...might do the webcam again, but looking ahead you don't see much...

Unless you're the lead dog, the scenery never changes!

Sad to see another E9 bite the dust.....can't be too many of those engines left running in marine applications. Wish more of them had been properly marinized, it was a beast of an engine in the boats I saw it in.

I think there were only 13... I know I had one that bite the dust... When we had MACK from NH down, they knew the owner had 2 in his Hatteras or something, they still had 2 on the shelf in 2001/2002, not sure if that made 13 or 15. We just had a problem with exhaust manifolds and how the original setup for our manifold went back into the block. That line blew out twice and just did so much damage for us. I really liked that engine wish I had a little more time to learn it and tweak it. I think that was around 2300 hours or so for us. It was scary when we would call and they would tell us it was the last part available on the shelf.

Dale Frances in Ohio has all the regular parts for the mack but marine parts are few and far between . The marine parts can be made but they cost alot .
