I worked 4 hours raking and preparing to burn the ski lake with my 15 year old. My son was a pretty good hand today.

Just need to finish the carpeting on the bunks.
what kind of MCOCD do you think you have.. - one of your belt water pump pulley blots doesn't match..

I never wished to be able to rake as much as I do this year. The raking stuff is covered with SNOW.

Had a few hours yesterday afternoon and continured sanding down the slats for the swim platform...PO wasn't joking when he said he kept the appearance up by varnishing it every year

So I have about 5 of the 7 slats I removed all sanded down and got the varnish off...gonna keep working at it this week...hopefully get it done before we get the boat on the water.


One thing I was thinking that I do need to get is a new K&N air filter. I was looking on line and really did not find an exact replacement. Question I have is...is the air filter a marine-specific one or just a plain old K&N filter that will fit the 94 LT1 with the motor box still closing?


Here is what it looks like...

I bet it's as old as the audiovox stereo that came with the boat!

Scroll down to the "Clamp-ons" , across from "oval" you will find 3 LT-1 models depending on whether you have vent hoses or not.

Thanks!


So here are 2 that I am looking at. The first one 59-5000 is the cone filter that I currenlty have. The second 59-5020 is the newer filter that is more oval and looks better. Besides making sure the motor box will close correctly, anyone see any issues with going with the oval (59-5020) filter?

Type Flange Length Width Height Notes Part #
Oval 2.93"x4.75" 6.5" 4.75" 5.62" GM TPI 59-5000
Oval 2.93"x4.75" 8.62" 4.5" 3.18" GM LT-1 No Vent 59-5020
