Re: Diesel engine install

Yesterday I did a double check of everything and rigged up a water supply to the new engine and hit the start button. The little engine that could, did.
I ran it for about an hour-had to adjust the idle a little. All gages stayed normal and there were no fluids on the hull or seeping out of the engine. I rechecked the alignment and found it needed very little adjustment. The engine ran a lot smoother than before the rebuild. Unfortunately. I have to abandon this project for a couple of months to take the admiral on our normal summer RV trip to visit grand kids that are scattered all over the place.
