Like a new engine.

My model K engine is back from rebuild, and it looks really good.

Before, a rusted out and seized engine.



















As good it looks on the outside, more important is the inside. All the components like, generator, fuel pump, oil/water pump, carburetor and starter has been completely dissasembeled and rebuild. New valves and seat, new pistons, rings and bearings. Bad cylinders has been sleeved and correct vintage wiring.

Like a new engine




















Pre-war CC engines have a deeper blue than post-war.

Wiring with thumbscrews.

When can we have an update on your marvelous project?

Sorry, but the 1 year hiatus has become two.... In this day and age you need to travel where work is. Will be back working on the barrelback in the fall of 2014.
However, I came by a Riva Florida that I could not pass on. You can follow the rebirth of this boat here: www.rivaflorida319.blogspot.com

Craig, I feel with you. I'll going to shop around more if I'll have a classic engine rebuilt.
