    Looking forward to seeing some shots when you get around to it Bill. In the meantime, I have "archived" the next generation of Warlock's ( 25, 27, and 29 ) in the Other Boats For Sale Section. Btw, and not to be a wiseguy, but you should change your sig line to Team Warlock. The "Team" means it was built by Tom Stolarz whereas just Warlock means it was built by Carter Reed.

    Greg,
    I can't change my old name which is also the name on my Eliminator - . Yes, I will post pictures in a couple days of the engine which is almost complete now. The new double oil cooler has worked out well, but it is a pain rigging it into the engine compartment. Bill

    I made and installed the final ss hose this afternoon. I might be finished in the engine compartment by tomorrow - yippee! I couldn't count how many times I have been in and out of the back end of the boat - . Bill

    The new engine with all the new hose routing and new double oil cooler is about done. Also, the Lightning headers and intake manifold were powder coated silver. I think it turned out fairly well. Bill

    Bill, with respect to the engine and what it ended up needing, was there a pretty good package to work with or did it require a full rebuild? I bet you are looking forward to getting it back in the water, and I'm sure you will tell us that the temps down your way are in the 70's

    Scratch that question, I just re-read the entire thread and saw your and Leon's comments. I know that you are coming up on your 1 year mark for owning the boat so I suspect you are getting anxious to run her. I have kept my eyes open, thinking I would find another 28 Offshore over the last year, but nothing so far.

    Greg,
    Yes I hope to run it at least once again this year - today would have been great with a high of 75! Leon's procrastination and pricing higher than quoted took a lot of the wind out my sail (sorry - took the octane out of my gas), but I bounce back. We installed a new Callies Gorilla crank, Callies Ultra rods, a new Cam Dynamics custom ground cam, and new 1.7 ratio rollers, but almost all the other parts were fine. This whole ordeal did leave me knowing exactly what I now have and I was able to improve the wiring and plumbing. No other 28 Offshores for sale? Cool! Bill

    Rocky,
    Thanks. You are working on one of my favorite boats. I absolutely loved mine with no problems over the 5 or so years I had it - it was a rock! I once pulled 5 barefoot skiers behind the beast. Bill

    I don't know, I'm thinking Bill's last name might me Murray.

    Bill - That cig 20 was sweet looking. The rebuild on the Warlock motor sounds good (except for the fact that it had to be done) I hope you get it out soon, it looks sharp. Obviously you know this but I would dump the oil after the first 5 min start up and again after the first run just in case there are any old metal shavings hiding. Good luck.

    You guys have me confused with a playboy dancing to KC and the Sunshine Band - . OK, that might have been the case back in the day. Not Bill Murray, but I sometimes used to be accused of looking like Gene Wilder - .
    Marshall,
    A friend actually highly suggested getting rid of the old oil cooler for that very reason. He did not think cleaning it would get all the metal out. I did change the oil after the dyno run as soon as I got it back. Thanks for the tip though. You convinced me to change the oil and filter after I run it for the first time which I am hoping will be before the end of the year (80 for a high today).
