You can not use Stainless Marine? I know not as cool looking but they do work very well.

3 months That totally sucks. I hope when you finally get them they are right. Summer is way too short to be waiting on parts.

Yea, break in just about broke me, left at 6am saturday to drop it in kemah, I was only 30 mins away from the ramp, stop to fill the tanks, $$$$, then just out of the gas station,(of course it had to happen after I put $300 in the tank, but the center hub on my trailer locked up, I had to unhook, drive back to the plant, get one of our heavy jacks, and take the wheel off the hub, brakes were mangled, a spring got caught on the hub, looked like, so I cleaned it out and got back on the road, got to the water at 5pm?!?! Dropped it in, started up, sounded good, then a shytload of white smoke and milkshake out of the exhaust of the port, I shut it down , swore I was going to sell the boat, and got wasted at the boardwalk. Next morning I started taking things apart, found clean oil under both valve covers, dipstick showed and clean, I got lucky, the oil cooler that I replaced must have let some oil go in the water cooling system. I finished the break in and tightened everything down, so its looking good, except I had a cracked lock screw on one of my lifters, so I have to get that, anyway, your more than welcome to come along when ever you want, hopefully your in sooner than we think though, let me know if you need an extra pair of eyes and hands on your break in, and if you have trailer problems, I have the equipment to lift it up so before AAA, call me.
