Awesome Thread! First time I read it. I enjoy the story, progress and pictures very much. I too am restoring a 1990 32' Fly Bridge Sedan. Our boats are identical. Looks like your more than capable and you got this but don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, would be glad to help.

That's a wonderful sound to hear a new engine come to life, and a great feeling too. Love following this thread.

Javalin, THANKS.....I'm no mechanic, but every time I finish an engine and it fires I am absolutely thrilled. I have one black mark on my record....a god forsaken volkswagen 1600cc (i think) engine that I built when I was 16. I don't talk about it. Anyway, I picked up the stbd engines heads from the machine shop this afternoon and figured y'all would like to see.

Standard rebuild with the addition of: stainless valves (to replace the sodium filled valves), hardened seats, all new guides, "extreme" duty hardware (retainers, keepers, and springs). Cost a freakin arm and a leg but I'm hoping they are worth it.

Engine got another coat of paint, wasn't too worried about hoses and plug wires since everything will be changed out before the drop in date.

Also, I am attempting to take both of these alternators and possibly make one good spare. Wish me luck. The salt bath took its toll.

the starboard velvet drive was in much worse shape than the port. I bought all new bearings off of amazon using the original bearings part numbers. SOOOO much cheaper than buying any kit from Borg Warner.
