Looking at that engine reminds me of one of my favorite shows "American Restoration".

I love seeing classics like that restored.

If you can bring that thing back to life... maybe you need to have your own TV restoration show?

I don't know about a show.But I do love working on them. Here is the tower housing looking for the rebuilt power head. Still working on that!

Also working on a cutdown Flying Saucer. The sides were just to high for a "50,s" boat.

Also here is the repaired rear cover. Still have some more work to do on it but a good start.

I don't get how you guys do that... I look at it and think its too far gone, and you look at it and know you can patch it up.

And its not just the skill, its the attitude and the vision you need to have to want to take it on. I wish more people in the world had that view. I see it a lot in boat builders, or restorers, and the odd 'greyhair' out there. Most everything else is just tossed out... too out of date to bother.

I am excited to see how it turns out, and after its back to life pushing a Bingo around on the water, as it should be.

Would love to see the final product! I love fixing old racing stuff or just old stuff in general!
