Try a hardware store, like Ace. They will be in the hardware aisle where they keep the nuts and bolts. Any engine service place should have them as well, Like your local John Deere dealer.

Should only be a couple of bucks to buy too.

As an update to this thread: This customer hit 28mph with just him in the boat. :D

8" prop, torque tube, intake, carb re-jet, and some other stuff he wont tell me about lol! Boat is pretty light when he takes out all of the hunting gear.

I want to do some work on the Vanguard, but the old lady won't let me after all the problems with the 440.

I haven't found any jets for it yet. I know what I want to do for the exhaust, just gotta have Robertson's make the pipes. I don't believe there is an inexpensive intake for it, but I can get a K&N for the stock airbox. We will see.

That muffler is about $400 by itself. That carb set up is close to $1000 by the time its said and done.
