Harding MOB, ford sabre,Castoldi jet 06
I managed to get a hold of a 1985 Schat Harding man over board fast rescue craft, Its a bit of a lump to say the least and is fitted with a ford sabre 212 and castoldi jet 06, It doesnt look the prettiest but it doesnt have to for what im going to use it for, any way i have done alot of work to it so far and its nearly ready but im looking for a bucket for the jet, the one i have is missing a junk out of the bottom right corner, its a single curved plate and not the one with the 2 side exit scoops if you will.(already looked at the spares list on lancing marine)
I have a guy who is going to weld my bucket but im not convinced it will last so maybe sourcing another one would be the best idea,
I hear on ribnet people asking if you jet unit has an intergrated gearbox, well im not sure what is ment by this, my own has a dog gear behind the cover for engaging the impellor and you can disengage it and run the engine with the jet in nuetral but does any body know if it is safe to engage gear while the engine is running or would you have to switch off.
Any help on this or any info any you guys have on any of what i have would be great as i know very little.
P.S will get some pics up when i get home in a couple of weeks
