    Most of the parts will be available as aftermarket items and can be cross referenced to that model or to the individual part number. Having the original part numbers is usually a help when searching for parts. We offer some manuals if you need them.

    Manifolds would probably be the hardest part to find for that engine.

    What are you looking for?

    Default "If you have an 312 engine alr

    "If you have an 312 engine already I can help you with some parts for both the motor and the offset Dearbo transmission. If you look hard, you could find a complete engine on the net, I have seen them. If you do find one and plan on mixing your parts with the located motor be aware that the transmission came in four flavors, The Model A, B, C, and D. The Model A and B have the flywheel housing and transmission case as one piece. The Model A use engine oil and had no dipstick (the dual stage engine oil pump would by-pass engine oil to be used by the transmission which would then be returned to the oil pan. The Model B had a dipstick and used transmission fuild. The pump was part of the engine oil pump but the bottom half was sealed off from the top motor side. The Model C & D were almost the same. They had separate flywheel housing and transmission case and ran on trans fuild. The offset gear half had different gear ratios Make sure you get the correct ratio. If you can post a pictures of your unit I might be able to tell you what you have. It would help if you could get the serial number off the timing chain cover."

    "I own a 57 Century Arabian. I need an engine and transmission overhaul. The boat has a 185 HP Interceptor engine #ECZ 6015-B. The Transmission has the number 1007-A on the side. May be a Dearborn A model) The transmission is fed from the crank case, no dip stick. Do you know the manufacturer of the transmission? Also, I am located in Austin Texas and need to find someone local (200 mi – Dallas – Houston) that can overhaul the engine and transmission. The engine has been running fine, but there is oil in the exhaust. The transmission is refusing to shift except at higher RPM’s. There is MUCK inside the engine and trans. Also, which manuals can I buy to get the engine and transmission?

    According to your post, I must have a C or D model Dearbo transmission. Though mine is not drop style, it's straight. The question is where can I buy seals, etc? The boat is a 1964 Century resorter 15' with interceptor Ford. Last weekend while in reverse, a bolt holding the coupling to the output shaft on the trans. broke. I would like to replace the output shaft seal and any other seals I can. Source?"

    Default "Mike, Your engine can be reb

    Your engine can be rebuilt by any good engine rebuilder. The engine number you posted is a Ford number not the engine number, which you should find stamped into the timing cover. The main issue they will have is with the oil pump. If the transmission oil side of the pump is bad you could buy two engine oil pumps for the motor and cut down the gears or rotor(Interceptor used both types) to use in your old pump. As per your transmission it was based on a Ford automotive type. Many of the parts are the same. Be sure that the trans shop you take it to uses metal sealing rings and not teflon for the forward piston cylinder cover. The weak part of the trans was this cover. The rings would cut groves in it when the trans was run out of alignment. I may have a cover some where in my gargage. I will look when time allows. Use paper clutch (thats what I call them) plates not bronze. The next problem you mey have is with the shift spool, I do have those if you's is bad. I'll take I look and see if I have any extra manuals. Interceptor made the transmission. I believe they sold everything they had on the transmission to a marine dealer in the Midwest when they started using Warner transmission.

    I'll look and see if I can get you some seal numbers. By the way, your engine is a INTERCEPTOR marine engine which used a Ford block. If your transmission has bigger problems then just the bolt you may look at converting to a Warner transmission. In your case it would require little work to covert, unlike Mike who would have to buy a new bell housing, cooler, and a new oil pump for the motor. If you think this is a good option, post that thought and I can make a list of items you would need and what problems to look out for.

    Thanks for the info!
    I'd rather not convert, as the trans. seems to run fine. Can you post the marine dealer in the midwest that interceptor sold these dearbormatic parts to? Sounds like most of these parts are probobly Ford trans. parts. Is dearbormatic trans service covered in an interceptor marine manual?

    Hello everyone. I&#39;m the new proud owner of a 1962 Correct Craft compact Skier. It&#39;s powered with a Ford Interceptor V-8. I see from the original CC brochure that these boats were available new with an 85 h.p. and a 100 h.p. engine. Can anyone tell me how to identify what I have? Is this maybe the Ford 260 cu.in. ? Thanks in advance for any and all information you can give me.

    "I have a Dearbo Model A transmission with the off-set gears on the back. It&#39;s slow shifting into reverse. Had a very good Ford-A-Matic guy put in new bearings, clutches and seals. Still had the problem. Had the oil pump surfaces milled to the lowern end of the tolerances. Still slow. By-passed the transmission oil filter to see if it would make a difference. It didn&#39;t. I have a velvet drive, bell housing and cooler but it will reverse the shaft rotation, and I would just as soon keep it as stock as possible. Any suggestions?"

    Default "Bill, First off what is your

    First off what is your oil pressure going into the gear box? Secondly have you adjusted your reverse band according to the specs? If the reverse band is to loose the reverse solenoid piston has to travel further causing a delay, when you say its slow is it a second, two seconds, or what?
    A one second delay is not abnormal for shifting into reverse.

    What boat is this in? If its in a Century you definetly don&#39;t want to change the prop rotation. The shafts were offset to the rudder to compensate for offset thrust and reversing the rotation would cause for poor turning capabilities to the right."
