We were on a mooring at the Boston Yacht Club for four days while Dan and Robbie did the Job.
|Dan figuring out how to Lift the Engine|
Day one: problem solving how to raise the engine in the boat (6 inches or so) so that they could pull off the shaft, transmission, bell housing, and rear fly wheel to get to the rear seal.
|Engine Lift Plate|
Day two: actually lift the engine, disassemble and get the part to the shop for the install of a new rear seal.
|Pulling the Bell Housing |
Off the Perkins
Day three: Put it all back together and make sure it works.
|Tight Engine Space|
By 4:00 PM on Saturday, the work was complete, the engine ran flawlessly, and the problem was solved. Hard to believe how much work it was to put in a $75.00 part. I cannot say enough good about Hanson and the job Robbie and Dan did. Thanks Fred for making it all go so smoothly. Now Kay and I feel the engine is ready for our journey south!
