Well a few weeks ago, I got to work on the boat. She is cleaned over and out. I have turned the engine over and checked all the electronics. The blower works, the hydraulics work, the steering works (cable), the lights work, the fuel pump works, the coil energizes and the plugs are hot, the horn does not work :).

Next step is to get the carb rebuild kit and the water pump rebuild kit. I'll rebuild those, replace the hydraulic hoses, and water circulation hoses and then the engine is going to be fired up. After that, the last step is to pull off the outdrive and replace the bellows. I have a friend here who is a boat mechanic so I'm going to ask him to help me w/ this job as its just a little out of my range.

Updated pics.

Mercruiser 165. It's an inline 6 cyl. Mercruiser outrdive but I can't recall which one, I think Alpha one but I'd have to verify.

My buddy who is a boat mechanic came to take a look and help me turn the engine over. He looked inside the engine and was pleased. He said it looks as though it has very low hours. He stated there is no "gunk" in there which he translated to mean no build up on the valves and such. The carb is gummy but thats to be expected.

I went and looked at my closest boat ramp yesterday. I'm about ready to jump outta my skin. I want this thing in the water. However, I'm still taking my time and doing this right!

Ok so here is the update. I got a copy of the manual for the outdrive. It looks like I can replace the seawater pump relatively easily myself. I plan to get the pump kit and do this work next month. I also found the carb rebuild kit and will do this next month. Should be out about $80 for the parts for both and then I'll be ready to start the engine. The only trick will be installing new gear oil but it shouldn't be too difficult.

The big news is that there is no way I am going to tackle replacing the bellows myself. The bellows connect the exhaust from the engine to the outdrive, cover the drive shaft, and cover the shift cable. There are specialize tools and special adhesives that I don't have. Additionally I just don't trust myself to do this and then put my family in the boat. No big deal, there are a couple Mercruiser certified repair places within 40miles of the house. The job cost will be about $1000.00 so that is the sticking point. I just have to earn/save/sell to make the $1000.00. I won't take that out of the family savings.

The neat news is the NADA price for the boat. I put all the specs into the NADA guide and the Low Retail value of the boat is $2150.00. This is cool since I only paid $350.00 for the boat!! So I'm happy w/ the purchase even if I have to drop a grand into it to get it on the water.

So who wants to start a collection to help me fund the project. I promise if you ever come to visit I'll take you out on the boat and you can see me in a bathing suit. Oh and I tried to convince my wife to get a job at Hooters to fund it....that didn't work and she gave me that look, you know the one Twisted Evil

Ahhh now, I get it.....you see I'm pretty dang slow. Oh Cort (my wife) and I got wings from Hooters once before the kid was born. We were getting them to go. She stayed in the car until I came out with them. Very funny stuff. I sat at the bar and had a beer. She sat in the car.

Crash, this is your time to step up, brother. Just think, if you donate and show up at Nick's place, you won't have to google for jockstrap porn for a LONG time...
