I would be happy to take any specific pics you would like, please tell me what is most helpful. What is the likely hood the rear main is shot? Boat has 587 hrs. The oil pan seems to be blistered from rust. Not to sure how I would pull the motor.

Lunch time report: transmission is out, flywheel is off, rear main seal is out and going to grab a bite to eat and a new rear main. I will also be grabbing some pb blaster and brake cleaner.

Now might be a good time to take a close look at the damper plate. Another couple hundred bucks, but if it needs replacing nows the time to do it, rather than after you put it all back together.

You may want tpo remove that teak rope locker cover before it gets busted or grease all over it. Put it away for safe keeping and it will clean up nicely.

I took a good hard look at the damper plate. There are no hairlines or any damage to report. I took the flywheel, damper, bell housing, and bell to block gasket off, cleaned them up and I am spraying a fresh coat of paint on them. The teak floor plate is out and soon my swim deck will be too. The swim deck needs some help where it has cracked in a few places. The entire cuddy has been gutted/ labled and valve covers have been removed for blasting. Carpet will come out tomorrow along with the vinyl side panels. Good god did they use enough fasteners on those? Also the Al chair supports have been removed for polishing.

I found myself with a little bit of down time waiting for an appointment today. If I can get them both cleaned and polished i will prime and paint them tonight.

Ok, so I have been slacking on uploading these. Please excuse the messes everywhere.









The entire interior is coming out, parts are on the way to rebuild the transmission, we have finally decided on an interior color scheme/ vinyl for the entire boat, and today I am rebuilding the carbs. I am ready for this thing to start going back together instead of tearing it apart!
