Personally I don't like companies that disrespect their own products. WB slaps red paint over the entire assembled engine (last time I checked) including the rubber hoses--which every rubber part maker will tell you, is going to cause them to fail prematurely. What else are they doing wrong, where I can't see it?

And, they are prime manufacturers of nothing, they contract out to the low bid and then assemble a "marinized" engine, AFAIK. I'd rather go Kubota/Beta as price leaders, or Yanmar as "the" name--despite their parts prices.
