Engine is back together after a full rebuild and is on test on the bench and being tuned.  Back in the water on Monday.  Fingers crossed

Thanks Paul, and Wild and Wet I don't know, its a learning point for me, if I ever have an engine stood for a while i'll get a strip down before launching.  

Anyway the engine is coming back together well, just waiting for a head gasket that didn't exist in Turkey, a few more days then hopefully as good as new.

thatís bad news.
Why they didnít a compression test before take out the engine the first time?
With a damaged mix elbow thereís a chance  of this problem ,I think 🤔
I will remember this when I have to take out our engine.

Hi Mark and Catherine, sorry to hear that, not good news after all your hardwork. But at least you found out now rather than when it might have been a big problem.
We replaced our exhaust elbow with a stainless steel one a few years back when we too had to have the engine out, so far so good.
We re-launched yesterday after an anti foul and gaiter replacement, so looking forward to some good sailing soon
Good luck
Paul

So we launched only to find we were running on only 2 cylinders due to a pooly seating exhaust valve, so the engine is back out and being rebuilt.

Amazing what you can get done in Turkey, my rear logos were a bit battered, so now I have new ones!

Boat goes back in the water tomorrow for engine tests.
