    Machined alloy flywheel and lightened it o lighter than the steel flex plate

    Do you ever have problems with the engine stalling when you come off the gas in a hurry?. Mine does, ive had to turn the idle up(1200ish). i think its the flex plate being too light compared to a flywheel.?.

    Yes, It could be a number of things and may need a dampener on the return.

    More progress and a long weekend at the workshop. I am happy with the way its turned out. Note the rear fold up seats (still to be covered) that will be perfect for lake fishing and I will add rod holders at the rear as well

    I like the way the signwriting mistake is designed to attract additional interest.

    Looks like the sign people will be busy on monday buying a dictionary and re doing the signs :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Took the whole family up the river tonight and did some fishing with Brooke...she got right into it and was not put off not catching one, Dawn and I were casting for her and she was winding in until she gets used to casting.
    The good thing is getting Holly (6) back into a boat after the other boat that blew up on me, giving her minor burns and me a heart attack!!!
    They really enjoyed the trip down the river in the rear seats.....Looks like Brooke is keen to take up fishing :D
    It is good to be boating with the family again
