I am searching for a the complete water pump assembly for this engine. I also do not have a carb. for it and question Schebler D or Lunkenheimer mixer valve. I also assume that I would use a 3/4 inch in both cases.I do have the oiler for this and now have it ready for installation. This is my first hit and miss engine resto so would appreciate your help in finding these parts. thanks

Looks like it needs a fuel injector to me.

Bill is correct, with the air intake valve that is on your engine now it probably originally had a fuel injector/reservoir. You can use a carb but you will need to remove the air intake valve and plug the threaded hole. Also plug the smaller hole where the injector went. Carb will have to have a one way valve in front of the carb and also should have a manual speed control valve. If you use a mixer that has a built in one way valve then you will not need to put a one way valve in front. Fuel injector/reservoir are hard to come by and usually go for high price like $300 or $400 on Ebay. The Lunkenhimer mixers with a one way valve and throttle control are also hard to find and in most cases also go for high dollar. Schebler carbs are easy to find on Ebay and swap meets and are a little cheaper on price. Water pumps are also hard to find. Wished I could help you with parts but I just do not know of any at this time. Good Luck.

One other point to make is that marine engines are not hit and miss. There is no governor so one it starts it will want to run at the highest possible RPM. You wouldn't want the engine to "run away" on you.
It will also jump around quire a bit so you'll also want to make sure you've got a good strong base to hold onto it.
So when ( not if) you get close to trying to start the engine, make sure you've got some easy way of killing the ignition.

If you do use a Schebler carb, there's a good description on how to set them up on this web site in the Technical Section.

Miro,

There are a few Detroit owners that are using carbs or mixers with out throttle controls and they claim they can slow the RPM to a idle using the timer lever. I have never tried it myself but it seems to me the engine might have a tendency to run a little hot at low speeds?
