Engine and Drive Train / Sound deadening
« on: February 09, 2017, 02:22:35 PM »
Repowering my boat. Yard is going to give me some time between yanking MD 11c and installing new lump to dress up engine compartment. Want to get rid of old sound deadening as it is crumbling. Yard suggests Soundown products, but kinda pricey. Any suggestions?

Engine and Drive Train / MD11c/Beta
« on: December 13, 2016, 05:20:28 PM »
Looks like I have decided to bin the old MD11c in favor of a new Beta diesel. I understand that the Walter v-drive may not mate up. Has anyone, or do you know of anyone who has fashioned an adapter so the Walter unit can be used. Or am I going to have to go with the Hirsch unit?

Looking for jugs and heads for an MD 11c. Anyone got anything laying around? Know where I can find some?

Ports & Hatches / Head and V Birth Ports

What is the brand of the opening ports , the four found in the head and V birth. Black, about 12 inches wide, black knobs that turn to lock. I need two lenses and would like to replace gaskets.

Engine and Drive Train / 323 Repower
« on: August 03, 2016, 09:07:21 PM »
I bet this topic has been covered ad nauseum, but want to turn the MD 11c into an artificial reef and Repower. What is the easiest way to go? Beta engines have my interest. Is there one that is a direct replacement, mounting on existing mounts and mating up to the Walter v drive. Money is not an obstacle, it's why I work in my retirement. Just don't want to cobble up the boat.

Engine and Drive Train / MD11c water leak.
« on: May 02, 2016, 07:17:04 PM »
Anyone out there pull an MD 11c apart, or know of a knowledgable mechanic who works on them? On the intake/exhaust side of the engine, there is a tube that runs from bottom of block to head between the two cylinders. Mine is weeping water. Can't find a replacement, but could probably get one made. Anyone know how to get this out. Does one or both heads have to be removed to do this. Can't find any posts on this anywhere.

Have a Peters and Russell galley hand pump. Diaphragm inside has gotten smaller from use, and does not create suction like it should. Anyone know who has replacement parts?

Electrical Systems & Electronics / Moor Electronics

Anyone have any experience with Moor Electronics sailing instruments? They offer direct replacement for Datamarine, price is right, and made in good old USA.

Interior Structures / Table Post
« on: September 09, 2014, 08:05:36 AM »
Does the post that the table rides on serve any other purpose other than to support the table? If removed, does it jeopardize the integrity of the cabin top? If removed, would put a piston mount on table to raise and lower it. Removing the post could open up the cabin a little.

Exterior Finish and Fiberglass / Cabin Stripe
« on: May 29, 2014, 09:06:56 PM »
Any ideas on how to bring a shine to the chalky gray cabin stripe, and then keep it that way?
