JanFeb 1995 - Everything is NOT displayed here - DOWNLOAD to see all (it includes another article, Part-2, on Marine Conversions (MarApr 1995)
Lehman Manufacturing of Newark, New Jersey (reportedly Ford's Marine Division), produced a variety of marine conversion parts and complete units utilizing the basic V8 Ford engine. This item is, supposedly, a front motor mount for a V8 60 hp engine. In some applications, starter motors were
mounted at the front of the engine for easier access.
Want 38% more horsepower? Want 35% more torque? Less vibration? Less fuel consumption? More driving power?
Then the McCULLOCH MARINE SUPERCHARGER was for you. "If you are looking for more driving force to your propeller, here is the answer! Because the McCulloch Supercharger is a power-driven centrifugal pump placed between the carburetor and engine, a greatly increased torque flow is produced for more acceleration and sustained drive. If speed is your aim, the Supercharger is a much needed addition to your power plant. The tremendous increase in horsepower places greater speed no further away than your throttle. This means greater speed and more cruising pleasure." Ford publication #7183, "Three Ford V8 Engines For Industrial, Marine and Farm Use", dated February, 1940, claimed, "A new world's record - 61.53 miler per hour - was established in the 225 cubic inch class by Don Kueneman of Oakland, California. The speed trials were under the auspices of the American Power Boat Association.To adapt the stock V8 engine for racing purposes, two carburetors ere installed, the compression was raised and magneto ignition was substituted for storage battery, distributor and coil."

JulAug 1996 - Something to THINK About.
Here are some facts that you might want to consider:
A 50-50 mix of coolant and water will give you a freezing protection of -34 degrees (34 degrees BELOW zero). This is what most coolant manufacturers recommend.
If you exceed 65% coolant to 35 % water, the freezing protection curve goes up - instead of offering more protection, it offers LESS!
For example: 100% ethylene-glycol for coolant will freeze at only +8 degrees (that's not good - about 42 degrees sooner!).
The MOST protection you can get is at 65% ethylene-glycol, which is -60 degrees.
