Latest update involves mostly riser mounting and hose replacement. Using all new hose clamps, gaskets and bolts along the way. Love those Trident hoses! I've actually got a lot
leftover hose that I will probably be posting in the classifieds if anyone is thinking about doing the same.
Here was the top down view before.
Port side manifold & riser before.
From the front.
Another issue I ran into was that the left panel containing the hour gauge and ignition switch had screws that wouldn't tighten up. Seems to be that the nuts in the back were lost, and the previous owner used wood screws. There is zero room to work back there so I came up with an alternative using drywall anchors. It works pretty well with these black #6 screws.
Push them into the existing holes...
...and fasten the screws. The previous owner told me that he thought the kill switch was an "option". I find that hard to believe. Thoughts?
Still waiting for my rails and pylon to come back from powdercoating.
Parts replaced parts so far.
It was 35 degrees up here in Vermont this morning so I'm not feeling too rushed to finish it up, but the end is in sight.
