We encounter a wide variety of engines in our business, spanning a broad time frame. We have significantly increased our mechanical capabilities, to provide even more peace of mind for our customers. From World War One surplus-vintage Hall-Scott and Liberty engines, to Chris-Craft six cylinder engines, to fifties and sixties Chrysler Hemis and Chris-Craft 430 Lincolns, we have the expertise to restore and rebuild these performance icons of the past.
We have developed a large group of suppliers, and can usually find parts, if they exist. If they don’t exist, we have an equally large number of reliable suppliers who can fabricate everything from Gar Wood Liberty V-12 transmission parts, to bracketry to accommodate a modern alternator. In addition, we offer the ability to re-power with Crusader or PCM engines. For the customer who demands the turn-key reliability of a modern, fuel injected power plant, this is the best option. In this instance, we usually recommend rebuilding the original engine, and preparing it for long-term storage. Then the boat could eventually (and easily) be returned to its’ original power. As we find parts becoming more and more scarce, rebuilding now is the most cost effective option.
