Yep yep yep. Our raw water pump
is a Sherwood(?) on the upper right of the block. If he's willing to offload the whole enchilada, I might be able to convince my Bro into springing for it. The cover for sure. Here's a pic below of the mess we had to deal with before we cleaned it up a bit. It's coming out shortly for blasting, paint
, and replumbing. Believe it or not, it runs. Had oil
in the water jacket and all the hoses had at least a quarter inch of "tar" caked inside. This came from the oil
leaking out the timing cover causing the engine to overheat, then boiling the water out the tanks
. The head
would warp just enough to allow oil into the water jacket. Took 4 days of our week in Florida
to clean it out and patch the cover. Now runs 169 deg at 1200rpm (prolonged) with no further oil intrusion. Haven't had the chance to fully load test as she was hauled out and shipped to Rockport,Tx. shortly thereafter.
"Behind every great man there is a woman, rolling her eyes."
But not for long! Now she's gone!
and peace and tranquility reign forever!
