I'm in the middle of a repower Atomic 4 to a Bea. There's a lot to it when using different engines. I know I'll be better off in the long run but I think if I could go back in time I'd rebuild or get a rebuilt replacement. I like the work but its a lotta time and money to change everything.

Other than the minor complication of the vee drive transmission, the general guidance you find here and other places applies. If you change to a different make and model of engine you are looking at changing mounts and other issues. Going with a new or rebuilt engine of the same make and model will simplify things. You are looking at a pretty hefty engine, probably about 40 HP, so will need a forklift or small crane to get the old engine out and new one in. If someone else is doing all the work, expect to pay $5k to $10k in labor above the cost of the bare engine. If you can do some of the work yourself like removing the old engine and reconnecting systems on the new one, you can greatly reduce the labor cost.

Dear JimsCAL,

I'm in the market for a used boat and I'd like to replace the engine to get something I'm confident in (an Allied Luders 33 is the target vessel). Do you have a guess at how much rebuilt 30 hp might cost (or where I might shop for one of these)? Also, if I take out the engine myself and do most of the manual non technical reconnecting, how much other labor do you think I'm up against. I'd prefer to get a rebuilt engine of the same sort so exclude the motor mounts if you are able or willing to tackle such a big question.
