    Default 6-71 Detroit Inframe

    Looking for information on doing an inframe on a 6-71 for a 44 Ocean Yacht how difficult it may be to drop the oil pan and remove the cylinder kits in that model?

    It all depends on you,if you have good mechanical skills and general knowledge of inline detroit 71 series(and i dont mean not a parts changer). If you do not i would say no.The thing is if you get a warrantied distributer it will have a warranty and it would suck if you break something or even break down offshore trying to save a buck! But if you have faith in yourself and a manual and go by the manual you can't go wrong.

    If it has a 2 piece pan then it is very possible or you may have to lift the engine a bit. If your thin like me no problem. The other problem is you'll have to be a decent macanic to rebiuld one of these babies. Good luck be carfull, a maual is needed and some special tools.
