The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    I have a Cummins 5.9 liter turbo 210 hp straight-six non-aftercooled diesel.
    I have just removed the heat exchanger and have installed a Walter keel cooler. I see that I need to remove the raw water system, but that is what cools the gear-box. So now, I need to hook-up the cooling water to the gearbox heat exchanger. Is there a kit for this? What gets cooled first...the engine or the gearbox? How to I plumb this sucker?
