Flywright, are you kidding? An undertaker couldn't get the smile off Paul's face. A great day indeed.

Must really be some heart beating exhilaration going on there!! A pair of sweet singing Detroit diesels are the perfect fanfare to announce Swampu's return!! A great day!

Well Monday I'll be tearing into the other motor. I can't in good conscience cover it up. It runs good but takes about 20 seconds to start and dumps a cloud of white smoke. Didn't really want to but it's time to bite the bullet again.

Well this has been a topsy turvy week. I had every intention to pull the starboard engine apart this morning but yesterday evening my brother came over and I was showing the boat and I hit the start button and it cranked right up! I pulled the injectors out and will get them checked. I'm putting the frame in off for now. I did install some bad ass filters today. The tips of the injectors were covered in carbon.

Well, 3 of the 6 injectors were bad. The three new injectors I bought a few years ago were the good ones. I got a half build on my oil pump for the gear so a few hours with the mechanic and the starboard engine should be up to snuff. Got some gel coat going down this week as well.
