|Universal / Hercules engine questions
|Posted on Wednesday, November 10, 2010 - 11:42 am: ||
I've got a 1954 Universal Unimite 70hp engine and v drive transmission in my 1954 Marinette 28. The engine is seized and has had water in the crankcase. I know the Unimite is a Hercules XIB 4 cylinder.
I have found a couple of Chris Craft Model K engines in running conditions. I know the K is a Hercules QX 6 cylinder.
Does anyone know how difficult it would be to adapt the Chris Craft K to the Unimite v drive?

Would probably be far cheaper to rebuild the IXB. Has the engine been salt water used? If so, the type of cooling system may determine the practicality of rebuilding. Just some thougts to consider.
