SC35,
You won't have to prim all the way to the injectors just to the fuel injector pump. You will have to bleed all the air out of fuel lines from your old tankage to the injector pump.
Remember, new clean fuel is very important!
Keep us all informed. This is exciting. Can't wait to hear how it runs.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Well actually if you are cleaver enough, you may only have to bleed to the filter bleed screw. It's only that small bubble of air you will introduce when you change the line from one point to the other. If you allow the engien to idle for awhile, the system can often cope with a small bubble of air and it can pass right through.

FYI - that's about what I paid for the new heat exchanger. Also I specifically ordered one that wasn't copper but was instead Cupro-Nickel.

I almost pulled the trigger on a larger exchanger but it would have meant moving a lot of things around - hope I don't regret it!

Hey Guys-Back from seeing the boat. The Perkins is a no go. Someone, at one time in the past, tried to get this engine going. They left the fuel filter off. , (I guess as a message to the next one to come along). No oil on dipstick, couldn't turn to break it loose. Looks and is donezers.

I can truck the boat here for $1,700, but my plan was to have something that would last a bit in the orig. engine. Possible saves me from spending good money into bad, but also places the major expenses up front.

What amazes me is seeing the general condition of the boats at that marina. Some examples, a 2006 30' Boston Whaler with a beard of barnacles. My potential gem had 18+" growths. Many other decent looking boats just left ragged. Like all the owners had emergency phone calls, docked their boat and ran. One had a garden hose from the dock spigot jumbled on his deck and appeared to have been there for a very long time. My guess is the typical maintenance plan is to drive past the marina to see if your boat is still there. Amazing, from a few people i met, those boats aren't running, just a place to sit on the river for a BBQ. Awful, awful shame I say.

BTW, I got a return call and the Beta guy says the swap out would be the 28 hose 3 cyl. Think it was about $6700, plus the adapter plate, plus, plus...

What adapter plate. Most ofter a repower package comes with a new transmission , harness and panel. Are they trying to reuse your trans?

The adaptor plate is to mate with the V71 drive. They can either supply me with a hurth or adapt to existing after it is rebuilt. Unfortunately, there were too many things going against me for this one, so its moot. But I'll say that you were correct on this with your initial opinion.

Maybe I can find something cleaner.

When your looking at crusing boats, and factoring a repower. Save your self some agrivation and get the complete package. Don't skimp and reuse anything. In the long run you'll have a better instalation and more useability.
