There's something strangely satisfying about a refurb. It's not the financial gain because there usually isn't one (don't tell my wife ) but the satisfaction must lie in taking a pile of scrap/junk and making it work as good if not better than original !!!!

Go for it !!

pictures???

My wife has banned me from any more restorations, 5 years on a 1974 Ford Bronco and a year and change on the zodiac. The boat would have worked out financially if the roll-the-dice used engine hadn't eaten a valve 7.5 minutes into my first run.
