Re: Universal 5411 Cooling

I did look at pricing, you are right.
Has anyone ever found a non marine source for thermostats you could cross reference

Re: Universal 5411 Cooling

Yes, of course. They are Kubota tractor engines. Find a Kubota tractor dealer and order a thermostat. You'll need to know which tractor engine you have:

scroll down Universal 5432 & M40 engine information

NewSite and Kubota Tractor Corporation for dealers near you.

I bought a $42 Universal thermostat from our local Kubota dealer for less than $20!

Re: Universal 5411 Cooling

I have a 5411 in my 1980 Catalina 27. My exhaust spits out very little water until the engine gets up to 150F. As I motor along the temp gauge will increase slightly over the 150F and then come back down. When the temp increases I get a lot more water flow out the exhaust and then the temp backs down to 150F. My engine runs consistently at the 150F mark. I have had people yell to me that I have no water flow out the exhaust thinking something is wrong like my intake valve is closed.

When I winterized my engine this year I had the marina do the job. They hook up a rubber coupling that covers my intake screen under the boat and then I started the engine. In this case I had water running out the exhaust continuosly and the engine temp only got up to about 125F. I must have had a lot more water bypass the thermostat than normally occurs when operating the engine with the boat in the water.
