Re: morgan 462 engine repower
Reading a thread about a M27 re-power project, I noticed my old post and thought I would follow-up for any interested parties.
Never had to cut the cockpit.... I based my selection of engines on HP and brand/distributor presence. I did not want to be "stuck" anywhere waiting for part or order filters that are not readily available. Choice was a Yanmar 4JH4_HTE. As my is a major refit, did not worry about engine mounts and location etc. The M462 has a great engine room so location of the engine was never an issue. Now, with a new shaft, new mounts new wiring she is purring and moving this boat nicely. So far (just 5hrs on the engine) but i have no regrets.
Good luck to anyone else willing to take on such a project.
