Thanks Hendo,I think I did the friend request ok.
My late sister, and now her kids, have 5 acres at Darlington. Your location looked similar, a nice unspoiled part of Perth.

Lol the hidden "Pleasures" of rebuilding a boat :-)

If I've buggered up the sheeting, the shaft seal and/or the stopcocks, at least the engine and tranny will look beautiful sitting on the ocean floor LOL :-D

Hendo, what you're doing scares me. In the same way most laymen don't want to know how the insides of a human being work, they just want them to work. Well, I'm the opposite. I'm ok with the human body, but I don't want to know the intricate details of my boat's transmission, I JUST WANT IT TO WORK..!..Rather like that old Honda add used to go. "Isn't something mechanical great when it just works".

Looking on the bright side however, you are going to really give meaning to the saying..."he knows her inside and out"...and I mean that in the nicest possible way...better than that, you'll know every single nut, bolt, screw, cog and joint..!

It's in my nature to pull things apart, whether they are broken or not :-)

I always wondered how anyone could own something they use daily and not have an understanding of how the system worked. The inside of a motor or transmission is a thing of beauty especially when you have built it with your own two hands and she purrs like a kitten.

Well personally if I hadn't have "played" with the tranny I wouldn't have known how she went together. I would have rather have not known but since I do it's interesting to know how it works.

I'm most excited about firing up the motor. The last time she was started was over 7 years ago and now I am rebuilding it, will be a momentous occasion. Can't wait :-D
