Thumbs up First launch of Bluebird

Having bought Bluebird last summer I had to strip the engines down.
Finally got my engines back together after a full overhaul, running nicely now

Just had my first seatrail with her, loved every minute of it!!!

Nice job!

keep an eye on them belts/pulleys, once the toothed pulleys get a little corrosion, the belt life is short.

I think the failing of the 151/171 is when the water pump leaks, it corrodes the pulleys, then the belt fails.

Thanks I'm keeping a close eyes on those pullies, and also the saltwater side of the cooling system wich is pretty crap designed. Good strong motors though.
