    Yes and a v-drive was there also

    Ran OK but like I said I am still trying some other things out. I will be making some changes some time this week.

    No they are not done.

    We ran into someone up there that knew you, he was from saginaw but I do not remember his name.

That boat runs about 130 mph............. the real deal 580 cubes, 52 gears 7500 rpm............... He ain't scared of nuttin'.............. you would not get me in that thing!!!!

    I'm startin' to get the 'old thing down, actually don't like to run the boat much past 85 these days, 90 is when all the world changes, I'm sure I woulden't heal as fast anymore............. Maybe we can hook, up planning on running the boat a few more times yet this year...............
