I'm not personally familiar with these, but comments on oldmarineengine state the block is based on the Herc ZXB3...
Patrick Keefe reportedly bought all of Jerry Biro's Herc ZXB parts in 04 or so, and now seems to be doing business as, rebuilding engines (but apparently not selling parts less than kits?) per that website... is still on the web--Parry furnished blocks to Buchanan in later years and took over engine rebuilding...
For ZXB parts I have:
Ron Goller 419-784-144;
Universal Auto Parts 1-800-422-0303. These date from 09; they were mentioned in other posts.
You might also try the BF Avery tractor club; their model "V" (47-51 or so) used the ZXB, but you see lots more people looking for ZXB parts than selling them.
Have you checked with Jerry Biro, or the above as to whether any such parts from other smaller Herc engines might be the same?? With sympathy, Bud
