Always keep in mind, the weakest and most expensive part of an Amphicar is the transmission.
You shouldn't overload it with power and torque.

Jack - i know you upgraded to twin carb on your blue car - is it a 1147? -- any noticeable improvement in power?
It seems to have more zip going through the gears but hill climbing ability is the same. Need to take it for a ride soon and decide if Ol Red needs the same upgrade. Right now enjoying our new backyard and the Florida warmth. Aren’t there some Amphicars around here ?image.jpg
