Wet Lincolns


I have twin Lincolns in my 1963 Chris Craft Conqueror motor boat. At 960 hours each, I am ready to rebuild them. They have 9.5/1 Compression, solid lifters, and the WCFB Carburetors. They bleed blue, and I am hoping that even though they turn propellors instead of Slicks, someone might have done this before. In the dark ages, I worked at an auto machine shop, so I am somewhat prepared for the deal.

Ford calls them MELs and assigns a CID of 431 even though they have 430 CID. They added the "one" for the switch to Alternators from PMG.

Any experience out there?

Re: Wet Lincolns

Not really, my step father and some friends used to race a boat that had a 429 slightly modified, but the engine was from a dragster, not sure where it came from before that.
