Default Hi from the most easterly point in North America

Hi to all
I am new to the site and looking forward chatting with a few of you experts on old engines.
I am retired and just made a deal on a nice old Gray marine engine. Haven't picked it up yet but the deal is done.
It's a Gray 4 cylinder gas engine and transmission, the owner says 33 hp but we'll see. Didn't take any numbers off it but he had all the original equipment with her and the odometer reads 165 hours that is correct 165 hours this engine is in mint condition, came out of a lifeboat so that would explain the low hours. As soon as I pick up the engine I will know more and will post the info and maybe a pic or 2 if I can figure out how to do it. My plan is to build a pleasure craft suitable for that vintage engine and use it. I was told by the owner that it was a 1964 engine and came out of a lifeboat. That's all I know for now.
All the best and smooth sailing.

gday dave from the other side of the earth and about as close too the south pole as you,d get without being on a boat. Had a mate restoring a tender to a warship an "admiralty pinace" 16 feet from memory apparently they used to race them on the thames (london) had a really nice running scammel 4 cylinder with a wicked mag that was real scary as i reckon it could throw a spark about a foot long. He did a lot of work replacing rotten ribs e.t.c plus several hours getting the engine up and going , he was given the boat from another mate of mine who also had a box of new parts , valves ,guides ,springs and collets. many happy hours spent , especially when the motor burst into life after about two,and run strongly but BOY fuel must have been real cheap !!!!!. anyway hope your project works out to run like this baby did ... all the best graeme
