For Mercruiser Engines using Dry Joint Exhaust. By cooling your marine engine with antifreeze. This cooling kit includes everything needed to convert from cooling your engine with raw water sea water or lake water, etc.To cooling your engine with antifreeze. This kit will fit 4.3L, 5.0L, 5.7L and 6.2L marine applications using dry joint exhaust.
This is a " full kit " i. This cools the engine block & exhaust manifolds. On average, this kit will take 4 hours for installation. This kit comes with everything needed for installation (some components may have to be re-used off of your engine). Will this kit fit my engine?
Will fit Mercruiser applications years 2002-present. Fits small block GM engines (4.3L, 5.0L, 5.7L, 6.2L). Full Kit (cools block & exhaust manifolds). Designed for applications using a Dry Joint Exhaust Setup. Designed for serpentine belt setups.Designed for applications that have the alternator mounted high on the starboard side and power steering pump mounted low on port side. When calling, reference part number: MON-MFH-5320-B. 2002 - present MerCruiser GM 4.3L, 5.0L and 5.7L (262, 305 and 350 CID) model with a single serpentine belt/single-belt (will NOT fit v-belt or multi-belt equipped engines) Sterndrive and inboard (EXCEPT V-drive installations) For sterndrive applications, the power steering pump should be mounted low on the port side and alternator on the upper starboard side (For engines with the power steering mounted high on the port side and serpentine belt order kit MFH-5230). For inboard applications, the alternator should be located on the lower starboard side of the engine. Heat exchanger is 4-1/8" diameter x 23-1/2" long and fits within overall length, width, and height of most engine conversions (adds 1-1/2 to overall length of 2001 and newer MPI installations).
Heat exchanger extends from extreme starboard side of a normal exhaust manifold towards port side (see Figures 1-4). Plastic expansion tank mounts either on front of heat exchanger or if space is limited on vertical surface next to engine. Center State Engine supplies two kits, depending on the design of the exhaust system. If your applications is using a non-dry joint exhaust system, DO NOT ORDER THIS KIT.2002 or newer V6, V8 applications (serial #0M600000 & Above) and 2003 or newer V6 applications (serial #0M615000 & Above) were equipped with an exhaust system termed Dry Joint. You will need this kit which includes: two Dry Joint block-off gaskets, a lube oil bracket, a strap, and two fasteners. The Dry Joint gaskets are used on Dry Joint applications only and the lube oil bracket is required to relocate lube oil bottle that is mounted to the inside of the lift eye/power steering bracket (serial#0M640000 & Above). Older engines with the Non-Dry Joint require FWC Conversion kit # MFH-5320-A. That kit includes two standard block-off gaskets.
This kit is a full fresh water cooling [FWC] system; meaning that the engine block and exhaust manifolds are protected by the system. Exhaust elbows remain on the raw water system. System utilizes a unique, high performance heat exchanger with built-in full flow thermostat bypass control ensuring optimal jacket and exhaust manifold water flow and consistent temperature under all operating conditions.
Our FWC systems are specially designed for the low capacity raw water pumps used on sterndrive engines. Kit includes heat exchanger, heavy-duty translucent plastic expansion tank, complete instructions all other components necessary to convert a raw water cooled engine to FWC. Some existing water hoses and hose clamps are reused. Heat exchanger, thermostat housing and mounting brackets are finished in black. Fasteners are zinc/cadmium plated or stainless steel.
All hose clamps are 3XX series stainless steel. High-flow, shell and tube design allowing a higher cooling capacity than standard. All copper alloy construction made to the highest industry standards. Includes heavy-duty, dual, demountable end covers for easy clean-out.Will maintain coolant temperatures in the 160-170 F range using 160 F thermostat included in kit. System has cooling capacity safety margin higher than industry standards. Heaters such as galley water heaters and cabin heaters are easily supplied by utilizing the 3/8 NPT fitting on top of the lower heat exchanger bracket for the inlet. The outlet to the heater should be connected to a fitting on the engine circulating pump (normally a NPT thread). Average installation time is approximately four hours, assuming new engine and normal accessibility. Allow additional time for filling and testing. Installation skills are typical of most do-it-yourself boat owners. Complete illustrated installation instructions are included in kit.
