What zincs go on 2005 Formula 34 PC with inboard 496 Mercruiser motors with 420 HP?

2005 Formula 34 PC


For a 2005 Formula 34PC with inboard 496 Mercruiser motors, you'll typically need a variety of Mercruiser zinc anodes to protect different parts of the boat and engines from corrosion. Here's a general list of zincs you might need:

Hull Zincs: These are attached to the hull of the boat and come in various shapes and sizes, such as flat plates or streamlined shapes. For a Formula 34PC, you might need large hull zincs, often called "plates" or "slabs."

Shaft Zincs: These are cylindrical zincs that are clamped onto the propeller shafts. You'll need to know the diameter of your shafts to get the right size. For a boat with 496 Mercruiser engines, you might have shafts around 1.5 to 2.5 inches in diameter.

Rudder or Trim Tab Zincs: These are small, often button-shaped zincs that attach to the rudders or trim tabs.

Engine Zincs: Mercruiser engines often have internal zinc anodes that need to be replaced periodically. These are typically pencil zincs that screw into the engine's heat exchanger.

Outdrive or Outboard Zincs: If your boat has outdrives (also known as sterndrives), you'll need zincs specifically designed for them. Mercruiser outdrives have their own zinc anodes that attach to various parts of the drive unit.

It's important to check your boat and engine manuals for specific recommendations on the type and size of zincs needed. Also, the condition of the zincs should be monitored regularly, and they should be replaced when they are about half depleted to ensure continuous protection. If you're unsure, it's best to consult with a local marine professional or the boat manufacturer for the exact requirements for your specific boat model and engines.
