I towed the Formula into the shop the other day and decided to do some preventative maintenance. I pulled the drives off to swap out some new u-joints and gimble bearings. Havent had the drives off since I owned the boat so I thought it would be a good time to check things out.

Then I decided to pull a motor to go over things with that. I purchased neww cams two seasons ago so I thought I might toss them in real quick

your damn brave to take apart a good running
boat in the middle of the season.!
:beers:
If my junk is running during the season
I wont do anything more than change the oil.
In my world anytime I try anything more than that
it turns into a major mission and the boat sits out
the rest of the year.

I imagine your formula will be minty clean after you have worked there for a year.


Keep it up, nice to see the old bird being rejuvenated.

Andretti is like McGyver...he will have the motors back in before next weekend I bet!
I wouldn't say a McGuyver....but I do intend on having this ready for Pirates weekend and Kingston Poker Run. I would also say I would hope to have it back in action by this next weekend. I will be gluing it back together tomorrow....saturday. Then a few updates on the drives and back in the engine goes. ;)

Not a winter project for me....you should see this place in the winter. you couldn't fit a moped in the building with all the boats that are stored in these buidings. Now is the time to work on the boat if I am going to do it here at the shop.
