Recommended Intake Gaskets

Fri, 02/27/2015 - 12:17
for a Ford 460. It developed a pretty consistent external leak at the front water jacket. Tightened as much as possible but wouldn't go away. Just wondering what's best to replace them with. Or will any old Fel-Pros, Edelbrocks, Mr Gasket do from my local speed shop?

Some details:

Not a hot rod, just cruiser with a little extra HP
Iron heads
Performer RPM manifold
Ports have some work. Measure about 2" W X 2.25" H

It's a jet (obviously) so there's the concern for excess pressure pushing through which did happen when I first bought the boat 9 years ago. Since that incident, I installed a regulator and haven't had the problem again.

From what I've been reading, the metal core gaskets are not best choice for marine applications. That's what I currently have. Victor Reinz jobs that don't match the ports very well.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel , "Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land."

Nearly 75 years ago, (when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said, "Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this IS the Promised Land."

Today, Obama has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

Feeling depressed thinking about Health Care Plans... the economy... the wars... lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc . . . a guy calls a Suicide Hotline. The recording says "press 1 for English"

He was connected to a call center in Pakistan and told them HE felt suicidal. They got excited and asked if he could drive a truck...... !!!! :)sphss

Tea Partier Creates AWESOME Response to “Coexist” Bumper Sticker Crowd

Fri, 02/27/2015 - 08:46
You know those people; the ones riding around with that Coexist bumper sticker on their car, right next to the Obama Biden one.

They’re the same folks who regularly assert that Islam is a “Religion of Peace” and “Can’t we just all get along?”

A tea party supporter has come up with a brilliant video, demonstrating for these naive peaceniks exactly what radical Muslims think about coexisting with the rest of us infidels.

Other Warning Fellow boaters Please Watch Out for this guy

Fri, 02/27/2015 - 06:43
There is a guy by the name of Herbert Hoegemeier pursuing the want ads on the boat sites. I had a want ad for some nice headers for my BBC and he saw my ad called my on the phone and said he had some real nice chrome Bassett headers for 300.00 dollars , sent awesome pictures. Then he said he has a real nice motor mount kit in chrome for BBC for 200.00 ,so I said sure once again awesome pictures and we agreed on 100.00 total shipping from Missouri to Az. He asked me to go to the local Walmart and send him the $600.00 to his Walmart money card . I did so as he asked back on 1/22/15. It took him 3 weeks and all he sent me was some totally crappy rusted out ceramic coated headers, no engine mounts and no response ! His info. is Herbert Hoegemeier Missouri phone number 314 - 358- 5260 Walmart acc. # 11888701495352479 he is bad news and a burn artist. Please spread the word to prevent other fellow boaters from being burned. I don't know what his ID name he uses on the boaters website? Maybe somebody knows this dirt Bag ! Sincerely Wally

Trailer Rims

Thu, 02/26/2015 - 21:46
First off, if this isn't the appropriate section for this, I apologize, feel free to move it.

I am looking to replace these ugly blue rims on my trailer with some chrome. Would anybody be able to identify the bolt pattern from the picture? Unfortunately I am not at home and can't get measurements or the trailer info. I was just on the web window shopping and thought I ask. A friend had mentioned that may have been mobile home axles but I am not real sure about that. On each drum, there is a small stud sticking out to help align the rim which might interfere with another rim.

Any help is appreciated, Thanks.

I just keep on preppin

Thu, 02/26/2015 - 19:46
I can see it coming from a mile off. May not happen in my lifetime but I hope it does so I am around to help my family. The U.S. is being destroyed from within and the door is open for our external enemies to move on us also. OUR country is headed towards the end in my opinion so I just keep on preppin. I am still far off my projected supply and readiness goals but I will get there. It's coming folks and I know you guys see the signs also. I don't try and scare my family but I want to be as prepared as possible for the inevitable.

FCC approves sweeping Internet regulation plan, Obama accused of meddling

Thu, 02/26/2015 - 11:49
Well, we are all familiar with the "Midas Touch".... IMO, Obama has what I call the "Charmin Touch" as everything he touches turns into shit!

FCC approves sweeping Internet regulation plan, Obama accused of meddling | Fox News
Quote: Republican Commissioner Ajit Pai, who delivered some of the most scathing criticism of the plan Thursday, warned the policy represents a "monumental shift" to "government control of the Internet."

Further, he accused the FCC of bending to the will of Obama, who last fall came out in favor of such a sweeping regulatory plan.

Pai said the FCC was reversing course from past positions for one reason: "President Obama told us to do so." And why do you suppose Obama told them to do so? Because his Master Puppeteer paid for it and demanded it...

Soros, Ford Foundations ‘Lavish’ $196 Million to Push Internet Regulations - See more at: Soros, Ford Foundations ‘Lavish’ $196 Million to Push Internet Regulations

Quote: The left calls the debate “net neutrality,” the idea that all data should be transmitted equally by Internet service providers (ISPs). Critics like founder and Chairman Emeritus of MIT's Media Lab Nicholas Negroponte argue that net neutrality “doesn't make sense” because “the truth is, not all bits [of data] are created equal.” The Ford Foundation, which claims to be the second-largest private foundation in the U.S., and Open Society Foundations, founded by far-left billionaire George Soros, have given more than $196 million to pro-net neutrality groups between 2000 and 2013. - See more at: Soros, Ford Foundations ‘Lavish’ $196 Million to Push Internet Regulations This is just what we needed.:duh:

What'd she say???

Thu, 02/26/2015 - 11:36
Hillary Clinton, March 11, 2014

When asked of her accomplishments as Secretary of State, she answered :

"My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I'm glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know… the remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the bigger picture and we didn't do that and I'm proud of that. Very proud. I would say that's a major accomplishment."

Could someone please tell me what she just said? :)sphss
