Here's a few pics of a Cummins 6BTA 330 with a high mount turbo attached to a ZF vdrive.

Missing on the engine is the heat exchanger.

The engine is out of the boat for a "spruce up paint job" !!!

An engine/trans package like this would look real nice in

Goodchance's 32 Holland rehab boat down in FL.

Oh, by the way, what ever happened to Chris' project???????

Nice, we did a Bertram with a single I/O. I also saw a single inboard (straight gear) out of FL.

My 1st boat (1991) was a late 60s 25 Bertram Hardtop with twin 3.0 4 cyl merc outdrives.
Nice hull, classic looks, outdrives were so problematic that is when I made the decision NEVER to own an IO again.

Thinking back a 6BTA 330/370 ZF vdrive would have been a sweet package in the old Bert!

The expansion on a Cummins should be higher than the highest point in the cooling system,in this case the turbo.Note the two vent lines going in the tank on the starboard side.Most engines just have a bleeder valve,but the open vent assures no hot spots in the turbo or manifold.Some times there is a third vent from the thermostat housing.

Exactly,
The height of the tank is no issue in this install. The engine package is under the center console.
