Boats actually become more precious with the passage of time. The problem is that the modern specifications for marine engines are developing every day, so what can a boat owner like you do to make use of the modern technology and still keep your good old boat? It is very simple actually. Even an old engine or carburetor that dates from the 1970s can be converted into a perfectly up-to-date modern version.
Installing Fresh Water Conversions
A fresh water cooling system is modern technology for boats that is far superior to the raw water cooling systems that can wreck an engine in no time flat. This newer type of cooling system will prolong your engine’s life and keep it running smoothly. You’ll notice a significant improvement in performance, especially if you own a racing boat or love to speed in the open water.
Providing you have accurate information about the age and make of your boat, and the age and make of engine, you can expect a successful conversion. With the right parts and some detailed instructions, you may even want to have a go at converting your cooling system yourself. It can be very satisfying to do this kind of work yourself. You can order a conversion kit and start work in mere days.
The kit will contain all necessary parts such as a heat exchanger, surge tank, thermostat, hoses, and clamps. Once you have your new cooling system, your marine engine will no longer suffer the way it used to with the primitive, raw cooling system. It will not rust or suffer from scale build up, and you can expect it to last much longer.
