    Default "Many of these engine HP ratin

    "Many of these engine HP ratings are rated at various rpm. This is of course a misnomer for us marine guys...... we don't run our cruiser engines at 5,200 rpm.
    Example: the 315 hp 5.7L Vortec is rated at either 5,100 or 5,200 rpm.... duh!

    Realistically, the hp is likely closer to 260.

    What are your reasons for the question? Just curious!"

    "Brain, The 570 is still in the AQ series engine/drive category. 570 meaning 5.7L.
    It should be a successor to the 260 hp enigne. Maybe you could find more info doing a search using "volvo 570A 868273 4100124585".

    FYI: We don't choose a prop via horse power alone...... We choose a propller by either a suggestion by the OEM, or we perform a WOT RPM test and by trying a series of propellers until we reach the desired WOT RPM.

    See your OEM specs for this WOT RPM!
    I'd not recommend deviating from this if you want longevity from this engine..... cruiser or rocker boat.... it doesn't matter!

    "OK
    {FYI: We don't choose a prop via horse power alone}
    I never said you do! I said it would help.
    (we perform a WOT RPM test and by trying a series of propellers until we reach the desired WOT RPM.} DA Yes each HP has a different WOT!
    HOW do I do this if I cant determine WOT RPM for my motor?
    The black box, rev limiter was missing when I got it. I have found several rpm limiters 3800 4500 5200
    all vary with HP witch is IT?
    Please stop talking down to me.
    Tanks Brian
    PS the year any help with that?
    Ps I did the search thing."

    "Brian, There you have it on a Silver plate.... little work, little effort.
    Thank you El P! That was very generous of you!

    Brain, This is a forum where many people come for advice as a result of simply not knowing this themselves..... or from not having the skills to do this and that themselves!
    Those of us, like El P and many others, respond doing so with little reward, other than the satisfaction of having helped someone.
    All is being offered to these people on a complimentary basis.
    Most are, at the very least, appreciative and seldom feel like they are being talked "Down" to (as you put it).

    My apologies to you if you thought that my response was in any way condescending. I do not see it that way, nor was it my intent.

    In all fairness to Ricardo's comment about WOT... a surprising number of folks who post on this forum don't know that.

    "Brian, no, the nick just reflects my favourite hobby (in Spanish, El Pescador = The Fisherman).

    You are welcome. I hope you found the link to the 570A owner's manual; if not, this one should work.

    Brian, if I may I would like to state with due respect that I do not see how/where Ricardo has insulted or attacked you. In my view, he has tried to help you and frankly speaking I have raised my eyebrows when reading your responses. I assume that you may not have liked some of the wording of Ricardo's posts, but I think you should keep in mind that e-mail or message boards are quite different than face to face conversations, and many statements that are not intended to be rude or confrontational could be seen as such. If you felt insulted, perhaps asking politely Ricardo for clarification either at the board or privately by e-mail would have been a better approach (just my opinion).

    Anyway, I believe you did not come to this board looking for a fight, but rather looking for some information. I'm glad you found it and if you have any further questions, please just feel free to post."

    Default "When we participate on a foru

    "When we participate on a forum, it becomes "Interactive"! Key strokes and written words may not be sufficient to get the point across.
    So I am adding a little clarification regarding my earlier comment;
    "Example: the 315 hp 5.7L Vortec is rated at either 5,100 or 5,200 rpm.... duh!"
    The &#34;Duh&#34; was to be a general &#34;duh&#34; and was actually aimed at the likes of GM, and other engine marinizers, who rate and advertise these marine engines <u>at an RPM where we do not run them.</u>

    My &#34;Duh&#34; was aimed at this group for doing such a disservice for marine use..... and was certainly not aimed at the OP &#40;original poster&#41;........ and was also in hopes of pointing this out to all of us!
    Remember, not just those involved in a particular thread may be reading it for the information. Lots of on-lookers read these as well! When I respond to a thread, I try to do so in a way that helps on-lookers also.

    BTW, in my opinion an FYI is a polite gesture for your information. Meaning that; &#34;you may or may not know this, but ___________ &#34; and so on.
    It should be taken as an informational lead-in, not necessarily a lead-in for a derogatory statement.

    Fair nuff?
