Enjoy the trip north and the new ride.
Couldn't give you accurate amount since OCCS still owned the boat and used a mechanic
on staff for labor. parts
were new exhaust elbow
($250) a "off eBay" rebuilt heat exchanger
($225) and associated gaskets and seals
$100. As you know it's a problem just working on it so labor was at least 3 days all told. Front of engine
access is available only through port lazarette and its a yoga lovers nightmare to contort a human body to reach some items. Fuel
system clean-out and fill was $735, thats was me. The original HOMs meter has 700 hrs and I think that's from the original md11c 2cyl and was not turned back when repowered. This is from rigger who took care of boat for last 22yrs as the engine
swap was before he took over account from another mechanic
. So total parts is $575 + $735 + labor @ 24hrs @ 65.00 = 2777.00 only $735 on my end. Starts after about 5-6 revolutions which is a lot better when we started I think it's just needs to be ran, which I plan to do. Thx John
