SF is mid lift 90* rocker pivot/ valve stem. This does not necessarily put rocker tip on the center of the valve.

I was taught the center of tip, smallest pattern years ago.

I see the validity of both methods.
Discuss away.

I wish Lois Lerner played football .....

What if Brady simply pleaded the fifth?????????

Commissioner Roger Goodell, said new information about the destruction of Brady's cell phone showed the four-time Super Bowl champion "sought to hide evidence of his own participation in the underlying scheme to alter the footballs."

This just goes to show how common sense is expected and acceptable when confronting the woes of our "sports heroes", but in the case of the IRS, when the IRS commissioner John Koskinen "sought to hide evidence" via the destruction of emails related to the IRS & Lois Lerner's investigations, the smug bastard simply smirks as he knows he can get away with ANYTHING!

As he is the person at the top of the IRS, and on numerous occasions evidence was discovered and then destroyed "under his watch", can anyone tell me why John Koskinen in not held personally responsible and jailed for contempt of Congress? This ALL happened under his watch, but yet he is not held responsible.....
And YES, this bastard can be impeached!!!! Good Job Senators!!!! :))ThumbsDwn

Conclusion: The NFL is more interested in finding the truth and has demonstrated more integrity than our Government.

Indoctrination into the O/B Church

Tue, 07/28/2015 - 10:53
After years of other propulsion types (direct drive, jet, I/O), I recently converted to the O/B church. More specifically with the acquisition of a 2003 Cougar 22MTR. I purchased the boat less the previous 300X engine with the intentions of re-powering it with a brand new 300XS.

Quite a journey to get it home as the seller was located up in Canada. We ended up meeting in at the Montana/Canadian boarder for its long trip home.

First, I dropped the boat/trailer off at Bear Trailersports in SoCal where they replaced the entire braking system from the backing plate, new bearings, seals, bearing buddies, and tires. They also replaced the rotting out bunks and moved the boat up on the trailer 5 inches. It only had about 75lb of tongue weight with the motor installed. Their work and service is truly first rate and recommend them highly.

Then, I engaged Kevin at KMG boats to rig the 300XS (including retaining the existing smartcraft system) and in addition helped me with a lengthy list of other items. This included filling and re-gelling the previous 300X rigging holes, repairing gel in a few other areas, installing an additional battery, re-wiring the power cables, installing a new fuel/water seperator, new bimini and custom cover. The quality, service, turnaound provided by KMG exceeded all of my expectations. Kevin and crew are awesome.

Got the boat on the water and she fired right up. I did notice the volt meter only read about 12V and declined to 11V in a few hours of run time. After much research, I found Gill and Corina Fallon at Fallon Marine in Havasu City, Az. They quickly attacked the problem and determined the Alternator/Voltage Regulator was faulty from the factory. They arranged expedited overnight deliver from Mercury and handled this as a warranty claim. The parts arrived at 10:30am and they completed the work by 12pm! I was back on the water in less than 24 hours and able to put some break in hours on the engine! Gill is a master level merc technicion and my boat will be going there for engine service from now on. Incredible capabilities, service levels, etc.

The boat came with: full seastar pro hyd. steering to the helm, Cougar's setback assembly, Smartcraft system, mechanical trim indicator, Bob's Hyd. jack plate with wand style control at the helm. The 300XS was ordered with a 20" mid, SportMaster lower, and 1.62X gears. Prop is a Merc Pro-Finish Bravo XS 26P (4 vent holes). This seemed to be a good overall prop as holeshot is strong, mid range accel is great, and after about 5 hours on the motor I was seeing a little over 6K rpm on short WOT burst.
