The usual. Not enough time, money
, place to work while living aboard
, place to live while working aboard... Need a job where they pay me more but I don't have to show up.
Right now I have the engine
(4-107) partly dismantled to correct an over heating
problem. This turned into a major restoration
of the externals, cooling
, oil leaks
, painting, serpentine belt kit, spin on fuel filter
conversion, fixed fire suppression with engine
and blower shutdown, 6 system alarm
cleanup. I have freshly painted valve covers, timing covers, and brackets on every horizontal surface. My girlfriend won't come see me anymore. Right now I'm on a parts
hold waiting for a few gaskets and a new water
pump with the correct shaft diameter for the serpentine pulley to come in. I still haven't fully decided where the new raw water
strainer is going.
