  • 224 Transom, Bottom, front hatch, windshield, TANK

    I am going at from outside and need opinions on best way to remove outer skin. I went today to purchase some cutting disks for the grinders, but wonder if circular/skill saw at proper depth is the best option? I have researched a few recent jobs and of course they start with skin on ground or sawhorses. I am pulling the motor and starting destruction Saturday (dedicating entire weekend) and hope to have core removed with 2 full days of work.

    I like using an air die grinder with a thin 3 inch abrasive cutoff disk on it. this thin disk doesnt waste much material in the kerf. Do you have a decient air compressor?? if not an electric dremil tool might work but there pretty light duty. I did mine from the inside. but not sure how I will do the next one. Thankfully Steve did all the hard work for me on my new 224. dave

        Rockwell also makes a "multimaster" knockoff. Need to borrow mine? If you supply the beer, I'd be happy to stand around, watch you work, and tell you what you're doing wrong []

          Also, do you have an engine lift and stand? I have a stand, and I still have Artie's lift from when I did my engine swap.

            Yes Dave I have a descent compressor and die grinder...



            Not as nice as many here, but should handle this job ok (2HP, 150PSI, 33 gallon, . I started looking and cutting discs and they were labeled masonry, metal, concrete and I really wasn't sure which route to take. The metal was the thinnest, but wasn't sure if it was good option - hence the question.

            With electric dewalt angle grinder, compressor and die grinder, and good circular saw I feel I can get the job done and the expense of the multimaster isn't justified.

            Edgar if you get bored and want to watch the destruction I hope to be working all weekend, and other than a good laugh I can provide a cold beer [].

              I have a buddy scheduled to bring lift and help Saturday morning, but if that falls through I might reach out for the lift. I plan on going to Artie's Friday to get a stand to put the motor on and his bracket to attach to wheel to lift with.

                Need me to pick up the stand and bracket? I drive within 10 minutes of Artie's every day on the way to and from work. If so, it will have to be tomorrow. I'm taking Friday off.

                    Chuck if you go the cutoff tool route I use the thin ones made for steel. they slice right in and you can follow a pretty good strait line if your careful. Dont forget mask and gloves, and long sleeves.

                      And safety glasses, I had one of those things come apart doing that and was wearing a full hood with a respirator and a piece of that thing hit my shield. [:0]

                              Chuck - what type of bracket? Twin hub or single? I know you have a single engine but the more the better on a 224....
