CONVERSION KIT FITS
Chevy based small block V6/V8 engines 262-305-350 CID both sterndrive and inboard. Especially designed for the low capacity raw water pumps used on sterndrive engines. Will NOT fit most engines with high mounted alternators such as late model OMC engines and/or v-drives. Separate kits are available for those engines. Some engines have fuel line routing and fuel filter location that must be changed slightly. Heat exchanger is 4 1/8" x 23.5" long and fits within overall length, width, and height of most engine conversions. Heat exchanger extends from extreme starboard side of a normal exhaust manifolds toward port side clearing most high mounted power steering pumps if any. See above illustration. Plastic expansion tank mounts either on front of heat exchanger or if space is limited on vertical surface next to engine.
