DD Guru in Maryland...

I am looking for a DD tech that knows the old mechanical engines to spend some time with me in my engine rooms and impart some wisdom. Everything is working, and I will do my best to keep it that way. Yes, I will pay. East Shore of the Chesapeake, Bay Bridge height.

If he is still active, Tom Hug of MR Power is the man. Not just a great tech, a great teacher and communicator. These are the numbers I have for him.

Check in with Richard Walton -- direct phone to his cell is (703) 926-7393. His email is chesbayboat@gmail.com. He is the go to person for most of Deale's charter captains and watermen running Detroits. Plus the DD powered recreational boats in the area. He's very good.

They sell all the parts right up to a long block but the mechanics you want have left there and are independent.

He's a great guy, extremely articulate and can teach you a lot about your engines and associated systems.

See if you can find a copy of ,

Gray Marine - Students' Manual (Second Edition) - Catalog No: 2020 - Date: 1944

This a great tool for learning what is needed to maintain or rebuild a 6-71.

The last updated (post end of production) factory shop manual set for the 71 series is still available if you look around, as is the 92 series.

Fortunately the seller produced two boxes with the engine service manuals, original vessel manuals, blueprints for all major systems and 20 years worth of receitps!
