Hi Shawn. Well, sort of I do. If you look closely you'll see a 2x4 holding up the hatch. I have yet to hook up the hatch actuator/cylinder. That will be one of the last things I do.

Tonight we were able to get the drive-lines all bolted together, starter/battery cables connected and all electrical stuff is now connected except for a couple of ground wires/cables, power steering pump is mounted.

Carbs still need to be mounted, throttle cables, fuel lines, oil lines to the thermofilters, water lines, etc.....we're still checking equipment.

I'll be making a call today to see if the push rods are done and on their way.. (Holding my breath!). That will be the stopper, if they are not done and delivered. Cant put the headers on till the push rods go in..

Steve (best boiler man on the planet),
I know what you mean.. business first!! And thanks again for keeping me warm this winter!!

Ok.. it is late at nite.. had a good day..so to speak..

Eye Dr appointment 9am.. left there at 11am.. with chemicals in my eyes so everything was blurryyyyyyyyyy... Worked on boat waiting on push rods.. Started tearing down a couple of broken drives Push rods made it at 2:30 pm.. Set lash and buttoned up the motor.. added exhausts.. etc.. Fired or tried to fire at 9pm... found after much busy trouble shooting that I fried my coil while setting up the valve lash.. Rolled the motor over without pulling the kill cord.. Opps..
Tossed in an old coil.. and wham.. that thing sound nice without the mufflers!!!!!!!

So the engine is done.. well need to tune the EFI.. Need to head to Lane Auto and get a new coil.. Find a bank to rob to get gas money..
And then find where to get the annual GH launch permit.. Then I will hit the water and do the tuning.. etc..

So I am close.. very ... waiting for sunlight..

How's everyone else doing??

I will try to get up that way if all goes well Dave!! I may need some of those drugs you have.. I am one sore old man.. let me tell you.

Best excersize I get is working on the boat. Up the ladder, down the ladder.. up.. down..

Good nite. it is late..

Dick

waaa, waaa. you want some cheese with that whine?
Dick, we'll have an ice-cold beverage waiting for you when you get there.
Fred, I'll be there even if I have to carry the pain meds with me. Are you going to be around this weekend? If so, I might ask if you can cut the hole in my panel for my new Raymarine C120 display, just like Dave and Mel have on their Sea Ray.

Wanna know why KAAMA hires people to work on his stuff? BECAUSE HE CAN!!!!!!!!!!!
Dyno, hope it all comes together today. You'll be on the water in time for a couple of the Muskegon Summer Celebration concerts. I'm looking forward to running to White Lake for a burger at the tavern next weekend. Fred or Waterfoul may have to drive mine though.
Powerquest and Great Lakes Marina are sponsoring a PQ regatta July 23-24, which is also the weekend of the Muskegon Air Show. The Blue Angels will be there and as you may remember, the Angels fly right over the marina on their inbound runs during their routine.

Dave, I believe we (Vickie and I) will be in Muskegon (well, Twin Lakes anyway) next weekend. If you don't mind both of us tagging along, we might be able to work out something so you can get your boat out on the lake. I'd love to drive you around!!

Well it is late again.... Dave, I wasnt whining.. just tellin the folks how much work it is to get on the water around here..

Well I was out and it ran.. and I liked it.. !!! So far only a minor oil leak to contend with.. And yes I made it to Muskegon.. but everyone went to Dockers and thats were I ended up..

Still tuning EFI.. well it tunes itself.. and maybe tomorrow I can see what it will do..

Dick

PS.. how's everyone doing? Running yet?
