I assume that you are talking about the Palmer P-60. The engine is derived from an International Harvester C60 tractor engine. Some of the marine parts are peculiar to the Palmer engine and CANNOT be gotten from a tractor supply and of course Palmer went out of business in 1975. Here are some of the critical parts that can only be gotten from salvaging a scrapped engine'
Exaust manifold (most critical).
Water pump housing
water hose fitting (atop cylinder head)
