A melon with a dream...
Greetings all. I acquired an Atomic 5411 along with a Hurth HBW 50 for my boat ('69 Columbia 28) to replace the Atomic 4. I am considering having the 5411 rebuilt because I didn't hear it run and have no idea how many hours are on it, but I am wondering if there is any way to check it over while it's out of the boat? Compression test, etc.? I've never worked on a diesel. If it seems as though it might go a season or 2 I might just focus on the install for now and plan to rebuild in a year or 2. I am in Seattle... any local references?
