I haven't been on the site in years. We have been slammed in the shop but I'm taking on a fun project for me. My goal is to build a nasty ass motor with all junk shop dropping parts. Going to be fun and push some envelopes using damaged parts. 1st Off is Im using a block from another marine motor company a customer just gave it to me after he blew it up. It kicked a rod and spun two main bearings. Then I loaned it to a customer to use as a jig block for his rigging. He left it outside and now its a rust bucket. Anyway the block is junk and pretty much worthless. So were welding it back together with a comic bandaid and pushing in a new sleeve and I rounded up 2 used caps from another Jig motor and will give it a shot to get the line bore within acceptable ranges.
