Got the engine cover and back center section out - greased rudder and steering knuckle. Had a spot on the back that I guess I or We had scratched working on the course; sanded with 2000 wet, shurhold compound with Shurhold buffer/wool pad - then all the back got done; used Meguiars 205 on microfiber pad, followed by Wolfgang Swirl remover, followed by Wolfgang High Gloss Sealant. I'll wax it tomorrow. Also painted swim platform brackets. Moving the alternator is going to require a new raw water pump mounting bracket, just ordered that.

Got the lower thermostat section off and the water pump. See attached photos: the LT1 water pump has a "coupling" if you will which attaches to the spline on the pump and the spline off the gear of the engine. I hope PB blaster does it's job overnight. BTW, even though the pump was not making noise, when I rotated it by hand, it sounded like there were no bearings left after 28 years - guess that's not bad

This looks amazing. I'm wondering if this is bonafide Deckadence flooring or a Deckadence-like woven vinyl mat. Either way, did you buy one huge piece of material or are those two pieces laid perfectly side by side?

Thanks in advance.

Coat of paint on New Water pump, lower thermostat housing, stand off spacers, new alternator bracket, install new thermostats, and put in new sensors. Changed IAC, taking off old alternator bracket tonight.

Got the tall alternator mount off and will need a 2 9/16" spacer, plus lower bracket to get alternator mounted. Will also need a spacer off the other alternator bracket to set correct depth for raw water pump bracket arm. Got both plugs out of the heads, so the cooling update will get done the right way now that the tall alternator mount is gone. Not sure when they went to lower alternator but I wish I had had one rather than doing all this BUT, once it gets done it will be good.

Back up and running! Still have to get second bracket for alternator and that will facilitate getting the bracket for the raw water pump complete.
