    Default Out With The Old In With The New

    Taking the old engine out in preparation for a new one.

    First order of business borrow a buddies shop and move any v-drives that might be in the way.

    Put the boat in the empty stall and listen to them tell us to hurry and shut the door so no one sees a jet boat in here.

    The old bullet was good to us for 2 seasons. One in the Dragstar and one in the Daytona. Only issues were a couple of poly locks and a couple of starters.

    Only takes a few minutes to get it out. And the empty hole waiting for the new beast.

    It will be a while before the new one is done. But can't put winter projects off until spring.

    Ron,

    Looks like your on a roll. This week I started on the new mounts, rails, brackets, etc. for the Eliminator. I made pretty good progress, but am a bit slow. I spent a day and a half on three freaking brackets Then the pace picked up a little.

    In my shop.... I would have to pull the jetboats and dragsters out and quickly put the v-drive in before anyone saw it

    Gear

    Cool looking car collection in the background!!!

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.
