Re: how to pull a motor?

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

Re: how to pull a motor?

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 rebuild..like 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 this..my 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.
