    The new style of engine doesn’t allow for kickstarters. :(

    Carry a jump pack if it’s an issue.

    I can't talk shit anymore until I get my 150 running better. My smaller main jets did deliver yesterday though. Not sure if I'll get any garage time this weekend. Bike still dirty from last weekend's race!

    I think I'd rather have the $5 dollar trophy than cash. I made way more money bicycle racing 40 years ago than what they pay at a local dirt bike race.

    That's still 30x longer than it takes me to adjust my Smart Carb...

    I like the concept of the Smarty pants carb. But it's expensive and my buddy has had issues with his slide freezing on his smart carbed Cross dresser. Evans after installing a heater as per Smart carb. I told him some airplane flying bicycle racer on the internet recommends running HEAT in the gas so will see in the fall if that fixes it.

    This week has been pretty good. Super humid and hot for the most part, or raining. Worked all week. Made some fixes on boat.

    Replaced bad CO detector (beeped every 30 seconds 24/7).
    New forward bilge pump and float switch. Old switch failed and burnt up old pump.
    Fixed A/C. Water inlet was plugged and A/C would shut down on Hi pressure alarm.

    Things I didn't fix.

    New props on starboard drive. Couldn't get in time.
    New generator seawater pump impeller. Couldn't get part in time.
    Port engine seawater pump seal is bad. Need to rebuild or replace pump. Again no parts.
    Starboard seawater pump impeller. Working fine but a maintenance item. No parts.

    Starboard engine gear shift cable is stiff. Aint got time for that.

    End RR.

    I understand. But it's dad's boat. He's had it 16 years and he's having a hard time staying on top of boat things lately. I made him a list of what needs repair so he can get them fixed. I even found him a place that does dockside repairs.

    Just trying to minimize his boat repair pain.
