Hello Benny,

Good luck with this engine. There is a lot of information listed above, most is not correct. I am not going to review the info above, just note that there is a huge difference between a gas turbo and a gas diesel, and an automotive engine and a marine engine.

If you are serious about this boat, the best advice has already been given to you: Hire a good diesel mechanic and have him perform a thorough analysis of the engine. The engine may be fine, it also may have serious and expensive problems.

If anyone is interested in some of the mis-information listed above, let me know and I will try and provide an accurate list.

Barry
