Yay! Getting out of the glassing shed today and boat is getting washed off and ready for dry fit of engine and tranny.

Tank is basically done. Last gel coat applied to top. Gelcoat is still wet in pic. Sender needs to be mounted still.

Top drains very cleanly into bilge if needed from condensation or whatever.

Pulled the Konrad 520 leg and getting ready for the 560 to go on.

Also, finishing up the fuel tank and deck plate.

Here's some shots of the deck plate (former top of fuel tank) being dry fitted back.

We added a bomar hatch to access the new fuel fill below deck.

Shots of BAM tranny attached to engine, ready for dry fit today.

Had to rewire my 24 volt ignition key and accessory circuit to 12 volt, so we can run the electronic control module on the engine off 12v. Luckily my guages can run either 12 or 24 volt.

Waited a long time to see this.

Engine dry fit in boat.

I would say that is a tight fit.

True, tight - But certain things actually look more accessible that on the 6BT - filters and water pump come to mind!

Yeah for sure.

Actually, water pump, filters and even the belts look like easier access.

Custom exhaust dry riser and wet shower downhill mocked up.

Old 6BT exhaust came straight out and down off turbo and was marginal for safe distance above waterline. My old engine had definitely gulped some salt water through the turbo somehow.

This exhaust gives us tons of margin. Won't be worrying anymore about it.

More progress.

Shown in photo with yellow elastomer teeth is the fancy coupler between the Cummins and tranny. Engineered to take a lot of torque and supposedly a 0 service item once installed.

Rough aligning of drive shaft using laser and shaft alignments jigs.

Jack shaft has u-joints so alignment not super critical but still useful for getting in ideal position.

New Spicer 1350 drive shaft and u-joints. Old shaft went for service and was completely rusted together and unserviceable. More money, but not too bad.

New Engine has been sitting in a warehouse for 7 years.

Starts for the first time with one crank. I've been waiting to hear that sound for a long time now.

At this point in the project, I'm pretty much at the end of my rope, both financially and time wise. I need it to be done.

Luckily engine is ready to be dropped in. Engine harness is made and everything is ready to be plugged in. Just finishing the fuel connections to tank.



Throttle up. She's a lot quieter and clean than the old 6BT that's for sure.
