Re: $6,600 to rebuild Atomic 4? replace/rebuild

Moyer gets between 3000 and 6000 + dollars for a rebuild

Now I know your spoiled because you live in a freshwater area BUT I own TWO saltwater A4s and even with the unit in Seafever having been converted to FWC 30 years ago

I can assure you unless you can drill out bolts much faster than me you will not have one apart in 10 days let alone 10 hours because I had to use supreme caution to break as few things as possible to return it to its current state and that was still over about 2000 in parts as I forgot about all the stuff I used from my second motor and did not have to buy

Stuff like rust wiping out the seal area on the output coupling Is a 65 dollar part and it just keeps going up till you hit a pretty big number

If seafevers block had needed a bore job you would have had to drill out ALL 18 studs and a whole bunch of other stuff to get it to the point it could even be put in a boring machine





mucho rust




The donar motor saved me mucho money




The motor mounts that now move ,water pump that pumps and valves SO you can service the impeller without dumping the antifreeze was over 600 dollars alone

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
