Re: To Rebuild or not to Rebuild that is the question

If you do need to rebuild it and don't, someone's going to get a steal on yours. I'll second the opinions here (especially about installing a temp alarm) and reiterate my sister in arms, Zee's point that diesels are easy; anyone can work on them. Granted, I haven't had to pull the pistons, but have done a lot of other things that once I got over my trepidation, were surprisingly easy, and much easier than gas engines. There is a ton of info on the web. I just picked up a recommended diesel book on Amazon for $1 that arrived in brand new condition. List Marine has diesel classes that I hear are very popular. I'll be attending their next one Feb 22. Good luck!
