Ouch on the thumb. That sucks. Other than that the boat is coming along nicely.

GT 40-p Heads are installed. Rockers are installed, just havent torqued them down yet. Here are some pics:

Make sure the gasket is installed correctly, there is a "front", the coolant passages must be in the back, also, if you can see little tabs in the front corners once installed, they are correct. You have to flip one of the gaskets to install it the correct way.







And a teaser valve cover mock up:


Ill torque the rockers next, and install the intake. Ill work on getting the hull completely sanded and buffed. Waiting on some more parts too (damper plate, oil cooler, fittings). Should be here next week and I can finish the motor, and connect it to the tranny.

Well I have gotten a bunch more work done over the last month or so. The motor is mated to the transmission. I gave up on my of the motor mounts, it was gone. So I replaced it. I save the other 3. Its looking nice now. I have to do a little more painting but its almost there. Gotta figure out how to get the thing in the boat. lower pulley and raw water pump are installed as well.




Bell housing attached.



It makes it much easier to install the 2 side bolts first to line up the splines on the shaft to the damper plate.





This is before the 2 rear mounts were installed.



Got the exhaust manifolds torn down. And as of right now, 1 of them reassembled with a new gasket.




I have also installed the bow ring and lifting assembly, the rear tow hook. And buffed the entire outside of the boat. I need to do a little on the inside still. Im going to paint the bilge area a lighter color, like a white or grey. It will make it easier to see any oil leaks and I think it will look nicer. Still trying to figure out what to do about the drive shaft coupler that I need to replace, I dont wanna replace the whole thing, shaft and coupler, but the skidim.com suggested that its been a huge pain to match the coupler itself in the past.

Well, I cut the old one to get it out. The coupler was completely rusted, I dont think it was going to release. So, avoiding the headache, Im gonna be buying a new one. I will install the motor, get it running first, without worrying about alignment, and then get the alignment done. People do it all the time, I imagine it cant be impossible to do.

I got more work done today. Im trying to see if I can get the motor in the boat by next weekend, thats the goal at least. I attached exhaust manifolds to the motor, primed, painted. I also painted the bilge with the first coat of grey bilge paint. I think it will look great when its done.





I also starter work on the fuel tank. The tank level sender has seen better days. I need to get a new one and also replace the fuel pick up.

Here's a couple images.
