Re: Universal Diesels?

As JimsCal said.

We just got rid of ours and bought a new engine. The Universal was 30 years old and raw water cooled. One summer we had to wait months for a new exhaust manifold to be recast (enough people had to need them first), then it was the starter, then something else. After about $3000 in repairs the engine mechanics said they really felt bad taking our money. We finally wanted the assurance that when we turned the key, the engine would start.

Now the marina is holding it so we can sell it for parts.
