Engine Progress

Tuesday, January 13, 2015

Derrek has been working hard getting Morning Dance's Engine hauled out! Harold came over and gave us a hand with the logistics and extra hands for lifting once we got it prepped and rigged up with a come-along and chains attached to the boom.

It started with prepping the engine to get it small enough that it would fit through the walk-through hallway - removing the starter, injector pumps, etc to get it down to the engine 'block' itself.
Engine "before" everything was removed to the bare block

work in progress.....

The cause of the engine failure....

Next came removing the transmission to allow room for the new one and the old generator that no longer worked.
Derrek cleaning the engine parts to hopefully later sell online along with our spares.

There is nothing like doing boat projects....

Curious about everything...
