That is a big one! Hope the repair is solid on the diesel.

Maybe Australia and Texas use a common motto for some things. Specifically "Go big or go home".

Maybe he is using the same trick fishermen use to make their catch look bigger, have the camera really close to the catch. Either way, Glossieblack you must be very proud of having such a big box! :D :D

Ah yes... the "Florida push" as we called it when I lived much further from salt water and everyone went to Florida to go fishing. Now we just call it "damn tourists".

Don't forget the ZF Hurth 1:1 trannie is almost as long as the engine.

That is about as clean of an inboard install as you are ever going to see. And maybe more important it looks like you will be able to get to everything easy for maintenance.
