I've got an 89 SK1700 (skeetr obviously) that I'm struggling a bit with. Before I go into a long winded message... Anyone familiar with them an setting it up?
This thing plows. Badly. 2 guys and full livewells We need to lean forward onto the console for it to roll over and get onto plane. (empty wells it's fine, alone with full wells it's fine, 8" Jackplate it won't get up)
I'm running a Hydrofoil and I'm down to a 19P prop. It has gotten up with a 21, but I get the same top speed. (Somehow... I got it up with a 23P 4 blade once, on a rough day and got 53 out of it, but haven't been able to get up on plane with that since)
I'm running a 150hp Johnson Crossflow. (3.544 bore with Weisco Pistons, 1 5/16 carbs, electric fuel pump that is 73gph at 4-7psi, Solid core plug wires, 4 degrees timing at idle 26 at WOT, newer timer base, 35amp stator, Boysen reeds. Spark jumps 9/16 gap and at 3000rpm at the ramp in gear all 6 cylinders will zap the HE!! out of you even with insulated pliars, Compression 105 on all 6... i've been through a few things on this motor)
