Boat came today. It looks like I will need to do a little gel coat repair. Pulled engine out checked for spark and did a compression test. Engine is good. I went the the whole engine replaced the stock junk bearings and inspected the cylinder. Looked like it was hardly run. Engine is all back together except for the back plate. I stuffed it and need the JB weld to dry overnight. That should be done tomorrow. I can now focus on the hull ,tank lines , wire to the kill switch and check the water pump. Overall not to bad. I just need a radio box. Install servos and done.

Tested engine before I went on holiday. I had to replaced the carb with a new one to get motor running . Tested water pump too. All works good now. I will rebuild original carb this week. Found radio box and ordered it along with some bites so everything ready to install.

Just about finished. The radio box was more complicated than I thought. It wasn't exactly the same as my other boats. The boat is smaller and that changed the position of the rudder servo. Overall I finished the radio box mounted the servos and installed the radio box. The servo both work fine. I just have to lock the motor down and seal the radio box and it's finished. All that is left for the few chips on the gel coat to finish. Which I have to order something new to fix the gel coat.

Took it outside today and ran it for 5 minutes. It starts easy and the idle is super! Everything works good. Finial testing will have to wait until spring.

I decided to replace the stock bushing in the strut with needle bearings on the commander ll and empress. as they will wear out fast. They will be here this week.

Finished installing needle bearings in struts on both boats. Now I working on some spare motors I picked up cheap for my boats. Only Homelites. One was just a short block with full crank and head. Other was a complete motor. I cleaned it up and got it running as it was and noticed how much loss of power it had. I removed the restrictor caps and it really opened up! I cleaned the carb and replaced the filter screen and now it runs real smooth. The stock carb was a C1u. It's ok but the Walbro 363 is way better. All my parts have arrived to start rebuilding the Zenog2d parts motors I have. I had enough spare parts for 2 more motors.
