The box of Cheez-It's weren't 10 years old were they???

Hopefully it doesn't need much to run!

Todays update:
  • Removed interior
  • Removed gas tank
  • Replaced fuel lines
  • Replaced impeller
  • Replaced water lines
  • Pulled steering cable
  • Installed new ignition switch

Can someone please post a picture of the orientation of the raw water pump. I am pretty sure mine is in the correct way but I just want to double check. (I forgot to mark the orientation)

A couple pics...


And everything tucked in...

Any suggestions on how to get the rusted plugs out? I hit them all with some liquid wrench but it is not helping at all. I don't want to tug too hard and snap a plug off inside the block.

Patience..... give it another shot of a penetrant and let it sit overnight.... I have heard tell of having to drill them out and retap, etc.... That's a tough drain plug. Don't forget the one in the bottom of the J-tube. You should have total of 5 drain plugs... two engine block, two exhaust manifold, and one J-tube.

If you decide to replace the carpet, remove the old carpet in as much of a full piece as possible (probably three total pieces) to use as a template for cutting the new carpet. Saves a lot of headaches with a template.

Told ya you'd love working on this boat! I can't wait to see it after you polish it! If I could change one thing about mine I'd make it metal flake. Good work so far. Edit: oh, if you haven't already, make sure that engine turns freely before you try to start it.

You're welcome to inquire anytime. I have a longtime passion for the older boats. Started with my first MC (new) in 1979. Been at it ever since.....

Good to see you working on a legacy boat.
