Got the shaft back from the metal sprayers today. Looking good all trued up. Installed -goes in from inside to out.New gland packing on inside-cutlass bearing outside not too bad and reinstalled the outer bearing with 3 new bronze lag bolts. Must check tomorrow on prop which is getting trued up and ballanced.
Went to Auckland today to pick up the EMCO-STAR more about that later!
Also picked up the 2 burner gas cooktop and 12v water pump to pump up to the 60l header tank.
