    Atomic 4 Engine for sale

    I have just pulled my atomic 4. It has been reliably pushing my Tartan 34 through the water for 22 years, and I know it has many more good years to give. The only reason this is happening is because of a cruise planned next year
    with some sailing buddies to Newfoundland. I know the engine could do it ,but some persuading from my friends and the fact that they bought me a new beta 25 diesel won me over-(Ken was not impressed), but it was not an easy decision.
    The main reason for the longevity of this engine, I believe,is the fact that it is fresh water cooled.I did a compression check last year and Ken said there's nothing wrong with the engine.The starter and solenoid were rebuilt last year and every thing has been kept in running order. I did notice just before I took the boat out last fall, however, that the raw water pump will need a new seal- there is a slight drip.
    Included:spare impellors,spare electronic fuel pump, Racor fuel filter/water seperator, and spare belts. selling for: $1000.00

        You have friends that will just go buy you a $10K engine! I NEED to meet them
        The Betas are good engines, you should be happy with it. Also sounds like someone will be getting a good deal on an A4.

          Thanks Joe for your kind words,and you're right, they are great friends- if it wasn't for their support I might not be able to keep the boat going. Me and one of my friends are installing the Beta 25. It's been a lot of work, but hopefully worth it in the end.

              I think my friend Rich is the buyer. I may be helping him pick it up. As it happens I have a t34c whose A4 has been replaced by a Universal M25 diesel. Would love to see your T34
