Free Atomic 4 stuff Seattle

Free to anyone who wants to take it away. I've got one atomic 4 taken apart (the mechanic went to jail before starting the rebuild) and a second one (siezed) for parts. The latter was fresh water cooled that I got for the block as mo original was raw water cooled. Changed plans and got a Beta diesel.

I want your Atomic 4

michael.paulson@comcast.net

My son is buying a boat with a dead Atomic 4, so if the engine is still available I would take it away this weekend! He'd be very grateful!

A-4 stuff

I am looking for a rebuildable A-4 to replace the one I have now that is not going to last much longer. Do you still have one available?
Cheers
Pat

Question In need of Atomic 4 parts / motor

Hi! I have an Atomic 4 that starts easily but runs v. rough. It has some new parts, but has a cracked head and has been raw water cooled (mostly salt) for about 30 years. So - I am guessing the corrosion is really bad inside. Looking for good condition block / other replacement parts that would have been damaged by corrosion. I can drive pretty far to pick up &/or work in trade. Looking to spend v. little $!

Any ideas about how to proceed are appreciated. The boat currently has an outboard. Compression on this motor was 105/113/95/108 in 2007. At that time the waterpump was rebuilt and new fuel tank & filter installed.

I live close to Seattle but not working so could drive fairly far to get it.

Ian

Here's what I have: A raw water cooled A4 completely disassembled. A fresh water cooled A4 with the head taken off. It had been submerged so that while it looks OK the pistons are stuck in the cylinders. I've been soaking them with penetrating oil but what Moyers says needs to be done is to be done is to take off the lower block and so they're free of the crankcase and knock them out with a wood block. I also have a the ancillary equipment, e.g. rebuilt starter. I've got a repolacement so the deal is free if you take everything. I live in Kingston accross from Edmonds.
