RE: Engine transplant Fiat (IVECO) out Gardner 6LXB in

Hi Benn,

Keep the pictures coming, looks to be an interesting project. *I have my boat on the hard right now, new transom, bottom paint and finally a floor and bed in the cabin! *Due to launch on Sunday so hoping to start getting some more use out of it.


Cheers, Leon.

Gardners are highly regarded and sought after here in NZ also.
If you're building an LRC a common saying is , "First find your Gardner".

Well home from work for a few weeks.
Out to see the engine rebuilder today.
Then some time soon back up to Tin Can bay to see what else has to be done.
Still have to take out steel engine beds and gear box to bring down to Brisbane.
Will keep it comming as I make some progress.

RE: Engine transplant Fiat (IVECO) out Gardner 6LXB in

There is a Gardner Diesel shop right here in Pasadena,Tx. I would assume that it is there to service all of the engines that are doing service in the oil refinery business. I have always been intrigued by what kind of business they do and what I would find there if I walked thru the door....

Baker,
That's interesting, do they have a web sit?
Be keen to see what they are up to.

RE: Engine transplant Fiat (IVECO) out Gardner 6LXB in

Well back to the boat in the next couple of days.
Delivered the gearbox to the engine rebuilder today so that all can be coupled up as a single unit.
All going well this will be done by the time I get home from sea about 20 th jan 2011.

In the meantime it is time to clean the engine room fit the new sewage system and maybe do a top end overhaul on the gen set diesel a 3 cyl Perkins 103 - 15

Engine transplant Fiat (IVECO) out Gardner 6LXB in

Have just had a few new S/S drip trays made for under the engine, when it comes back.
Pick up the new holding tank early next week , it will go in where the Electra Scan is sitting.
Whilst I am back at work I have a young local lad doing some cleaning and painting.
He has done some nice work on an old timber boat in the marina so has a proven gtrack record, I hope he is ok.
Will also carry out a top end overhaul of the gen set whilst it is a bit more accessable.

I have attached a few Engine Room photos. There is a lot of space when the big girl is removed.
Benn
PS for some reason it will not allow me to upload pics. Will try again later.

Can't interpret the jibberish but I can't post a photo either.* It starts to load and then the communication with the site stops and the loading "animation" just keeps going around.* This has been the case with both PC and Mac, and MS Explorer, Firefox, and Safari.* Threw out cookies, reloaded preferences, no difference.

RE: Engine transplant Fiat (IVECO) out Gardner 6LXB in

Ah, glad to hear that! Not that I don't want to see your pictures but I tried on a computer at work this afternoon and the same thing happened but I just wrote it off as a local problem. When I got home I tried on a different machine and got the same symptoms. I was able to load the picture as a new avatar though ...

I wonder if it has something to do with those snails and hamsters that have been crawling around the site recently?

Now that RTF's attack-slug has been outed on the site I expect it's exacting its revenge by shutting down the photo capability of the forum. Perhaps RTF should hire out his slug to the government to deal with the Wikileak problem......

I thought I was having personal problems with photos myself. But, I finally determined with the aid of your post, that RT is the one responsible. I am relatively sure that he is doing this in the name of Assange and his Wicked Pedia. That is how you spell it isn't it. Seriously, I am glad to hear that I wasn't the only one with photo upload failure today.

Yup, got me too - I was blaming my recent Snow Leopard OS X upgrade as the culprit till I spotted Marin also having trouble. I couldn't even get the jibberish Benn of Tidahapa managed to post.
Hey Rick, what is that thing with the ribbon round it in your avatar?

Looks like a new boat he bought for me and I didn't even know he cared.

The avatar pic is the one I have been trying to upload. It is the Polar Star under a shrink wrap and scaffold tent at Rybovich in West Palm Beach having a bit of tween season work done.

I put it on the avatar just to see if the picture uploading problem was local or with the board. No problem making it an avatar but it still won't upload to a message.

If this helps, this is the error message I get when trying to upload that pic.
