    Some will say I'm going backwards. Putting a FORD mill and got rid of the bowtie. It'll pay off when it's done!....I hope.

    Tim-Glad to hear the motor is okay from the TP deal. See you out in the water @ Memorial.

    New rods, bearings, pistons. Heads re worked, all aluminum re polished, new false bottom, rail kit, intake re set, intake cut for a shoe, ride plate, bottom work, and quite possibly pump work.... its been a few winters worth of upgrades but getting closer... if I'm lucky maybe she'll float and move under her own power this summer.

    Tom and Josh reset intake, cut for and installed shoe and plate.
    They also went through the pump and checked it out. (It was a new JG swap with diverter and droop)
    Also converted to braided diverter lines.

    Last year was entire new short block all forged and internally balanced BBC, with new Hyd. roller. Freshened up the Brodix heads then also.
    But the pump and intake troubles I had (Many of you probably saw Tom's thread on it) wrecked the entire summer, 4 hours of boat time, 3 of them bad!
    So this summer will be like a whole new boat.
    FINALLY installing my trim indicator gauge.

    Also have all the parts now for complete new fuel system for the Hydro, so after Miller is done, I'll tackle the labor end of the Red boat.

    PS- Hey Tom @ JBP, Deb said the transom seal nut dealio showed up last Saturday, Thanks again!
