We are going to the river next weekend and I was wondering what some of the guys with little kids have done with over the transom headers. My daughter is 2 1/2 and it will be her first river trip.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Need some advice
« on: February 21, 2011, 12:19:07 pm »
My boat is a 76 Wreidt and it has a 460 Ford in it, my Dad bought my boat new in 76 and I bought it from him when I was 18 in 2004. We always maintained everything well and it still runs good today my question is should I think about doing a rebuild on the motor before something happens or should I leave it alone. Thanks
