that looks great! I've been pondering something similar, but want to make a davit that serves as a pot-puller/outboard hoist/dinghy hoist but doesn't get in the way of fishing. I feel like this is...

well, I still feel like there's a knock and white smoke but I haven't been out past the fuel station since October. If it's not just my imagination, it's definitely nothing like it was when the...

I only tested the injectors on the side I took apart. In hindsight I should have pulled the other 4 but my objective was to get it fixed and back together, I definitely had some tunnel vision after a...

thanks, it will all work out eventually. Honestly it's becoming a little comical at this point, but I sure do drink a lot more than I used too...(just kidding). I think it was harder the first time...

hello everyone, long time, no post. I replaced two injectors- the one on the broken piston was bad and one I managed to tweak trying to get it out of the head and ruined it. Put the new piston on,...

Oil was apparently pretty dirty even after I changed it, but otherwise seemed good. I'd need to add some occasionally but never noticed thinning, "growing," or a diesel smell. Thanks!

I just talked to the mechanic that did the rebuild and apparently when the boat was overhauled in 2004, the owners wanted it faster after the engines were rebuilt. The mechanic gave it more rack in...

yes, it was black and dusty just like the others. The mechanic that did the rebuild thought there should be another part number besides the one we found on the bad piston. We thought maybe it was...

what do you mean by steam cleaned? Is it because it's so clean compared to the others? I mentioned my son had cleaned it to to try to find the part number, but maybe I wasn't clear enough that he...

The only thing I can catch a fingernail on is the top of the cylinder I pulled the piston from where the metal transfer is. Can't feel the line in 3L, and can just barely feel the line in 4L with my...

Here are the pics. The holes in the top of the bad piston are there because I couldn't get it out all the way from the bottom so I added a few screws to attach a small cable to and pulled it from the...

Thanks, but we don't have those places here. We are a small, remote fishing town with very limited resources and somehow only one diesel shop in spite of the number of boats here. Kind of blows my...

yes, it's a 3 ring piston. Which apparently makes it harder to replace. I contacted a diesel shop in Tacoma and they're supposed to be looking into it and calling me back. The engine was rebuilt in...
