Default Replacing my engine.

So, about three years ago, we had I think the coldest Winter on record in Ireland. Everything froze, I mean everything. i hadn't had our boat out in about 4 years, it was just parked up in the shed waiting for my kids to grow up a bit so I could get them up a pair of skis, but my brother decided to take his wife and her son for a day trip on the boat. Not thinking about it, we never winterised it that winter and guess what, the block cracked. I bought a new reman engine from a company in the states and began work on replacing it myself, so here are a few pictures of the process.

Corba, are those stock risers, or did you get new ones? They look different.
