Onwards and Upwards Troy,

It's always better to do it the right way and the satisfaction will be totally worth it in the end!

You'll get it Troy. Just keep on getting after it, bang away long enough and it'll keep the water out.

Back on deck,
Been missing for a while, had a bit of progress on the hull but have been busy freshening up the engine and a few bits and pieces. Gave the Gardner a good hot water clean and degreaser and decided to take it back to bear metal so l hit it with the old wire wheel on the grinder and drill to get into all the nooks and crannies, after a good few days of that we primed the aluminium with a killrust etch primer and three coats of top cot aluminium paint. Cylinder head was also taken back to bear metal and was give a coat of rust eater (rust neutralizer) and a coat of heavy duty primer and three coats of top coat in a grey l mixed up out of some killrust paint me and a mate had in the shed. Had the turbo recondition while it was off waiting for some more money to get the exhaust manifold sand blasted and either get it ceramic coated or just use a heat proof paint feed back on this would be great. but anyway enough rambling on now for the pictures which everyone loves hope you enjoy them.

It only has one injector pump as such but has two injector units that are located at the top of the main pump body, each one run off the same cam shaft in the main housing. Hope this makes cense.

Troy,
Good to see the G is getting a nice clean up.
On my 6LXB I don't have a water cooled exhaust manifold but it is ceramic coated.
No problems with heat transfer in the Eng Rm, just have to be careful not to touch it as it does not appear hot or exude much heat. I think it is a great way to go.
Cheers
Benn

Hey Benn,
Good to hear from you again mate,followed you on your trip to tassie this
year sounds like you had a ball. 2017 was hoping to be down there with Tracey
Lea if she is ready might have to meet in the paddock somewhere looks
like I missed out in entering the boat as seams be booked out rang the
up last year and was told April was when they where taking bookings
but missed out. Hope there will be room to tie up somewhere down there.
Engine has come up ok and was looking at getting the ceramic coating but
haven't looked into pricing as yet sounds like the go from your comments.

I hope the Gardner is accessible for viewing, and can repel the drooling of those taking a look. A work of art. Congratulations.
