Talking Hate to admit it .......

But the whole neighborhood knows anyway.....so here it goes.

Helped a buddy pull both motors from the 32 - got them back, dressed them out, pulled them off the stands to put on the bellhousings, yada yada yada......

Install Port motor - had damn near everything rigged, mounts tight, all lined up - no scatter shield on the bellhousing. damn. ok - de rig, pick it back up, install scatter shield. All is well - for now.

Go back to riggin the stbd motor - pull off stand, install flywheel and coupler - oh $hit - why are there two couplers in that box? you guessed it - the port motor is all back in with scatter shield but no coupler - have another beer. Pull port motor - again - install coupler and scatter shield and move on.

There's a reason I'm not fond of "helpers" - they get in a hurry wanting to help and get ya distracted - but hey - the beer was free and all was well after we got all the peices where they belong!!!!

HE pulled an engine to "POLISH" it. He got to the shop and we went to pick it up with the fork lift when he realized the he was missing the motor mounts.

Forgot to tighten an oil pump mount bolt on a brand new 540. Pressure was fine at the shop and for the first 10 minutes of easy running. First big pull was enough to vibrate loose the finger-tightened bolt. Took mere seconds to smoke the mains & rods. Got lucky that it didn't spin a main and hurt the block. Expensive lesson.

We took a trip on Phantom Chaos' Sunseeker a couple years ago, and he forgot his shoes on the dock. This was the best he could do on short notice when we got to the restaurant (they came from a discount store next to the restaurant):

I forgot my shoes on the dock about 2 weekends ago. We stopped at a restaurant to go in and eat, and that's when I realized I had no shoes. Went in anyway in my socks. Don't think anyone even noticed but my wife.
