  • spark plug wires have been annoying me too.....think I will order some wire separators to at least organize them. But I suppose zip ties would work for now....I could use the Roadkill wire separator trick lol!

      • Took me a while to catch up on all the Fugly updates....

        crazy on what happened to that motor, but looks like nothing a few thousand won’t fix.

        All the work on this boat is top notch. Thanks for taking the time to post all the nitty gritty detail. Excellent work, can’t wait to see all that hard work reach finality.

        • Thanks for the kind words Chuck!

          So I got the bracket mounted and everything ready to go for the oil lines today...last step......and I ordered the wrong $%^#&#@$ ends for the AN hose! I swear I ordered the ones for PTFE hose, but never really paid any attention till I went to put them together today. Just ordered the correct ones from Summit, looks like they will be here Tuesday. I was wanting to break in the engine tomorrow and go take her for a splash, but guess that will wait. My fault, so I guess I will have to suck it up and wait a couple more days.....I have to say I wasn't really happy, but it is what it is.

          • I will say the bracket turned out great....really just blends in like I hoped. Now for the black oil lines....

            • Arch,
              I’m trained as an engineer (3 degrees) and a certified welder (MIG, TIG, Stick) and I am really impressed. It doesn’t get any better than that!
              Cheers,
              Craig
