    Well, I got the port side engine running last night. I replaced the old copper fuel line with USCG approved fuel line all the way to the tank. I blew back down the lines and siphoned gas up through the fuel pump. The engine started right up and ran great. Except for the squeal when I give her gas. I am working on buying a new belt for her. BAH! I forgot my gas cans yesterday to try and work on the other engine, but I will try and do that tonight or this weekend.

    Success!!! Both engines are running great. I plan on pulling the boat this weekend before something else happens.

    I want to, but with my luck this year I don't want to test it. I am going to get her oil changed and antifreeze in her. Then go about ripping out the old tanks.
