Re: Re-Power Allied Princess

You need to provide more detail. Easiest is to rebuild or replace with the same engine. Less work on moving mounts, changing systems and wiring, etc. Can you do all or some of the work yourself?

Re: Re-Power Allied Princess

If it is a Perkins 4108 these guys do exchange units, that's the way I would go.

Re: Re-Power Allied Princess

Usually, you simply unbolt everything (motor mounts, exhaust, fuel lines, prop shaft which may not want to simply let go). Hump the motor forward out of its den, hoist up and out using your boom or other hoist.

With a rare few makers, the cockpit floor unbolts for access.

But there are some boats where the engine was literally installed before the deck was attached to the hull. In THAT unlikely event, you could need to cut open the cockpit floor and rebuild it afterwards.

If you're not sure how to remove the engine--you'd probably want to hire out the entire job to a yard, and have them warranty the entire job. Making sure the replacement will fit, line up on the engine bed, and getting it aligned to the propshaft, are not rocket science but they aren't trivial tasks, either.

Re: Re-Power Allied Princess

I have an AP from '79 that was repowered by the previous owner with a Volvo MD2040. It fits nicely in the engine compartment and is very accessable to work on. It looks like it was able to be dropped in right thu the companionway (probably with the alternator removed). Its a three cylinder 40hp and drives the boat nicely but pray you never need any spare parts ($$$).

I had to replace a foam sock filter (for the air intake) and with the inside spring and the foam piece they want over $70. I found the same thing at a motorcyle supply store for 18.

Let me know if you need any pictures.

Ron
