Mine is a Grant chrome wheel...not the original aluminum wheel. Previous owner was a gorilla and the wheel is in tough shape.

Thanks for the compliment. I am quite pleased with the outcome.

As far as time goes, putting together a clean carb only takes about 20 minutes. The longer wait is for 24 hours of soak time. Let me know if you need a hand. Good luck.
Ha, yes, I was actually looking around for floats and a possible rebuild kit... Floats are next if this doesn't fix it. Finding them locally may be tough though. Thanks!

Should take a little squint out of my eyes.

Summer is officially over in Seattle, as least for us.

Pulled boat out of water:



Cleaned with Starbrite. Awesome stuff. Including hull on bunk boards. Jacked up hull on both side with 3.5t jack and did it proper.



Also, ran on hose to warm fluids and get lake water out of engine. Fogged engine with MM Oil. Changed oil and filter with Mobile 1 filter and 5q Valvoline VR1 20w-50 (conventional).
Drained engine block, both manifolds and heater. Pulled impeller. Stabilized fuel with Seafoam and Stabil.

Tomorrow, wash and wax. Vacuum, Vinylex and put in garage for winter.

Lots of projects scheduled for the off season.

Sadly only 13h on engine this summer. Too busy with work and family...

Hull is always nasty after 2+ months in the lake. Thankfully the mild acid wash takes it right off.

Sad day yesterday. Changed oil and winterized. First time for me, did my research on here and you tube. But one concern I have is....I drained manifolds and block then sucked 4 gallons of antifreeze into her. By the time I sucked the antifreeze up the engine had cooled down, would it still dispurse the antifreeze through out the engine?
Also changedy fuel pump last weekend, really enjoying doing the work myself. Feels good getting to know my boat better!
