    Dont you hate when life gets in the way of a great project?

    So before I build the deck, I have a drainage problem to fix, which runs under where the new deck will be.
    The sump pump for the house dumps into 4" corrugated behind the house and the down spouts also dump here.
    There is a blockage somewhere that needs fixed before the deck is built.
    So I need to hire an excavator before the deck/pool project.

    In the mean time........, the shop/work was way slower after the move than I expected.
    Based on this, I shut it down an got a real job and have been working my balls off for the last 3 wks.

    Was in the shop last Sunday for the first time since.
    Going through motors.
    The motor Donnie checked for me was only showing 65ish lbs compression and should be 100.
    Pumping it full of Seafoam and its coming up.

    Also going through carbs on both motors and ignition.
    Assuming they are healthy internally, I will assure the ignition/carbs are as well.
    I dont want motor problems once the restomod is done/rigged.

    Pulled them back off the bracket so I can pull it and finish its construction as well.

    This project reminded me that my real joy is in building/modding motors, not restoring boats.
    Thats a necessary evil due to my self imposed budgets.

    Should have bought a pontoon boat
