Re: Seeking rebuilt Universal M25X engine

My engine has been having issues for three seasons. Started with raw water pump going bad, mechanic said it could not be fixed. Called Catalina they thought that sounded odd, but three mechanics laters, it cant' be fixed. Cam shaft stuck, does not turn?? We put on a little electric pump for temporary solution while we figured out what else to do. In the meantime, fuel injector got stuck, had that rebuilt, then after all of this, she still has issues. Started her up this year and she just sputters. Failed three compression tests. Boat is in Oxford. Seems cost of getting engine rebuilt is similar to buying a rebuilt engine (but they want my core in exchange as part of deal). Will look into the Kubotas mentioned and also the crated new Catalinas. If the new one is M25-XPB is that a good choice?
