Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

Jim,

Didn't keep a real close track on time, 'bout 2 weekends to dismantle (down to last nut and bolt). About the same to reassemble.

Machine shop cleaned block, head etc and did all the grinding, pressing etc. I basically just did the teardown and reassemble.

Wok done was somehting like this this: Flushed out oil passageways and replaced block plugs; skimmed head and block faces; replaced all bearings, seals, gaskets; re-sleeved cylinders; new pistons & rings; cut out valves seats and replaced seats, valves, guides and seals; reground crank and fitted new bearings; new injector pump and injectors; new injector camshaft bearings and seals; new governor internals and refurbished rest of governor; rebuilt alternator and starter; new engine mounts. Phew.

Engine runs great now.

I have Kubota part numbers for everything in a spreadsheet. Glad to share that or anything else I can help with.

Eric

Just re-read the whole thread.
Did I miss it?
Did anyone mention what the yard bill ended up being.
We have a pool going here and need to know who wins.

David, I did list it somewhere, but apparently not in this thread. It's over here:

Thanks for reminding me.

It might be my imagination but it seems like a good rule of thumb is that often the labor amount is some good multiplier of the material.
Something like material times 1.5 or thereabouts.

I can just imagine how pleased you are to open the engine hatch and see a freshly painted engine and machine room.
Must be very nice.
Congratulations on sticking it through.

I'm recently interested because of my friends Almond 31 I've been sailing the last few weeks.

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

I think your laboar/material calculations are roughly what I've seen used in other industries, too.

As to how happy I am about the engine, yeah, it's nice to know that it should be in good shape for a while. Now if only my wife enjoyed seeing the clean engine compartment and freshly painted engine...

If you or Charlie have questions, I'm happy to try to answer any that I can. Have you and he seen Allmand Sail Dedicated to bringing Allmand owners together and the Allmand Owner's group on Google Groups? I personally hate the user interface of the Google Group, but the people there are fairly responsive (very little activity though) and the documents section has a lot of good information. If you're ever down in NJ, let me know and I'll take you out on our boat. It would be interesting to get your take on the differences between the boats.
