Well this week I got 2 things going.
I drove to Naples Florida
and picked up a hard dingy with oars and oar locks. It's 9.6 ft by 4ft wide and cost 200.00 USD plus 45 USD for gas. I will more then likely get a small sail for it because it used to have a mast
and sail but as it is now I don't have to register it.
I also pulled the heads off the engine and put diesel
down in the cylinders to loosen the rings. I will let it sit in there for a few days and try to turn the engine by the front crank nut. Which is great because it's supposed to rain all week. I have had a few old timers tell me to do this they said get it to move an inch then refill with diesel
about 1/2 inch above the piston and let it sit for a few days again. Repeat until you turn the engine 360 degrees. They all say these Penta's were great little engines and if I can save it do it.
I have ordered a shop manual for it and I need to take a few pics and upload them for you guys. I also want to upgrade the water
separator and fuel
filters to make them easier access, replace the fuel
lines while I'm there, and use fuel filters more widely available.
That's what's going on this week and probably next week too.
