    Default gale soveriegn 40 hp lower unit

    Hello all, I just joined this forum today. I recently purchased a Gale 40hp model 40DE-178 or J (tag is worn ) this motor is on a 59 peterbourgh runabout im going to restore.
    For starters a lower end for the gale is required. Any help on finding parts etc would be appreciated.

    Thank you
    Mike

    I would suggest you go to the AOMCI site & place an ad in "Free Classifieds" section. Follow the direction for placing the ad. Members will respond with parts & suggestions. You can ask question in "Ask a Member" section also. If you like what you see & are going to keep your rig you might want to consider joining us?

    I would say that the original poster found a lower unit.----Posted once a year ago and nothing since then.
