My friend's Endeavor 32' has a Universal M35 (3 cyl.) engine installed in it. It has a Hurth transmission and is fresh water cooled.
That said, I have no idea what adaptations you would need to do to align a different engine using the existing motor mounts and tranny.
Doing a proper alignment job will dictate how much shimming of the engine is needed, if any.
