    Well, my busy season got into full swing and all my projects were put on hold. Then I had other stuff to do like run power to my new shop and start putting all my ducks in a row. Then January this year I quit my dayjob to run my shop full time and hope for the best. Yay!!! Things are starting to pick up but I did have a bit of spare time to press in a new valve guide and got the head ports gasket matched and did some bowl blending to smooth everything out nice behind the valve faces. More pics to come!!

    Here's the block sitting on a workbench.
    The intake ports needed a bit of carving to match up nice with the intake itself.
    And all of the intake valve pockets got some blending to smooth the transition.

    The exhaust side also needed carving to get a good gasket matchup.
    And all the exhaust pockets got the same blending treatment.

    So.....getting in the groove of running my own shop and finally trying to get some "me" time. People expect me to fix a watercraft 24/7 I guess. Now I have set hours and I don't answer the phone after those hours. Anyway, got the oil pump all cleaned out and reassembled, got the stator and front cover put on, mounted the head, and set the cams on. Now I'm ready to time it and check valve clearance.

    I found some time today to time the cams........the service manual is worthless for this! Also mounted the pto assembly, checked valve clearance, and put the valve cover on. About ready to drop this in!

    Today I dismantled the oil tank/cooler, lots of glitter in the bottom of it, cleaned and mounted it. Then decided to jump the starter to make sure it turned over smoothly.............uh oh! Some idiot put the starter clutch in backwards. No biggie, just popped the stator cover and had it right in about 10 minutes. Glad I decided to turn it over.
    Anyway, time to clean the fuel system and drop this thing back in!!!

    Yanked the fuel tank today for a proper cleaning. Also inspected the fuel pump filter and tested pressure. I don't want any surprises.

    Today the hull got a thorough cleaning, tank went back in, and the motor was set back in and aligned.
