    I spoke to the engine builder my engine is done and will ship out on Monday. He told me put the core in the crate and call him when its ready for pickup and he will pay the return shipping. And he didn't charge a core charge.

    Sounds really good. You should be on the water in a couple of weeks.

    The new motor came and I've just been to busy to get it in. I got all the interior out of the back and the rear wall out to make some room to pull. Hopefully this weekend I can get the old one out.

    Hoping your old block was vortec block, intake manifold, timing chain cover and oil pan are different. Your old pan and timing cover may work together never tried it..

    The new vortec replaces 5.0 with the upped horse power rating have not put one in its place to see if there is any power loss on the 1.5 ratio outdrive but I am thinking the other way around..

    I have the newer 4.3 in my searay i may just play around with a 1.5 ratio drive and see if i can pick up some speed.

    The motor is all together and back in the boat. Everything working OK. I put all new parts on it water pump starter and such. Just have to hookup the fuel pump. Found the gas tank has allot of water so the tank needs to be pulled and drained. Which I planned on doing since its been setting for a few years. I'm also going to rebuild the complete our drive so everything is new.
    So hopefully a couple more weeks it will be ready to go.

    It took allot longer and allot more money then I had planned but the boat was done by the end of summer. I get to take it out a couple times. Now its winterized and shrink wrapped for the winter.
    I just ran out of time and ended up taking it to a marina for them to finish the work. They rebuilt the transom and the out drive. So basically everything ended up having to be replaced. I found out they also didn't pull the drain plug and it had some water back there which also ruined the starter. They also replaced the cables for the shift and the throttle.
    So basically all the mechanical s are brand new.
    Finished hooking everything up drained the fuel tank and put it in the water for a test drive. They even gave me dock space for a couple of weeks.
    Boat runs out great. Looking forward to next season.

    The other question I have is the lights dont work on the trailer. I'm looking at buying new LED lights and want to replace all the wiring. Its pretty rough. The kits I saw on E-Bay dont come with enough wire lenght. Is there a place that makes bigger kits or should I just buy a roll of trailer wire.

    Just buy a roll of wire and splice it in where needed. Use heat-shrink tubing to keep the connections water-tight.
    Did you take any pictures of the engine replacement? As others say on this forum, if there are no pictures, it did not happen.....
