    New guy, dumb question?

    Any idea what drive ratio you have? My Baja 7.4 Bravo 1 with a 1.50 drive ratio ran a 21p 3 blade stainless Mirage prop. 55.1 mph at 4800.

    Towing Survey/Question

    I'm not sold on all these 7,9,10 speed automatics. Constant shifting. I like the old shift and pull then shift and pull. #%^$&%$ EPA with all these fuel mileage requirements. I guess it keeps the planetary gear builders in business.

    Your pretty much topped out now. Want more speed add more horsepower or get a faster boat. Props won't help you now.

    Here we go again! Boat off trailer!

    I just figured the boat didn't know what to do at a traffic signal.
  10. Floating a valve refers to when the frequency of the valve overcomes the spring pressure and the valve stays open letting some compression out before it can reseat usually causing a misfire in that cylinder.Usually caused by weak springs and/or large cam profiles and steep lift angles. It can usually be rectified by better springs. Excessive floating can lead to a broken valve. Anytime there is interference contact within a cylinder it usually leads to catastrophic engine failure. By running a motor with a load on it keeps the mated surfaces more in contact with each other and proper oil clearances. No load at high rpm can cause oscillating vibrations throughout the rotating assembly. Not the best thing for it.

    Help identifying reservoir

    Trim pump res. If the drive is up at all the fluid will go down. Recheck with drive bottomed out.

    Bravo 3, replace 26P with 28P prop?

    Go on eBay or Craigslist and get the correct prop
