VW pathfinder

Postby baldrock » Fri Apr 30, 2010 9:36 pm

I purchased a HC38t last September and it arrives in OZ early July by ship. It has been in storage past 8 years. The engine is a VW Pathfinder. Question is, do these engines have an anode, what should I be looking for prior to tying to start it. I'm hoping it is ok as it was only ever sailed in fresh water so salt water degragation, shouldn't be a problem!!. Is there some way to source a manual on these engines.
thankyou

V W Pathfinder

Postby svhokuloa » Sat May 01, 2010 2:47 pm

I have a Pathfinder in my 38 MarkII. I am not aware of an anode on my engine.

As to startinG the engine, I think just the usual precautions, such as fresh oil, clean deisel, and a clean air filter.

I have several manuals for this engine. It is the same engine as used in the VW Rabbit. I get all my parts from the auto parts store. The parts store guy tells me there are hundreds of the engines around in tractors as well as cars. So, even though the engine is thirty years old parts are still avaiable. The manuals should still be available .

Thanks Ed,
I guess a problem will be the fuel tank/s after such a long lay up they may be fuel of growth. hopefully I can locate and clean them relatively easily!!
How many horsepower are these pathfinders? i was told 50hp! do you have a contact address for parts etc. I looked online but not much success

Mine is a 50Hp. There is also a 55Hp version.

Unfortunately, Pathfinder appeares to be out of business. Engine parts are availble at forgien auto parts stores. The addons, such as raw water pump, exhaust manafolds, ect. are harder to find.

Better late than never?

You can still reach pathfinder (as of yesterday) using the following email address: pathfinder@pathfindermarine.com

I have a 1980 Pathfinder "50" (1.5L) which is actually rated at 42 HP.

No, it has no zincs--due to careful design of how the tube stack in the heat exchanger is electrically insulated (by the rubber end boots) from the rest of the engine.
