desert season is half over but working on the boat is vetoed until this thing runs, i thought i would share some pics. yesterday after 3 months of waiting i  received my new adapter kit, now i can get started on the mounting and all the fab work. like everything else right now, we are on a budget so it isn't going to be very fancy.

Today I got to spend some time on this, finally received the oil pan and bolted everything together for mock up. As soon as I got ready to start cutting some tubing and start doing some welding I realized I was out of gas and too late to  get some today, so here it sits..
