Thanks John for the more details on how to replace the bearing in the pilot assembly. It was very easy.

I took the assembly all apart and cleaned old grease out. Made sure the zerc fittings still worked then put it all back together.

After my son took everything off the powerhead a few days ago, here is where I am at now.

Cylinder walls look and feel great, Pistons look great too. I will be replacing the rings, all needle bearings and upper and lower main crank bearings and seals, and upgrading to carbon fiber reed valves.

One of the main bearings was shot, glad I got to it now. And a lot of carbon build up behind the exhaust cover.

Looks good. Nice paint booth. There’s nothing better than a newly rebuilt old motor on your boat.

good stuff........at 12" maybe some old flannel sheets cut too size or ya pick up some cheap chinese furnace filter's too cover the face.........if ya plan on doing alot of spraying..........they will at least save the motor's....and not change the color of your shingles.........:arrr:

side note for my friends of the south........Flannel is what we use in the winter for bed sheet's.........with the way things are going, i may buy share's and start a franchise, and start exporting...........:hmm: :biggrin:

I have (6) 12" Schaefer exhaust fans in my shed and together they move a lot of hot air out, fast... I think they are 700 cfm. I got them from my work, we sell them as a shed accessory.
I modified them to work in the existing roof vent hole.
