Early 40 PDP help

Postby Steve B » Mon Jul 20, 2009 2:02 pm

I've had a broken RC boat since I was kid and now want to get it going for my kids ( ok and me!). The engine last ran in approx 1979 and is an early PDP 40. It then had the head removed but all the bolts sheared as it had been run in the sea etc. It's in good condition otherwise, but I need a new crankcase which I see is in process part 10-1005 I believe. Are these likely to be available soon or am I better off getting a new engine? Also, looking at some of the pictures, I'm unsure if the water jacket will fit as the cooling fins seem slightly different - maybe that's salt water? Thanks, Steve.

We have several crankcases for the HB I will post pictures this week.

Just look at the parts dept shopping cart again.
