If you were otherwise happy with the Universal, I'd stick with it. Engine parts will be available inexpensively through Kubota, an option not available with Yanmar. If your present engine is FWC, have you considered simply rebuilding it? No installation complications and, again, parts/bearings/gaskets etc from Kubota should make that option quite palatable.
