Note to self: If approached to replace engine one of these, come up with a stupid number, double it, at 10% more, then pray they don't take the bait.

I pulled it out of the shop @ 5:00. Another 2 hours and it can be shipped out. I'm having an issue with setting the timing. There is a msd timing controller that I need to disconnect and try again. The light is very erratic and shows like 40 of advance and that ain't right. Once that's done its clean out time and reinstall the coach furniture.

Total estimated time was about 32 hours of engine related work and no more than 4 hrs for the interior R/I. I dont want to do another one over a weekend ever again.

It seems wrong that there is no metal flake paint on that.

They would still do it. I have the boss pad estimates on a couple he agrees will be a nightmare. The customer still buys it.
