got a chance to buy 3208ta 435 hp short money 6000. around 4000 hrs on rebuild no issues going to put in 35 bruno and take out 453 dd thinking about hooking to to td 1 1/2 to 1 with trolling valve THoughts ? thanks
how about a 3116 with 1200 hrs that needs injectors reseated? 5000. on site for sale? THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT THANK YOU
If your run @ 2400 RPMs you will be getting approx. 235 HP. If you have your heart still set on that 435 HP. then wheel the boat so you turn 3000 RPMs and the load with be similar to a 375 HPThanks GUYS................ question;if i go with a 375 horse ,running speed is going to be that of 300 horse ?
I just put a rebuilt 3208 435hp in my AK gillnetter. Heading up from CA to AK tonight to get the engine hooked up. BoatDiesel and SBmar.com guru Tony A, coached me on the purchase and said if you prop it to 375hp specs at full load, it would be good for the normal 3208 life span. I saw no fear in purchasing it..... check out boatdiesel for lots of good tech tips.
Thank you .... it going in 35 bruno 350 horse what are you running for gear and prop? running speed? and gph thanksi'd go with that, has more torque than a 3208, and burns waaaaaaaay less fuel. i have a 3126 myself, more or less the same motor. getting injectors reseated not a big deal if they still fall into spec, if not the seats need to be changed, sometimes easy, sometimes not. i have it in a 35 bruno. and it's lighter
