Re: Westerbeke vs Yanmar
If you have to wait months for a "Westerbeke" part, that's part of the problem. You need to know who actually made your engine block. Is it a Mistu? A British Leyland? A Perkins? They've used others, too. Once you find out what the engine block really is, you can usually order parts from the local NAPA dealer or a dozen other sources, and get them in 48 hours at the worst.
According to their web site, WB are using engines from "several" actual makers today.
