Good day and happy thanksgiving.
Has anyone any information as to how to convert a p-60 currently raw water cooled to fresh water cooled?

Thank you,

Eugene

Whew ! I hope that you are a crackerjack mechanic. Indigo Electronics makes a kit for the Atomic4 which is similar to the P-60 but the kit utilizes a bracket that the P-60 does not have. You'd have to jury rig a bracket to run one of the pumps. There are a few Palmers that were rigged with fresh water cooling but they are a rare few among a dying breed. In the meantime, setting up a fresh water flush connection is a good move to gain some longevity out of it.

Moyer marine sells one which also works, the only real challenge is powering the pump. You may need to add a drive pulley. Although I do believe you can now get 12 volt water pumps.

Mr. Coccone
Conversion to fresh water cooling will require a heat exchanger capable of at least 30 Hp to handle the cooling requirements under load.
You will also require a second water pump capable of at least 10 GPM to circulate sea water thru the heat exchanger and out the exhaust.
If you wish to pursue this, you can contact me directly at h.taylor@catec.com
