Glen-L Hot Rod - 355 Startup

If you're installing a marine engine, I recommend ordering Glen Witt's book Inboard Motor Installations.   All aspects of inboard installations are covered in easy-to-read non-technical language.

Inboard Motor Installations by Glen L. Witt and Ken Hankinson.

Inboard Motor Installations by Glen L. Witt and Ken Hankinson.

It's a real honour to have photos of our engine installation on the cover of one of Glen's books.   See the top row and bottom left corner of the book cover.
