    you are brave I wont even buy a quart of oil from aqua tech! good luck I would imagine if you are doing the work yourself there shouldn't be a problem but I wouldn't give them my money.

    Dave @ Kitsap Marine is the man to see if ya want to get a bobtail to drop in from Mercruiser. I am very happy with engine, it has more power than the old 5.7. I went this way do to the cost of replacing all the other little things that are mounted on the engine. I have more than 200 Hrs. on this engine and it still purrs like a kitten. I actually get better fuel consumption than old "V" belt engine.

    You don't see many radial arm saws these days.

    For good reason!! I sliding/compound mitre saw and a table saw are way more efficient.

    My dad had a big radial arm saw when I was growing up. It was a good one, but he used to curse the thing. I tried to take a finger off with it one time, ripping a board.

    Back to the repower thread. Sorry.

    Took a couple of days off to spend the requisite amount of "family time" before retreating back into the guy-rage. Finished stipping down the old block and it's ready to be returned for core deposit. Refurbished, painted and installed the damper on the new engine.

    Contacted Les's Radiator Repair (Seabeck) today and will drop off the heat exchanger tomorrow for a flush and pressure test.

    Sand blasted, primed and painted 10 brackets and dip stick tube.

    Bunch of new parts ordered and should start arriving Tuesday. Starter, alternator, all the pressure/temp sensors, etc.

    Cool keep us updated. Everyone likes seeing other people spend money and time on their boats.

    Wire brushed, painted and replaced the pulley on the power sreeing pump today. Merc came out with a service bulletin changing the old style plastic pulley to a larger metal one which also changed the length of the belt I wanted to replace.

    How many hours were on your old motor? Did it blow or just getting old?

    Hey Russ, the hour meter was just over 2200 hours. She still ran, but was making some loud chatter under the hood. I never did see anything obvious after I opened her up. I was kinda expecting to find something loose or broken, but not so.

    Intake gaskets arrived today. After doing a little on-line reading I decided to order new intake manifold bolts so the intake will have to wait another few days.

    P_20160102_195748.jpg

    When I removed the power steering pump, I noticed one of the mounting holes had sheared off. Hard to explain, but one of the tabs had a clean fracture and completely broken off from the rest of the bracket. A little welding, grinding, wire brushing, primer and paint, she's good as new. It's hanging by the bolt hole that was broken off.

    I know it seems like it's slow going, but what you don't see is the scrubbing, wire brushing and painting of every nut, bolt and washer which I didn't buy new. I'm also doing this in my spare time, so only an hour or two per day.

    Hey Blake, yes. As soon as it warms up some, I plan to pull the exhaust Y pipe and the Gimbal out of the transom, refurbish those parts and reinstall. The bilge will get a good scrubbing and a new coat of epoxy paint. Then two new bilge pumps and a new non-collapsable ventilation hose before dropping the motor back in. Of course I'll have to replace everything that even hints as being marginal, wires, cables, etc.

    If anyone happens to have a Quicksilver Alignment Tool (part #91-805475A1) that I could borrow, I'd very much appreciate it. Otherwise I'll pick up a used one off of Ebay and resell it when I'm done.

    That big fuse thing next to your starter gave me quite a bit of a headache. Boat wouldn't turn over the night before Westport Halibut opener. I ended up bypassing it that night and later on at home just removed it. It had corroded and just fell apart.
