Does that help? I have 2 carbs, 3 blocks, 6 cranks, and a bunch of miscellaneous parts. And I apologize in advance I am new to this forum stuff so I'm kinda slow.

Looks like a mix of A65/O170 and C90/O200 parts.

If those are Ma carbs you might have something more than scrap?

that's a real shame because if those are 0200 cranks and could have been re tagged they could have been worth over 1k each or 2500 each if you have them certified. but rusted like they are they aren't worth anything.

Where are you located ? What you have is a collection of mostly 65 HP continental parts. The only thing I can see that may be worth anything are the small oil tanks. Hope you don't have a lot invested.

Odd that you say that.

No Deano not in the bottom of the ocean. Who would take a airboat out in the gulf? Actually these were on a shelf in a warehouse we recently bought. Wasn't sure what they were or if worth anything? That's all. Didn't want to scrap it if someone was looking for certain part or whatnot. That's all.

Didn't mean any harm. It just a shame that whoever stored them, didn't take
any steps to preserve them to keep them from turning to scrap. Those pictures
only confirm what we both already knew . . . that your humidity isn't a lot unlike ours.
I was only pointing out it's a shame, that's all. No more, no less.

Congratulations on your purchase, wish I had just bought a warehouse.

No harm no foul man. I found some other things in another box. Just would be a bonus of it was not a total loss.

The peanut oil tanks go for a few hundred on ebay.

The last picture is a hand pump.I had one on my first airboat. I had two fuel tanks on it. A big one under the engine and a small one under the seat. The small one gravity fed the engine. I would be running along and the engine would start to miss and I would have to start pumping like crazy to keep the engine running. That little 65 would be a pain to crank when it was hot.
