Ran kan kan….Azuuuukar!

Hey Y’all! I blasted to ol’ Zoot yesterday (Thursday…whoops, late for work again. When I got there the traffic was stopped, protest and banners all over the place… I thought the place closed down! But it was just some hoopla for an old prime minister and everyone (and I mean everyone!!!) from politics was there with their body guards and chauffeurs and their mothers too…yeeesh)

Raw water pump shaft is held by a cir-clip… gotta remove fuel injector pump as well. A photo reportage. Also the water pump had to come off and after a few hours and a few raki pops, Perkin’s tummy is naked!

  1. I’m dizzy just from looking at all the strewn parts…and are you sure you can put it all back together? Maybe that’s why you took so many pictures. I hope to never see my engine’s inner organs, although I do have to change the gear box soon – but compared to your task, that seems like child’s play now. Good luck with the slaving.


    • Answer to first question is NO (as in Tardar grumpy cat). I got open projects and parts all over the place…even at home…aarrgg!
      question 2 is…TONS of pictures. I need a better camera especially for close ups..
      I don’t want to see your inner organs and it’s child’s play when you got Kastas. I couldn’t have done it without him. I couldn’t be in better hands. Actually slavery has become everything else from the boat.
