A few months ago we had a discussion about hydraulic starting of marine
engines. I had mentioned that I had seen some Perkins for sale
with hand pump hydraulic start systems. I just noticed that they are back up on the Portland Oregon
Craigs list. An interesting consideration for those of us that dont have much faith in electrics around salt water
. For day to day use, I would want one of the 12volt hydraulic pumps that raise and lower stern drives, set up to pressurize the accumulator, and use the hand pump if the electrical system
packs up. Portland
CR, search "diesel lifeboat" Just some food
for thought. ______Grant.
