Re: Repower confusion (horsepower)

Along with to make a 6 cyl be equal to my twin cyl yanmar, you would have really small cylinders! Frankly, 2 large vs 6 smaller in many cases is better! I have a 750CC 3 cyl turbo in my trackhoe, do not remember the CI or Ccc of the boat motor, both motors are 16HP. It is smaller, hieght wise, but 50% longer in length. Which could cause some issues.
