Well I been needing to do some maintenance on my inboard... I know it's not a home built boat but it has a nice 454 in it and some may find this helpfull in theirs.
SKIDIM sent me a flier, "12% off my next order" so I figured I should go ahead and get it in!
All the parts below arrived today but I'm at work so they are going to have to sit in teh house till I get home...
here's my list of goodies

The strut looks like the PO hit something and the cutlass is all worn out. I have checked shaft alignment twice now and it seems to be fine but I want to pull the shaft and check that it's not bent. I will be replacing the cutlass bearing with teh new white plastic style cutlass bearings. I'm curious to see how good they are. Since I'm pulling the shaft I went ahead and got me some new coupling bolts. I'm sure it's gunna be fun pulling the coupling off the shaft as the boat is a '91 and I'm sure it's never been removed...
I went ahead and got me a new belt too. I plan on putting the new one on and zip tie'n the old one to the water pump mount so that it's there in case of an emergency.
All the other goodies to freshen her up a lil. I plan on have'n teh camera at the ready and posting plenty of pics. hehehe
