I will post a fuller account of all things engine when I get a moment and have got my brain in gear to describe all the technicalities. In the meanwhile, a few photos and closeups of it in all its glory.
Geoff and Martyn at Marine Power Services have done an AMAZING job. Truly, properly amazing. It’s goes without saying that the engine now works like the finely oiled machine that it was when it was first produced. However, the added bonus is that it now looks absolutely sensational.
Bronze, gleaming brass and a fresh coat of paint make it look proper smart. I can only imagine how much elbow grease, steam cleaning and hard work went into making what was a hunk of tarnished junk turn into this beauty. A real ugly duckling to swan moment.
