fear and loathing in fort lauderdale
We are repowering our 1969 Morgan 34. We currently have a universal 25xp which runs fine, but is elderly. We will be doing our own installation - and that seems to be the problem. When we contact diesel dealers they are helpful until they find out we ONLY want the engine, not the installation where obviously they make their profit.
Currently we are in fort lauderdale, where you would think there would be plenty of options, suprisingly not. The weaselly (sp?) pricing policies are making us wonder if we should bolt on oarlocks!
We are tired of being treated like red haired bastards! Can anyone recommend a source for buying an universal diesel? We are also considering yanmar and beta engines but are concerned re their footprint etc, feeling that replacing with a similiar but updated universal would be easier. Any input on this would also be appreciated.
