I need to make a plexi window for mine. That corner of the shop is so dark now all the time. Looks nice Eric!

Nice clean AC install Eric, I have a little window unit in my detached garage that my parents bought back in '66, still cranks out ice cold air!

The retaining wall is in bad shape, but our estimates put the failure at about 3-5 years out barring biblical rains. It's about a 15K project to replace, so it's a ways off.

Pulled the power head off my Yamaha engine. Exhaust corrosion which is a common "defect" in early Yamaha for strokes.

Power head


lower unit where the work needs to be done

Been there with outboards before, I like my I/O 4.3L chevy, but I don't dare take it in salt water.

Well saltwater in this situation plays no role, since the corrosion is the "dry exhaust". Essentially everything under the power head needs to be replaced. Oh well.

Used the X to go pick up the beater on the side of the highway again last night. Dang CPS went and it's less than 6 months old. Ugh.

Towed nicely in 93* heat with the AC on blast. ECT and EOT within 10* and max was 200/210. The 6.0 cooling system is happy and functioning properly.
