Re: Diesel engine install
I finally got all the stuff connected and started the engine. All worked great. It started right up. I went below to check on things and found that all was well. I ran it for about an hour. No fluids leaked out and levels were all good after shutdown. Did not connect the prop shaft and found that the alignment needed a small amount of adjustment after the run. The rebuilt engine ran a lot smoother than before and I suspect the new motor mounts helped. Cannot get it to the water until mid September to finish. We are leaving on a two month RV trip Sunday to visit grandkids that are scattered all over the place.
