Finishing up the install of internal hydraulic steering system. A few minor details to work through there. Change the plugs, replace a bolt in the drive cooler and good to go.

Well, I pulled the winter cover (tarp) off Sunday.
Yesterday she left to the fiberglass guy's shop for a few minor repairs.
When she comes home, I'll start on my to do list. That list is rather long so I won't bore you all.
As is the case every year, I'm shooting to launch the first weekend in May...

Good Thread Gary; I'm sure we'll have lots to talk about in the coming weeks...

We went over to storage the other day to take a peek and make sure she was still well.

I'm going to pull her out in another week or 2 and clean and wax. I need to do a tune up, but I think I'll wait until I run the first tank of gas through so the new plugs don't get washed with the stabilizing agent.

Planning on NGK plugs, some 8.5 MSD wires. Any thoughts on a cap and rotor with brass tips for a 2000 454 mag mpi?

Being computer controlled, is there any sense in checking/setting the timing? What is the stock setting? Pat?

jayhawk,cap and rotor with brass contacts agood idea,all the new caps from merc have them,old ones used aluminum wore out fast made engines lose a little of power,you need to check timing after changing cap-rotor,can be off.You can plug in a timing tool(cheap tool)or better yet plug into scan tool and put it in base mode,you can also check for codes.Rynda makes a nice scan tool that works great for simple checks i think they cost around 400,the timing plug that puts it in base mode 10 bucks or so.

Need a few good days to fit my cabin door project. readjust the valves and do some prop testing. I was able to get a #6 prop adaptor to try some 5 blades. Not warm enough for me until mid May but you never know. When the doors done i will post some picks.

When I replaced my cap, rotor, and wires the last time, I bought Merc stuff mail order. I'll be doing the cap and rotor again this year as I change those every other.
If you like NGK plugs go with the extended tip BPR6FS. I'll probably buy the AC version because they are about 1/2 the $$.
You should check the timing after you change parts. I set mine at 10 BTDC initial. You will need to lock out the cumputer to check and set the timing.
