Help! What brand engine should I buy?

I am a big fan of the small Yanmar Diesels. They are quiet, reliable, easy to service, have good parts availability at reasonable prices (but not the cheapest prices). I am curious about what you mean by, "Yanmar e-mailed me and informed me that I can''t buy a Yanmar because I live in Texas". Did you contact Yanmar directly or contact a dealer? Dealers sometimes have limited territories that they can service but according to the Yanmar USA site your area is serviced by:

LABORDE PRODUCTS, INC.
74257 Highway 25
Covington, Louisiana 70435-5679
Telephone: 985.892.0107
Facsimile: 985.892.7656
Email: doehrlein@labordeproducts.com
Website: www.labordeproducts.com

Yanmar also has some national distributers that can service anywhere in the US.

Jeff
