Thanks Mark, I did not like the look of the oil that I drained out it seemed to be congealed / lumpy I had a similar problem with a perkins 4108 engine oil due to it running cold so flushed with diesel but happy with the kerosene fix. I hope to start reassembling the engine in the coming weeks with the rebore complete but i am sure I will put a few more questions to the board.

Thanks again

I would think the outboard date as Mercman stated would be correct for the Kingfisher. See the photo ( members boats ) I posted of the factory production line with a few kingfishers in the finishing section.
Great photo of your pop, EH and boat.

Yeah, I see the other EH now.

On further investigation, I found over a quarter of a million EH's were built from 1963 - 1965.

In 1964 my Dad had an EH Station Wagon 179ci with three on the tree, as a Company Car. Dad travelled over 100,000 miles in that car before the first set of spark plugs were changed. His second Company Car was a HK Station Wagon 161ci with three on the tree. I was driving his HK around the local streets when I was only 12 years of age. Dads third Company Car was a HQ Kingswood Station Wagon 202ci with traumatic transmission. Arr... those were the days.

Thanks Mercman (again)!
Pop and his sons fixed up a bunch of EH's in the day. If you look closely there is one behind the boat in bits.
Wife almost got an EH ute for her first car. Ow how I wish…….

No expert on steering  A but the systems you referred to are the same . Depends on choice .

I installed the Multiflex in place of the 55 year old pulley system and what a difference. It doesn't come with a steering wheel (thank goodness).
You should be able to use the same wheel .
The important thing is cable length (see instructions)  as it comes in fixed lengths .

Still don't know what you current system is so as Mercman says you may only need new cable .

Send pics we love photos  Wink Smiley

As to House Paint . Gee you take me back a few years  Grin
