How does a Wayne 100 compare to other boats of the era? Mid 40MPH seems pretty decent but I'm not a boater. Just wondering if they are actually good boats other than the Corvair connection.

Trying to help Rick..

Before reading the following - Please understand that the person who will be looking for these numbers is 74 years old.

PLEASE answer the questions so I can clearly relay the information to him...

Where are the engine codes on a Wayne 100? DETAILS

Do you have to remove any engine parts to see the code?

How can one see them? DETAILS


Thank you..

He will probably need a good flashlight and be able top get low enough to look under the edge of the fan housing from either slightly to right or left in order to be able to see it.

If he has access to a cell phone camera, he could use the camera and light to get a better view of it up close and snap a picture instead of trying to read it.

So I only see 1 carb port on the head, any idea on what head numbers on on it are in order to determine if it is a 95hp or 110hp engine?

slandis...

I looked back though my "Wayne 100" stuff and see that there were 96 engines ordered from GM consisting of a mix of 1963 80hp engines and 64-69 95hp engines.

I have to assume that your 3A dentotes one of the 1963 80hp engines..

I have a 4AA from a 1964 95hp...

Can you please check your head numbers to help confirm what you have...

I believe that they were all sold initially as 1965 Models...they were in development for 6 years and debuted for sale either in late 64 or early 65 as 1965 models.

From an article on Wayne 100's....

The secret of its successful adaptation to marine use is the invention of a practical system of cooling in which the engine sits in a sealed, pressurized compartment.A fan on top of the engine forces air through the compartment at the rate of 2000 cubic feet per minute, expelling it with the engine exhaust through ports on the transom. In addition to cooling the engine, the fan cools and insulates the exhaust system and provides fresh air to the carburetor. The designer overcame several problems which have slowed development of air cooled engines for marine use. Instead of enclosing portions of the engine with cooling ducts, he enclosed the whole engine in a pressurized compartment, so once the compartment is open, the engine is completely accessible for servicing and repairs.

Yup great system!! As long as you don't pump too much air into the compartment... slightly supercharge the engine and cause it to go lean...over 4,000 rpm..

Smaller fan solved my overheating problem..

I attached pictures of both head numbers that I can see. One is blocked by a bolt. Please let me know what version you think I have.

Well I am reading the first numbers are 38135****

This sequence only covers 5 sets of heads, so it is one of the following...

(Most Likely one of these)
1962-63 80hp Headpair 3813512 & 3813507 1/4 20 end holes
1962-63 80hp Headpair 3813513 & 3813508 5/16 18 end holes

(No 102hp were ordered if original engine)
1962-63 102hp Headpair 3813516 & 3813511 5/16 18 end holes

(Generally reserved for export engines)
62-63 Export / Low comp 3813514 & 3813509 1/4 20 end holes
62-63 Export / Low Comp 3813515 & 3813510 5/16 18 end holes

So I am going out on a limb and saying that if these are original to the engine, you have one of the 1963 era 80hp engines.
