Had a great Saturday evening out in the bay.

Keep going - it's not over yet

My season is. Awaiting new engine to be fitted. Over heated due to blocked intake on the leg, picked up a piece of plastic and over heated the engine, major internal damage so easiest and most economical option is a new block and too ends.
Didn’t have a bad season up until then.

Omg that's awful. Thought my turbo was bad enough.. no alarm ?
Have to say my alarm does not work. Just the warning light.

No, no alarm or warning light. Just gauge which I wasn’t paying enough attention to. First I knew of it was when it started to feel lumpy, looked down and saw gauges , cut then engine straight away but was too late, was very very hot.

Bummer. Sorry to hear that.

Had mine lifted during the investigations, got an airlock when went back in and overheated. Lucky was only in Itchen river, so seems I caught it in time.

Oh gosh Shibbs, that's aweful. On the bright side at least you'll get many good reasons now with a new engine.
Are you going for a block, crank and posting (short block ) and change over peripherals yourself?
