i found someone to turn the 502 flywheel so i can put the ring gear on the backside for the merc bellhousings and trs. so i pulled off the ring gears and will drop them off next week. he said $40 each i thought that was good, then ill sell the 454 flywheels.

dropped off the flywheels mon after work and he called me tuesday about 1pm and said they were done so i picked them up and heated up the ring gear and it fell on and cooled and its perfect fit and he only charged me $40. so im going to have him make my plate for the new steering

RedFountain420,

You are only down the road a piece from me. If you need a hand, let me know (One Fountain guy to another).
You didn't buy that boat from the U.S. Marshalls by any chance?

If you need a hand, P.M. me and I'l send you my number.
Bryan
