Yeah, think you could be right there, judging from a report on the racing on Wednesday posted on the other side, and the fact that they came back missing a rudder just a few weeks ago.

Hope it all comes together soon (literally!) and looking forward to seeing you on the water!

I can understand why it is now costing so much...

Water in a diesel pump is not good .... not good at all, the prices CAT charge for parts and labour is nuts..... the positive thing is that when it up a running again it , it should run and run and run ................

I bet that cat will sound amazing.... like sweet music ....... is it Turbo'd too???

yeah it is running fine now it's just the flow isn't enough. I must admit when the CAT turns over (it fires within 2 seconds) and I hear the engine it's easy to forgive it all the grief it's caused.

the lump is a v8 with a 12.7 litre block which generates 45 hp and has 1650 footpounds of Torque. just a few more days of waiting left

45 hp doesn't sound very much!
