I don't know if they have one but if yOu send me your number I will have one of their guys call you I am going there tOday. They are the best in the business. I was impressed that they build tue motors for the navy's small attack boats.

I think they've built a number of engines for the Military. Engines that simply could not fail. Some of them were MONSTERS

They also built many OEM Volvo Penta DPX motors I have the hand written specs on those motors internally if I could find that info I will post it. Those motors ran strong. They did Volvo's motors late 90' to early 2000's.
