I'm making a lot of progress with my winter project.

Looks good but man is that a crowded engine compartment to work in.

Candyman, I was told I may not have to rejet the carb. The Qjet doesn't leanout like the Carter does. I'll watch it close.

SteveDavid, yep. That the Super Hawaii.
Don't worry the farming is still getting done. The boat just gets free evenings and weekends. Id have a big problem if we never had winter, like you guys.

GregP, yes it is a little tight, and I'm a big guy. I just don't jump out quick when the phone rings.

Thanks everyone.

You call that a tight engine compartment??? Geez, I'd KILL for that much room!! Ever been in the engine compartment of say, a 24 Baja? 29 Powerquest? 31 Sonic? I have, and I'd say Payton has a LOT of room. Then again, I'm half as big as he is, so I'd fit a lot better. Next time you need to change those outside plugs, let me know!! After all, I'm a certified Sterling plug changer with all the experiece I got at LOTO last summer!!

It's looking awsome though Mark. See you up here in Grand Haven at all this summer??

Looking real good I think if you painted your intakes purple it would bring out the valve covers more.
Good luck
