But other than paint (which doesn't make it run any better lol) I figured I would give it something nice to pull.. how did I do?

Gonna retire in 1 year, and as j martin says (To fish or not to fish? What a stupid question.) and the deal was to good to pass up. I did find out that I needed a new fan clutch and thermostat though on the first trip out...

Give it enough to pull so it doesn't get bored. Put a fiver between the truck and the boat.
