I wonder if a half block is available and how much?
Anyone want a brand new 6.5kw Phasor generator attached to a half broken motor? The genny part cost $2000 three months ago, and not run more than one hour.
Make me an offer, but it must include coming to my boat in Titusville, Florida, and lifting the bloody thing out.
Ah, I mis-understood, thought it was your main propulsion engine, not to minimize the problem, however. If the engine has many hours on it there may be a ridge at the top of the cylinder which may make getting the pistons out the top difficult without honing or reaming the ridge down.
