At Long Last

At long last our lil' huffer (diesel engine) has made it's way home.
Yanmar 4JH-TE 55 Hp Turbo
It took approx 6 months to get the fuel injection pump rebuilt and re-installed. Apparently it was a problem with sourcing the parts required. There was a lot of damage inside the pump from improper storage (my fault) or pre-existed. Anyhow it's home.

The Offender - Fuel injection pump
She's all tucked away under 4 layers of tarp and sitting in the lil' red wagon. I've got some work to do in the shed in the spring and we'll set her in the boat ASAP. The service technician said I should run it ever 3-4 months so that's what we'll do!

That should be it for boat building this year. I know there wasn't much that got done and nobody is more disappointed in that than me. Maybe next year will be better.

Stay well and happy my friends. See you in the spring.

Yours Aye!
