Selling a vintage marine diesel engine. It's a Palmer marinization of an International Harvester 6cyl Diesel Engine. Likely 1950's vintage.
We're still trying to pin down the model number of the engine. Thanks for being patient. The ID plate/decal is elusive on this one.
The transmission is a PARAGON with Hydraulic reverse gear. Model #HF7D-L Serial #5G172
Been sitting for a few years since she was pulled form a commercial boat, so she could use a going through, but she's not seized, and does turn over by hand. I know for sure the fuel pump needs a rebuild.
Would be a shame to scrap her out. Palmer Marine manifolds are hard to come by. She could be put back to work quickly, or would be an ideal candidate for a vintage wooden boat project that deserves a powerplant with way more panache than a Chevy small block. Or you could de-marinize it, and put it in a truck/tractor/bus, wich is where it would have gone had Palmer not converted it.
Motivated seller. Local pickup only. Will help load into your heavy-duty trailer or large truck (she's heavy!)
Available for inspection.
