Since I couldn't get the motor back in the boat today I prepped it a bit. I got some protective plastic on the carpet and got my side panels in today. I am excited that it is all finally coming back together.

looking great. fyi, I use 2 hoses for my bucket setup, both valves almost wide open. I use a ball valve on one of the hoses to fine tune it.

I finally got the motor back in yesterday, I really wanted to get the alignment done today but we are getting some gnarly thunderstorms today with no sign they will clear out. I would really love some shelter to work under.

I was running out of daylight making headway on engine wiring so I jumped to a side project. I replaced my cockpit lights with LED replacements. What a difference. That allowed me to figure out my labeling mistake with my choke wire and actually see my volt meter. I am actually starting to feel like I may get this sucker started this week!

Finally got her fired up and the cam broken in. Probably the most nerve racking 30 minutes I have had in a good long while. No major issues, a few things I had to tweak as I went along. Sorry I didnt get any better video.



My EI finally came in today and I got it wired up as well as installed new exhaust flanges. I am planning on taking her out for a lake test/ shake down run tomorrow with a buddy. Hopefully I can get her final timing and tune done and actually start enjoying some time on the water between aesthetic improvements.

Shake down run tonight!
Only 2 things to note:
My throttle cable is fairly sticky ill probably just replace, they are not very expensive.
My alternator tensioner bolt stripped. I had a spare nut and bolt to hold it for the rest of the run but it was a bit ugly for a bit. Once again I lack in my video, maybe my wife will have a picture or two I can post.
