Going to get my 51 Merc flattie running again. Going to convert everything over to 12v. and change all the fluids. It was running a short time ago, no smoke and sounded great. I was wondering if anybody could throw out some helpful part numbers to get me going a little quicker. Need.....Power gen alternator, distributor, coil and wires. Also what type/brand/weight oil, would be best. Its an original motor never been cracked open. Any anitfreeze better than another? Any info on keeping the old beast running and swapping to modern electrical will be greatly appreciated.
