Oh Joy refit part 2 of many to come.

Jody came out today to help on Oh Joy. Since the weather was windy and cool, we ended up prepping the motor for R&R some.



Ugly beast...



We or I should say he, worked on disconnect items from the front this time. Things like raw water hoses, fridge compressor and alternator.



Lot's more to go.

Thanks for the mention Charlie... I just needed an excuse to say, "I got my hands dirty!" As always, thanks for having me out to assist. Can't wait to see her all beautified - as you've put a lot of work into her. I'll see you next week with the stuff to fix the AC issue...

Thanks for posting the pics and updates

Charlie,

Just in case you didn't know (and I didn't) -- the Bowman heat exchanger on your 4.108 is not fitted with a sacrificial anode. There's very little info on that bit included in any of the engine manuals, and I finally contacted Bowman directly. They were kind enough to e-mail me a tech drawing of the HX, along with a stiff upper lip English response that "Bowman does not use sacrificial anodes." Shoot me a PM if you'd like a copy of the drawing.

Anyway, I've been following your posts -- which look VERY familiar, as I'm doing the same thing on our Vagabond 39.

Cheers,
Tom
