Started the work tonight with the most important part, changing the 90 sticker on the hood to 115.
Intend to start taking out the block if the weather is half decent this weekend or next.
Hoping to have it done in the next month or so ready for the summer..........

Finally got the block out today and got it into the garage to change the cams. It was a bit of a struggle lifting it out by hand, I'll definitely need an engine crane to put it back in as its a good bit heavier that I thought (or I am much older, can remember manually lifting engines out of Fords 30 years ago and up flights of stairs without much effort!)
Anyway, apart from any required cam shims have all the bits, will change out the cams in the garage now and see if my cunning plan works.............

Cams now out and the new cams just awaiting the delivery of some plastigage to check the bearing clearances.
All the valve shims measured ready for checking after the cams get fully installed and I can turn the crank over to measure.
Nobody ever did answer the question though, has anybody else ever tried doing this to a 90hp?
I keep looking and can't find anything that says you can't but I suppose I will soon find out!

I don't bl**dy believe it. I installed the two cams I bought as a pair last year for a DF115 and just before I torqued them down I ran a micrometer over the lobes and one of the damn things is a DF90 cam!
So when I bought a pair of DF 90 cams from the suzi dealer off ebay last year they supplied me with one of each for a DF90 and a DF115 rather than the pair I actually purchased.
Since it was a year ago and I only just took them out the box I have asked if they will swop it for the right one but don't hold out much hope.
So now I am snookered putting it back together until I can get a replacement cam, again, b**er!

Here, I thought the whole point of the other thread was we were all touchy feely and couldn't take the piss
I am in negotiations to get the cam swopped for the correct one, its just a mistake that has put me back, had been hoping to drop the block back in this weekend and start connecting everything up while I waited for the valve shims to arrive. Now I can't even measure them up till I get the correct cam.

ps I'll be leaving the 115 sticker on even if it stays a 90 just for the pose factor.

Got the right exhaust cam on its way up now, weather permitting should be able to drop the engine back in at the weekend (its snowing up here again and baltic)

And to add salt to the wound, Fedex have now officially lost the replacement cam.
Its beginning to look like starting 10 weeks before Easdale to do a job that should only take around 10 hours work that I won't have the boat put back together in time to go.

Have you tried Colin at Ardorran Marine?

He usually has a few breaking engines, you might get lucky.
