Re: 1970 aq170 marine engine. 170 hp inline 6cyl. (khbern)

Welcome to Swedespeed, depp.<p>If possible take some pictures of your 3-carb setup and post them here...<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=119272" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=119272</A><p>...as this may be of interest to the 164 crowd.<p>Indeed, finding a marine B30 in good shape won't be easy. A car-based B30 would work just fine in your boat but you would need to swap the starters and other marine-only items.<p>Most junker 164's have bad engines so it may be easier to rebuild the existing engine if it needs just gaskets, valves, rings and bearings, etc.<p>George Dill
