Re: To Rebuild or not to Rebuild that is the question
My little Universal diesel over heated twice because I was not paying attention. After the second time I was more careful. However, after about 3 more hours of use it made a scraping noise and quit. It would restart but the noise was still there. I had it rebuilt. The engine shop had to replace a bent rod. Because it is a Kubota based engine I stripped it to the basic engine and sent it to a Kubota engine shop. Because the boat was new to me I had no idea of the engine history.
