Pictures of Transmission posted on flickr.com / johnt0911. Looks almost new, shifts, no signs of rust on bolts, or oil
weeping at seals
, spline in good condition, shift is smooth. Gear
ratio is 2.62. Oil
looked good when drained and no signs of water/metal/sludge.
I do not feel comfortable in selling the head unless to a local buyer and after a machine shop evaluation. Head looks good but all seats/valves/springs should be replaced as due diligence. Alternative is I can take it to a machine shop in Jacksonville
for an opinion and after inspection
you can decide if you want to make a very good deal on it.
Also, lot's of other parts
off the engine are available. I do not know how old the engine is or how many hours. The sailboat it came off has not been used for years and sits at the dock
on the St Johns River. Judging by the exterior looks and what I found when parting the engine out I would guess this engine did not have excessive hours on it and showed few signs of external corrosion
. The transmission looks like new as can be seen by the bolts in the interior
of the flywheel housing. The other parts look as good.
