MD11C Replacement

Hi Leroy,

I ordered the Beta 28 on Monday with a 3 week delivery estimate. I'm told that the engine availability is not the problem, but the transmission/v-drive that goes with it is delayed until about the end of the month.

MD11C replacement

Hi Leroy,

I just got the engine out today. I have been unable, up to now at least, to separate the V-drive from the transmission part you want, and unable to break loose the 4 allen head screws holding the lot to the main block. If I can't get the V-drive off, but do get the whole assembly off the engine block, you may have to take both pieces and solve the separation problem yourself. Anyway, I will keep trying to break the bonds on these parts so you can get them. It may be a lot easier now that the engine is out of the boat.

I want to post somewhere on this forum that I have an MD11C engine with a lot good parts and want to get rid of them as quickly as possible.

Neil

I am willing to take the whole assembly. I used BP Blaster a few times before attempting to back out the bolts. If you can get it fairly cheaply at an autoparts store and I have had great luck with it.

Hi Leroy,

Ok. I will take another crack at getting the transmission and v-drive off tomorrow morning. If I do get the transmission off by itself, I will weigh it and try to work put shipping. I can take the part(s) to the UPS store and get an estimate on cost, which I will do as soon as possible. Give me a zip code for the shipping estimate.

Hi Leroy,

I got the transmission out. It weighs about 37 lbs by my bathroom scale. Tell me where to send it.

Hi Neil,

I'm also faced with having to do a repower of my P323, and I'm looking for ideas on how to cut out the fiberglass column in a way that allows re-attaching it in a non-permanant fashon so that it can be removed for engine maintenance. Can you post photos of how you cut and restored your column?

TIA

Hi Tia,

Getting the fiberglass column out of the way turned out to be very easy. I am ready to bolted it back in place. I have three cleats made of teak already installed, ready to have the column bolted to it. This is the last thing I have to do, and it will finish my engine repower job.

I cut the column using a hacksaw blade. If you give me an email address I will send you pictures. I have a picture from John Viera who just did the same job, with his column in place. I will include the picture he sent me.

Neil
