Ay with Zee. If needing to pull it out. Remove all weight you can. Also helps squeezing through thght areas. You be shocked what brackets will make a simple task turn to its being wedged. After that rig a few blocks off your boom. A pry bar or two to assist walking it out. Extra muscle form those willing to hop in is always helpful to.

wondering around with no destionation

3700 hours and running well...let it be. it will go longe forever..just treat it welland dont rebuild it yet. too soon. isnt even what i had on mine in the few miles i sailed here in mexico. dont mess with a smooth running engine.
but if you have more bux than you know what to do with, put those dollars into a bank account and wait for a better time to when you are out cruising and it booms on ye. then is the time to do this. you might f ind it is cheaper to wait.... lemme say complete rebuild in usa would be over 4500 usd in price. here i am paying 2500 usd or less , INCLUDING the injector pump. AND LABOR.

so... wait. wait wait wait
my way , you get to visit exotic locales when you have to get inside engine.. there ARE fine mechanics in pair a dice.
