    OXE 150 at Miami Boat Show

    It’ll be an older boat. Are these older Hinos or Lehmans something to stay away from? I realize it all depends a lot on maintenance and hrs but I wouldn’t buy a well cared for vintage OMC either.

    Yeah I saw that to and was confused, I’m assuming one of those “blocks” should be a head.

    That would be sweet too. I look for diesel cruisers almost daily on Craigslist. I’m at least 2 years from another boat but I’m trying to get educated. I’ve got some wants that might be hard meet. 30-35’ LOA, under 12’ beam, “trailerable”, single screw diesel with a bow thruster or twin diesels. I don’t need a planing hull anymore. The more I look the more I realize this is a needle in a haystack situation lol.

    A pair of those as inboards in a 30-35’ Sedan Cruiser would be sweet.

    This must be the motor they are using. http://gmauthority.com/blog/gm/gm-engines/luz/amp/

    Using antifreeze?

    Repaired cracked head? Any details on where it was cracked and what was done to fix it. I have a cracked head on the shelf I might do something with some day. Pretty hard to blame Dodge for these issues. Everything you’ve listed seems to be related to your performance enhancements, I can’t speak for the Vp44s. I doubt you’d have had fewer issues doing similar performance modifications to a Ford or Chevy of this vintage.

    Very cool. Looks like the OXE reps also had enough of that guy by the time they got out of the marina lol. The fuel economy is amazing, not just for savings in the fuel bill but for extended range. If things go my way my next boat will have either a single or twin diesels but old school inboards.

    Trailer supply places ???

    I’ve ordered several times from etrailer and have always been happy with there service. Even when I had stupid questions.

    Builing a compound set up

    Good idea on the filter and cooler, put a drain in there somewhere too. I have a copper coil going to a line, through a filter and snubber to a gauge to measure drive pressure and get a lot of moisture in there. Once in a while it all needs to get drained and blown out.

    Winter weather

    Made the best of it yesterday afternoon. Kids played in the snow, warm(er) weather, food on the fire and good friends. The 14yr old wiener dog even came outside. He doesn’t like to be alone in the house when there’s things going on outside but he really hates the cold. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Builing a compound set up

    The only concern I’d have is if one port will flow enough oil for both turbos. If I remember correctly, looking down into that port the hole isn’t very big. I really can’t tellyou if it’s be an issue or not.

    Builing a compound set up

    Looks great! I noticed you T’d into the original oil feed port on the filter housing. I used the other port for the second turbo which seems to be what’s common. Not sure if there’s a real reason to do it one way or the other although I think the second port might be pre filter instead of post filter but I’m not 100% certain. Will the port supply enough oil for both turbos? I was surprised how much oil flows through these things.

    Wiring for new canopy

    I prefer solder and heat shrink. Sometimes I’ll pull the plastic off a crimp connector, crimp the wires, solder the crimp and put good heat shrink with the sealant in it over that.

    Headed there with the wife and kids at the end of March to meet up with my parents coming from Ontario and my brother with his family out of Calgary. I’ve traveled the world countless times but this will be my first real vacation to any place nice. Weather will probably be beautiful here by then 😂.

    I don’t envy you there Scotty. I’ll take the snow over the cold any day. That crazy cold you guys are getting breaks a lot of things and creates a lot of problems.

    I don’t mind it either. We have friends coming over today, I’ll have a fire in the back yard, cook some tube steaks and pull the kids around on the sleds.

    I could have powered through some of it and rolled it off to the sides. Problem with that is when the wind blows the trench just fills it again which is what happened this time. So I hauled some of it to a big pile and dumped a bunch of it on the south side of the driveway leaving the north side clear to avoid drifting. It’s kind fun...for a while.

    Today is the first time I’ve actually had to dig my way from one end of the driveway to the other. 4hrs of clearing snow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No 4WD

    I couldn’t agree more, plus not build a normal crew cabling box for decades. I’ve always preferred the body and interior of a Ford, especially a crew cabling bed dually but the Cummins overruled those needs.

    I was gonna say the same thing.

    Didn't know there was such a thing, thanks Steve. I park in the garage but it’s still only 40F in there, then I roll out into the cold. Would be nice to be warmer faster. I’ve been thinking about getting a winter front made at the upholstery shop that I can snap on and off. Found this. http://www.frostheater.com/frostheater.htm

    It sure is, till the fingers and toes get cold. Took a bit to get a trail broke through the field to the neighbors but we made it!

    Lot of shoveling and a bit more plowing today. Relocated a bunch of snow to cover up the bare gravel in the driveway and build a ramp. Good times! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    😂 I see the organic farmers roasting weeds with those things out here all the time. Seems to be pretty effective.
