I have an Atomic 4 for sell as a motor or for parts.
I bought a 1972 Grampian Sailboat and I assume this is the original engine.
A good mechanic in Hertford, NC told me the #3 intake valve is frozen. He could not get the head off(seems that the boat was severely neglected for a few years prior to my purchase and the engine sat half submerged in salt water for sometime.
I have pulled the engine from the boat. All parts from exhaust, a new solenoid, new fuel pump, new impeller, unused box of all gaskets, to the block are included; really everything from the engine that was there when I bought the boat.
I ran the engine for 100 miles down the ICW before it would not run anymore. It ran great (aside from the problems of the intake valve)for those 100 miles.
It is salt water cooled and is near Morehead City, NC.
I really do not know how much to ask. I am thinking to begin around $400 and see what happens.
