I removed and replaced the F.L. on my 36 foot Albin. I was able to remove the engine from the boat in one big heavy piece. We didn't even have to remove the motor mounts. Mine was in the water so the forklift operator and mechanic had pretty good visuals and were used to working together. It was close.It was the height of the engine more than the width that was the closest clearance.

I also had pretty bothersome issues with the sending units for oil pressure, heat and tachometers. Just took some head scratching and question asking.

It's a good feeling that the engine is ready to go for another 10,000 hours. It will probably outlast me.

Nice job reporting.

The key to having any engine rebuilt is the experience of the rebuilding shop with That Engine.
