Re: Raw Water Cooled for 35 Years?

Get a motor specific survey. Compressions are a must, not just if the guy has the gauges. If the core is in good shape, clean her out and replace all wearables to get off to a clean maintenance start.

Hours on a motor are only an indication. Ironically, low hour motors that sit for extended periods can be worse than well maintained high hour engines that are run routinely. A good mechanic can sort it out.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
