The 43-footer cruiser has two engines, both of which are going through the process of restoration. It has been fully rebuilt using completely new original parts, this includes new bearings, pistons, rings, conrods, valves and springs. The head of the engine has been rebuilt and the pressure tested. A new lift pump has added. A rebuilt and calibrated Sims injection system. The overall idea being to restore the engine to original factory specifications.
The photo below depicts a engine on the port side of the boat which has it's own dedicated room for itself. The engine itself rests on a stainless steel engine bed and below it is a solid copper (Hand-made) drip tray measuring at six-foot long.
Below is the second engine, obviously currently being worked upon and yet to have been placed in its own engine room.
