Hi Anna!

I hung out with Greek Lightning for a little while at Smoke on the Water. He had the 1075 package in his new 42x. He loves them. The idle great, start easily, and Merc is/was offering a rebuild after 60-70 hours (I think).

Cigarette pulled theirs at 80-90 hours from American Muscle (they were still running fine). Merc tore them down and found only a small amount of wear to the engine. This info came from Bud.

Heres a shot of Greek Lightnings package.

I know American Muscle ran right on past us in a BIG hurry at Smoke. Sounded good too.

BBC,
I thought you were boatless and running in John's OL, which has new Sterlings? What are you looking to put the 1075's in? Or am I just confused?? Have you guys heard from Gregg recently?? Seems to have fallen off the earth....
