Re: Perkins 4.108M DIY Rebuild -- A Narrative
Of course, the overhaul kit was just the initial gush of fiscal blood. The hemorrhaging will certainly continue...

I'd suggest putting up a list of current replacement engines with their prices on the wall of your shop. Whenever you get some sticker shock on parts prices for your rebuild, just have a look at the list. Don't forget to add a boat buck or three to cover the incidentals for a swap to any of them.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
