I need some help here. I am purchasing a 1968 Bristol Trawler and the engines in this boat are labeled as Internationals but the literature that comes with the boat says they are Palmer PD-330s. The pictures of the two engines look the same but I can find zero info on either of these motors. Any help and resources would be most appreciated. Thank you all in advance.

Palmer used International Harvester engine blocks...they are one of the same. They also used Ford and Wisconsin blocks as well...

Doug, I sent you what little info I have on the PD-330. I have no Palmer or IHC maintenance manual.
the PD-330 came on stream late in the life of the company. The little advertizing material I have is dated 1971 the same year the company went out of business.
I would try to get hold of a copy of the IHC engine manual as Palmer was careful not to modify the basic engine. Everything they did was bolt on additions. Sorry I cannot be more helpful.
