Greased all my fittings and bearings. Loading up the ice chest and tube getting ready for the lake tomorrow.


Live first work last. Except I own a jet boat and it drinks a lot of gas.

Mine was stiff when working it back and forth on the trailer.
Once I got it on the water and under power, it was amazing!

Picked up a rebuild kit for the
new-to-me carb and started tearing it down to clean and check what's in it.

Took the carbs off to go thru them.

Kind of funny, I haven't really touched the boat since August. I pull the carbs and this thread pops up today.  :)

Put a swing-away on today. Tomorrow the motor and pump come out. All of my engine parts are in. Full comp-cam valve train and a whole lot of other parts. Jetboatperformance is building my energizer pump and should be done soon.

Did some polishing while waiting for a couple parts and shop time to pull motor and put new 10qt pan on. Next I'll start installing water/fuel separator.
