    A couple more images of the work in process. Spray toolmakers dye, a die grinder, and patience make the job easy. If the weather is good Saturday the turbo will be out. If not a full shop day will push the 666 ahead.

    Default 666

    Very nice Tim. Will enjoy hearing it run. Maybe we could run it with the 75-H mod engine.

    Great idea - let's do it! Next year we will get Rich's six as well (perhaps others - Sam?), the sound of multiple six stackers on the course would be fantastic. Perhaps at the AOMCI Constantine meet? One thing for sure: We need a top quality videographer to record the views and sweeeeet music!

    Default Six MOD regata

    Count me in. If we could get 6 or so on the course it would be a thing to see.

    Ohhh, that sounds great! We need to find out who's got them...... Are any others willing to dust off Merc sixes to fill up the field?

    Whew-haa Dick,

    Your fleet of four would be awesome! The event should be open to any 75H, Mod, or Alky -Quincy loopers welcome! Any others interested to join?

    Default Mated to the block

    Here the roughed in crankcase is shown with the block. Much work to go.
