beta engines

As a guy who picked up a shiny new 35 hp beta, last saturday, I am pro Kubota. I did a lot of checking around, and for the money, I think kubota is a real value.You also get a lot of valuable support from Kubota, check out the threads recent on Foley Engines. An engine requires some attention, if you do some very easy basic maint, read your owners manual, maybe even some of the easier reads about Diesel operation and upkeep you should have sucess with any engine. Ignore it and you are rolling the dice. So for the money, so far so good. Although It is not installed, and yet to propel my boat, I will post during job on progress....Red
