After looking at a bunch of options, I decided to have the Short Block in the Boat sleeved and rebuild by a local eng builder for $1000.

Pulled the old block out last weekend and just dropped it off, Includes, Dip, bored and honed, new Pistons, New Cam and lifters, complete gasket kit. If the Crank needs turned, he will do that as well. Since the old eng only had 100 hrs on it I will Clean and inspect the heads, intake, Carb and all the accy and Install them myself.... I gotta have some fun... and It saves me a bunch of $$$$.

Due to my schedule this month with the US Open 9Ball Championships, I won't be able to pick up the eng till the 29 Oct, Hope to install and hookup everything Friday and Saturday, Sea Trials are scheduled for Sunday 4 Nov.

Todd

ARe you sure it's the shop and not problems with delivery? Aside from recent weahter issues, fuel is expensive and a lot of companies are trying to get as much freight moving per mile as they can. It might be a logistical issue out of the shops control.

two wks ago he said it was done. But I was away and wouldn't be back for 10 days, so he gives me the "I only hold onto it for 30 days" lecture.... Sooooo Then I go to pick it up and he said it was not done, but would be ready friday... well he bored it out too much and had to order a over sized sleeve. Then it was supposed to be ready last night. I am still waiting...... I am Not a Happy Camper(Boater)....

Ok so I'm sure this will start a back lash but here is my point, the only difference between (some) automotive head gaskets and marine ones are the liner seal rings, auto uses steel, marine sometime uses stainless, more of an issue on raw water cooled however my previous 2 raw water cooled boats I have replaced the marine one for automotive due to cost and the thought that if water is getting to the seal I don't see stainless helping "much" more water should not contact that close to the cylinder
