Re: Replacing the Auxiliary

Volvo engines are also notorious for having very expensive replacement parts, if you can find 'em. I'd ditch the Volvo for that reason alone. Add in that it is a filling loosener and it is a no brainer.
A fellow at our club recently bought a Beta engine to replace his old diesel. He is very happy with it. New parts can be had at reasonable prices from Kubota farm equipment dealers.
Could not hurt to call Beta to discuss what model might be a good fit for your boat and the price. Beta Marine US Ltd. Distributors for Kubota based marine
