I almost forgot to change the impeller on the raw water pump here is the old one. It would have made a mess if I keep it in.

OX, I will send my original combing pad for a templet to copy from it is just the wood. I marked them today so you would know what way to install them and cut the new ones. I can take a pic for so you can see them if you like.

You've got tons of room in that shop and it looks like you've got the right tools for the right job. I'm envious. I have to do all my work outside. My fiance and I are getting married in September and all we're asking for is money and Home Depot gift cards. With that she's going to allow me to build up the tool arsenal. I don't think she knows, that I know, that her allowing me to do that is a roose so she can create honey do lists for me. They funny thing is, she doesn't realize I like that stuff as long as I have the right tools to do it.

Man, that impeller is rough and might have ruined your first day out!

I was noticing your windshield is different than other '79s. Was that part of the LTD package?

jdubwall, There was no thermostat on the motor when I took it apart. It was the same way on my American skier. I didnt see a cout out where one had been should the motor have one on it???



jipster43, It was a stock "80" LTD windshield that came with the boat. On page 2,3 there is a wright up on the LTD in winter projects post by Markismm.

All the underwater gear is on. I am glad that part is all done. I did some updating on the boat I will have to upload some pics tomorrow.

Ox, My Father and I own the body shop. There is a ton of room it will fit a school bus and 3 cars. I have every tool right at my fingers that I need. That is good news to hear that you are getting married soon. I like your way of thinking gift cards for tools you can never go wrong there.

I would say that there was one there originally (probably around 140 degrees)...but, when there isn't a thermostat, it is often due to a "home repair" to an overheat problem.

Judging by the condition of the raw water impeller that you took out, the PO wasn't exactly a high maintenance guy. That engine may have been running hot previously just because of the age of the impeller.
