    Default Got the heads off

    Well I got the heads off. Found 1 broken valve head. It wedged into the seat and gouged the piston up. If it dosent sell....the hull..might consider doing a rebuild job. Any recommendation for a machine shop here in mich???? Leaning towards a BBC low cr/blower. Never had a blower motor....thinking now is the time.

    I might have to find a engine puller sooner than I thought. Lol. Just a few calls on it recently.... Figured nobody was interested in it. Let me know.

    Thanks.....I think this is doable on a decent budget. Block is a four bolt....#14015445.....heads#781's....with lots of work. If this hull doesnt sell soon.....the rest of the motor will be coming out soon. Then the steering cable can be repaired more easily while motor build starts. Funny...now getting into it late into the season.....not working did play a part into it though. Thanks for the digits. Dewey
