Over the winter we drove Stinky’s Engine up to Dave VanNess for him to look it over and figure out why she wouldn’t go over 2,000 rpm. Well, as it turns out it wasn’t just one thing of course. It was several, including needing a valve job, rebuilt distributor and an upgraded carb.
The head was pulled and milled and repaired, and all her seals were replaced, freeze plugs and general go though. She was not in need of a rebuild, since it appears she is a low hour engine,but a definite clean up and go through. As Dave says now. She is a very strong and smooth running engine. Which we could not be more excited about. maybe this summer we will be able to now get some fun Stinky time on the water.
