Default Step 1 complete.

My winter project has started. I get the joy of rebuilding my engine, or replacing it with a new one. Still looking into it.
I'm afraid this step was the easiest(and cheapest).

6.2 might be a bit big, but I think a diesel conversion would be cool.
I'm pulling a 4.3lx. I think I'll stay on the safe side a keep the same size engine, I wouldn't mind looking into a 305 or 350, but I think I would have to change the outdrive, and maybe change the mounting points.
I'm going to look at a few engines tomorrow, one is a 4.3 vortec.
I'll post updates as I go.

i probably shoulda looked closer at your post...a 6.2 would be way too big for your boat...probably fly a raped ape ...but might end up doing more damage than good...like a permanent smile on your face from the "G" forces....

but in reality a 220hp 4.3mpi vortec would be more than adequate..........

Now is a great time to paint the engine compartment. (Technically this will really be your only opportunity). I'd use vinylester. Plus, now is also a good time to take a look at the shutters in the exhaust, through hulls, seacocks, bilge pump and cleats. You will never have access like you do right now.

it's a great time too to make boating as cheap as it could be.....how........


make on each side a hole above the waterline.........stick on each side a row paddle.....and install a luxury seat also in the motor compartiment.........and row, row, row that boat.....row over the waves......

no kidding.......indeed this is the moment to check everything what you normaly can't reach

good luck and greatz, ed
