Besides some home projects, we are moving forward on the boat. Engines are out after being tested for performance, well within the factory specs. There are a few issues I want taken care of, trying to make servicing easier and a few small oil "weeps" not leaks. All in all not bad for a 20 year old boat. With them out I am replacing the water heater and cleaning up the bilges.

Almost forgot, all new engine mounts. After 20 years they are toast!

Engines are apart, heads are off and things are looking good. Cylinder bore cross hatch still visible in all bores. Now with 600 hours I am surprised to see almost all exhaust valves are leaking so it is valve job time. My biggest worry is now the after coolers. Only the starboard cooler was apart today, and it shows there was a small leak in the housing. The seal areas have no pitting so I may have dodged a bullet, fingers crossed for the other side. These are not made anymore, and I have not seen any available new or used. The injection pumps will be sent out and the turbos checked and cleaned. They do have a buildup of soot in the exhaust side.
