and sprocket instead of drum and cable to turn them. It will stay with the boat when the rudders ore down.
Another year should do it...........
