Re: engine change out

Unless you are stuck on Yanmar's I'd suggest you look around at other engine manufacturers. I've heard lots of good about Beta Marine for example - they are made in the UK, using a Kubota base.

That means there is a ready made list of parts that are not 'marine' priced because Kubota makes tractor engines.
