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

Yea the $4k went to Moyer. The thing that sold me on the exchange engine was that it was painfully obvious that my engine was horribly neglected and the Moyer engine came with all the updates. It came with electronic ignition, the electric fuel pump, the oil changing kit, the furled extensions on the water pump cover, just about every upgrade they offer on the site comes on the exchange engine. Not only that, I got a new starter, new carburetor with all its little extras. Add that up on the site and the deal gets even better!

I removed the engine myself and got it out into the cockpit and had the yard take that down and place the new engine onto the motor mounts. They charged me $50! So, it was really a nice engine swap and a refresh on the engine room. after seeing the mess in the thermostat housing, the Fresh Water cooling kit from Indigo was a no brainer. I also threw the external thermostat housing and she runs a very nice 175 to 180 degrees!

I have to say, Yesterday was the best this engine has ever run. i installed the Indigo prop. I gain a little drag but the engine really likes the prop! It was a great day on the Viking!!! 15 knots of wind 6-7 knots thru the water on just the head sail! We had some issues that delayed the beginning of our season so it was our first time out this year. Great great day!

We did the same thing for the same reasons! Love the Moyer exchange. A sweet engine.

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

Mark: I have installed rebuilt Atomic IV in Catalina 30, but took the cable connection apart on port side to lubricate large tranny cable. Lost my photo on this assembly so do you or anyone have a photo of cable connection at cockpit control lever which is inside port lazarette??? Would be so grateful for photo or diagram.
