Palmer Inboard Marine Engine

Does anyone have experience with Palmer Inboards? They used International Harvester but it has "Palmer" stamped on the tranny....am putting this in my 68 Columbia 36' sail boat....

Re: Palmer Inboard Marine Engine

I ripped mine out...cause the manifold was done and no replacements are to be found other than that they are great engines similar and or better(some say) than the common atomic 4

I was about to rebuild mine but bailed.

what info are you looking for? I saved some pertinent links a while back if your interested

Re: Palmer Inboard Marine Engine

you have a lot of info there...gaskets to go is where you get the new copper head gasket made as if steel it will corrode in no time

you also have a page for parts, where to get the electronic ignition, also the place that sells the harvester overhaul kit with pistons, rings etc...

and exhaust drawing for a dry stack system I beleive and other links for the pumps and whatnot...

hope it helps
