Well, Tomorrow the proof is in the pudding...

Corey got information from ERL that my motor should ship tomorrow. Apparently they put it together with the new pistons and didn't like the crank counter weight to piston skirt clearance, so they took it back apart and clearanced these and then had to rebalance it and put it back together... I have to admit, I like the attention to detail...

I'm confident the motor will handle whatever we throw at it...

Progresss....

This is Brandi's new front end. It was developed for Robert by DreamWorks.

I think it's cool looking for a pure purpose, but there is no way I would drive with that on the street...

Ok, time for a lil bit of size perspective...

In the first picture, I'm laying on top of the wellhead connector housing, acquiring some identifier number off the top cap bolts...

Inside where I'm laying, to the right in the picture is a clamp, called a 27 hub clamp. This is used to hold the wellhead connector to the lower double of the BOP's...

In the second picture... I am sitting about where I was laying in the first picture, and the 27 hub clamp is what I'm sitting on... This half of a clamp probably weighs in around 600 or so lbs... The stack is also behind me in the second picture, where it had been above me... The connector, which is what the hub clamp is sitting on weighs in around 15000 lbs... The entire stack and upper portion combined weigh in around 380,000 lbs, and I've worked on one BOP stack that weighed in over a million lbs...
Suffice it to say I work on some really big iron, and by todays standards, I work on an itty bitty BOP stack... I have 9 working days left and finally I'll be able to get home... oh wait, I have a meeting to attend in Houma La. the day after I get off the rig, so I'll be home sometime Friday...
