Hey Jay,
Do you get matching pink and lavander streamers to hang off your steering wheel with those motors?

J/K Dude! I'm really happy for you man, those engines look sharp and I'll bet you're totally psyched. Good luck!

Yo Nick, Whats up dude
Yeah HOOKER BARBIE PINK!!!!!!
(the camera did not have a flash so engines look a bit different than they actually are)
Yeah im pumped
Going to pick them up on Friday and take them to my friends work, then tow boat up there Saturday morning, hike them in with the Fork Lift, and start the fun task of hooking everything back up
I removed all silent choice crap from the boat, and alot of other BS things, redid the bilge and re-rigged alot of the wiring and venting.
(and painted some stuff that pink color to tie in the engines back there)

So now it is getting close to the 9th inning, score is tied, bases loaded, its time for the big one!!!!!!!!

Default gap or shadow?

Is that a gap or shadow on the left side of the head where it mates to the block? The right side looks tight.

Hey Sling
That is the deck of the block where the head does not quite sit out as far as the block extends.
All BBC engines have that but since this engine is painted a weird color, it shows more
there is no gap in there though
Oh man I cant wait to dump these in
Maybe Ill be a threat to some of the boats in a poker run this year MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
(okay I cant get ahead of myself here)

Unfortunately I cant take time off right now.
With the wedding and honeymoon and end of summer im headed to Ocean City Maryland so that is it.
I have to sit here workin all week and just keep in my head that they will be installed on Saturday
But now my friend with the forklift might not be able to help me on Saturday so im poking around for Plan B right now.
Anyone have a fork lift or tow truck with a boom or something ???

Chain fall, wood from home depot if you have to. I do mine with a beam and chain fall all the time. Not as easy as some of the other options but it does work well

Hey Jon, no way dude
Anything I suspended them from would fall apart I know it
these things are freaking HEAVY and since the boat sits about 6'6" off the ground so you got to hike engines up about 8 feet in the air
no way dude no way
Ill get the fork lift
LOL

Mopower, it took about 2 weeks to tear them apart, clean them machine them, clean em again and again and again
do all the paint work and assembly
