Yes, I've seen you over on the Moyer forum.
Mostly, I'm just reading over there, haven't had a need to post yet.
My A-4 seems to be in fantastic shape. It sat for one year, and fired up at the first bump of the starter button when the owner demonstrated it for me. Shifted well too. We filled a 5 gallon bucket for it to drink from, since the boat is on the hard. It has an electric fuel pump, and the owner left a complete tune-up kit for it, a waterpump greasing kit, and a thermostat.
I finished the stuffing box yesterday, using MaineSail's tutorial, and Don Casey's website. I was able to get 3 rings of packing into the nut. I used the Goretex stuffing.
It wasn't especially difficult, but I'll still be nervous until I launch and actually see how much water comes in.
