One of the mistakes we made, unbolting the engines from the crates and we "hit" one of the cool fuel lines, basically a fuel line that has a pressed plastic fitting inside the rubber line that snapped..... Called everywhere locally and some of the Shops we called didnt even have the part number in there systems.... Ran home and started calling around, at least 10 shops including the big ones on here and nothing. I called Don Carter @ Offshore Performance in Ft. Myers at 4:55PM and not only did he have it he ran down to the Fed Ex office and overnighted it to me, 10:30 the next morning and the part arrived.... That would have put the brakes on our completion time and wouldnt of been able to get part until today...

Congrats, When I saw the engine issues you had I started to call you and tell you I'll swap boats with you....but not engines. Wouldn't that 400 run well with my "500's" in it!!!

Great job, got 'er done quick!

How's it runnin' vs. the 502s getting better performance? Out of the hole quicker? Slower? Top end, mid-range?? Inquiring minds want to know.

Pat, very happy to hear that things worked out for you. Be sure to keep in touch about that 'other subject' we talked about.

After post 11, I wonder about what new thread may "pop up" in the next week or so.
