I use ethanol gas on a 2 stroke 60HP Yamaha. The orifices in the low speed idle jets are so small that I have to clean them out with 30LB monofilament. I ran ethanol for 5 years up until recently. ...

You can also get a locker which IMO is nearly as good as an open differential 4x4. It's an easy and relatively cheap solution to low traction situations.

I don't tow really heavy but have never had a problem with any boat under 3k pounds behind my 2WD pickup. The only time I ever even slipped a tire was on a lake where a weird wind blew in a ton of...

My opinion is that engineers designed the fuel with all the additives it needs. Unless you're storing it long periods of time I doubt the majority of them accomplish much other than making your...

I honestly feel like having an OEM unit rebuilt by a quality mechanic is a better option than a lot of these companies that rebuild them, like SEI

Yeah it is. I guess if they're out deep I'd plan around the bottom of a big moon low tide. The only problem with that plan is you only get an hour or so of relatively slack water before the current...

You going to swim with the thing or something? What do you expect for 60 bucks? As far as corrosion resistance I think Penn does that pretty well.

Making peak torque and HP above 4k is basically how every truck or SUV was up until they started putting turbos on everything. Find any other naturally aspirated V6 that has torque and HP curves...

For what its worth if you're comparing a new Tacoma to a lot of the half ton trucks of the earlys 2000s it's about the same size and horsepower. I think now that you can get a half ton truck with...

I think you should consider some of the pour in products mentioned in the post above about airboats. Those dudes rivet on their poly on the bottom of their boats so they know how to keep the water...

Previous owner lied that filter hasn't been changed in forever, so long the seal became one with the housing.

The difference in price is so small between the 400 and 800 amp jump boxes that I wouldn't even rack my brain over which to get. You might want to use it on your truck or something at some point too...

What I hate about mono is just how much it stretches. It's awful. It's no wonder the "Bassmaster Hook Set" is so common. On a long cast you really have to blast a fish with a hook set to get it to...

I have a friend who lives in a rural area who commuted nearly 300k miles on an early 2000s Tacoma. He only sold it to get another. I think the only failure he ever had was a power steering pump. I...

As far as reliability you'll have a hard time convincing me that any of the Fords with twin turbos will be as trouble free as any naturally aspirated motor. They make good power and good fuel...

I think you should reconsider braid. I used to feel like you do about braided line but now I won't have it any other way. Anyway, fluorocarbon is nice because it doesn't stretch, but it's very...
