I started this topic in my "Boat Barn: Digging Out, Repairing, Building Boats" thread and thought it might be helpful for it to have it's own thread.
I have an Albin AD-2 which is a 19-20HP Swedish Marine Diesel. It's 500lbs of reliable cast iron which I'd like to build a fishing boat around. I'm thinking that this engine can take a little boost and would like to turbocharge it for a little more oomph.
This engine is mechanically injected. Here's some of the background:
Fuel Injection Pump: Simms P4717/1
Fuel Injectors: Simms N1172A
Opening Pressure: 2350psi
Injection Quantity (Full Speed) 6.3 - 6.4 cm3
(200 injections at 600 rpm)
Governor All-speed centrifugal
Does anyone on the board have any experience with the Simms pumps? I understand they were the standard for the Fordson brands.
