Can't wait to see you guys when you're all finished up. They will be some nice runners for sure.

Weíll see about who gets in first. Iím not rushing anything at this point.

I also need to figure out issues on the Cig. We fixed a bunch of fuel issues, new fuel pump, and had to replace the power steering pump (front seal took a dump). All of the carb linkage binds against fuel lines so thatís got to be sorted out too. And the MSDs wonít fire so not sure what thatís all about (power shorts to ground). Fíing boats. Lol

Yep. These are much older (from when MSD was good) so hoping something is just wired wrong. I told him we should just take the MSDs out but heís adamant about keeping them.

Well that was a pain! The first one anyway.

I was hoping to be able to get one in mostly dressed but that wasnít going to work. In the end everything on the front had to come off. Nothing like having to do a bunch of work twice.

It had been a while since Iíd had everything apart so it took some time to trust the stack of the washers at the transom/transmission. Fortunately, Rookie confirmed that I had it right. It took a lot of trying to get everything lined up but once we figured it out, it went easy. The second engine took all of a half hour to get in bolted up.

Iíll probably have her running by the end of the weekend. Canít wait!

Prep the day before. Virginia Beach has an ordinance that prohibits having trailers in driveways. Had to get it all done before someone complained.


Nice and clean with fresh paint. When itís wet, itís a skating rink. Ask me how I know. Donít mind those blue butt connectors. I have a new weather pack connection ready to replace that.


Getting there!

Closer. The new hard-wall hoses are making it a total ***** to get the raw water pumps back in. I also have some slight exhaust alignment issues with the AFR heads but should be okay.

Nice to have some power and music playing while working.

Once Iím sure that all my fuel fittings are leak-free, Iíll put the port engineís exhaust on.

I also ordered my Innovate DLG-1 wideband. I need to do some gauge moving to fit it.

- fuel gauge will move to hour meter slot.
- hour meters will be in the bilge with their respective engine.
- volt meters will be combined into one with a toggle to check charging (not sure where itís going, maybe depth finder hole and take depth readings from GPS?).
- oil temp gauges will go where the volt meters used to live.


I need to do some paint touch-up. This was taken Sunday night. Iíve gotten a lot farther than whatís here.

Tom for your slight exhaust alignment issues try looking into these, Shields Hump Connectors, they also make a double.
Shields 220S Series, Silicon Hump Hose Connector, Molded Silicone (go2marine.com)
Boat is looking good.

Spensive!! Lol

The good thing is that Iíd only need two. The even banks seem to be close enough. Less tail pipe length.

Thank you sir!
