Stock #135925

Engine is about 40 years old

800-1000 gallon fuel tank capacity, will verify soon. There are two tanks. One fore & one aft.

The engine is keel cooled which is a self-contained cooling system. It cools the oil & transmission.

There are no hours on the transmission yet or the shaft with reconditioned prop.
