Is there any place on line that I can get decent parts for an old MD7A 13HP engine. I need a Gasket kit, and starter. Thanks.

Of course, I don''t know the status of their current inventory but a call to Transatlantic Diesels would be worth your time. Perhaps you''ll have a nice chat with Sheri Moon.

John232,

I also have the MD7A in a boat I just bought, and would love to hear your impressions of it. It won''t change anything of course, since I am not about to replace it, but I would be interested in your experiences nonetheless. How do you winterize? Do you have the detailed shop manual? The long reach of the cooling water intake hose seems awkward. Have you had any problems with it?

drynoc: I wish I could share some information with you but I bought a Santana 30 a couple moths back that had a bit of water seep in the engine bilge so the first thing I did when I got the boat on land was to tear it down and check it for dammage, luckly the engine, its self, is in great shape, but I now need Gaskets, a new starter (or a rebuilt one),a thermostat housing would be nice to find and all the electrical is going to be trashed and replaced. So I will let you know how I like it when I get it running, hopefully some time this Summer. If you can tell me what YOU think of this engine then that would be a bit of encouragement coming my way which I will take and appreciate. Later.

John232,

I just bought my Santana 35 with that engine in it, and though it surveyed well, I don''t have any actual experience with it yet. I''ll keep you in mind as time and events pass.
