I just recently bought a 1988 Cruisers Inc. Holiday 2670 with a blown engine.
I am dropping a rebuilt engine in (mercruiser 5.7L 260 hp alpha one) and I noticed that there is a raw water inlet valve located just to the right of the motor. The previous owner disconnected just about every dam hose and line, so I am not sure what this is for.
There are 2 raw water inlets on the boat. 1 Located under the floor hatch in the cabin, which is to supply water in order to flush the toilet when on the water and 1 raw water inlet in the engine compartment.
In the manual, it says that all cooling water comes in through the outdrive.
This boat also has a hot water heater with a heat exchange unit on it. Not sure if it has anything to do with that.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
