Thanks to all my fellow OSO boaters...I did get #[email protected]% by him, but I will get even; I have a very good contact in the business who happens to be the US Postal inspector in NJ. Did anyone ever hear of "Mail Fraud" a very inditable Federal Offense. Plus I have some good friends in both the FBI & Secret Service. Not high on their priority list, but when they are in the neighborhood I would not want those guys "knocking on my door".

I purchased my motors from Hawk last summer. Kevin had no part in assembling them (as far as I know). I took my motors back down to Hawk Power for Todd to add a few non-essential accessories like flywheels, belts, hoses and exhaust headers.


I met his staff, Kevin was never mentioned so he apparently bought the recipe, cast valve covers and stickers.

My motors were dyno'ed locally.....

I was told the motors would probably make 625 Hp on the dyno as the race heads few fully flowed. After the dyno recorded a best of 545 Hp we yanked the heads, replaced the worn valve guides, installed new exhaust valves and did a real port job. The motors now make 575 Hp @ 5400 rpm.

No I did not do any asembly's ever or him, The work that I preformed for Todd was finish honing the new Merlin or Dart blocks to a platue finish, and balancing the rotating assembly's, From July 2003 on until he shut down. In fact if you got a engine from him you should have got a print out of the bobweight's and the balance sheets before & after to prove if I did bal. work!!! No I did not purchase any of the recipes, Have my own that I think will work better, I did recieve oilpans,valve covers,hose,etc.... No Decals

My goal is to restore the Hawk Marine Power name to its orignal purpose. High quality durable performance marine engines. Had a long talk with one of the original owners,(nice guy) last night. He said he would like to help. I always welcome input, My motto: Never to old or smart to learn something new

Kevin,

Just wanted to share what I knew so you would have an opportunity to set the record straight. Thanks!

I don't know if you did my motors - I assume so. I did not get the balance sheets. My local shop said the bottom end looked real good - so it must have been you

Out of curiousity, how many blocks did you do for Todd?

Will you have an emblem available to replace the cheap sticker on top of the intake manifold?

Greg
