Yea, good time to replace all the questionable bits while you have the space to get to them.

Nope 5.7LX 4bbl with a B2, 260 HP.

I'd kill to have that much space to work around mine!

The old engine looks so clean, Mike, a shame it had to be replaced.

I could have put a crank kit into it but I figured it's 19 years of brackage water use so go all the way. I ordered a partial closed cooling kit as well.

Oh fine, rub it in. But I do feel better now that I see your drive trim reservoir is just a little harder to get to than mine. Not that it matters, I've never had to add any fluid to it.

Great opportunity to tidy up the bilge. When is the engine scheduled to go back in?

Unfortunately, that is what my engine compartment looks like right now.

Just not nearly as clean.
