Oil pan for Universal Diesel
 
Hello,
I haven''t asked a question in over a year and am hopeful of a referral.
I have two newport 28''s one is an A4 and the other is a small diesel. The pan on the small universal diesel has a leak. I was going to use JB Weld or an Opoxy to plug it. I would like to do it right and replace the Pan but the local Mechanic charges way too much for the job. I simply need to know where I can purchase the Oil Pan? I may need to remove the motor or at leasst jack it up.
Any thoughts or referrals for me. My boats are in Long Beach, CA at Shoreline Marina.
Thank you....

Try www.marinedieseldirect.com. That''s the site for Torresen Marine, which is a Universal dealer (among other engines.) You can probably find the part online.

I have the same problem on my M25. I''ve ordered a new Kubota pan from Tractorsmart.com for $35. I will need to attach the old oil dipstick to this pan as the Kubota comes without it (in this location)
I''ve not got around to pulling the engine out yet, so we''ll see is it is at all feasable.

Let me know the route you went

Hey,
I'm looking for a new oil pan for a Universal M-35... I haven't been able to find one online. Is there a Kubota or Westerbeke engine similar enough to switch out? Thanks,
-Trent

I purchased a used Kubota Oil pan for my Universal M25 from eBay. Total was $25 including shipping. The pan arrived in great shape. However, I will need to drill a hole in the side of the pan to accommodate the dipstick, and drill and tap two holes for the dipstick pipe.

The Kubota part number is 15371-01614

May want to paint the new oil pan to prevent corrosion. For ideas use a search engine on keywords: paint steel sailboat

Universal diesels are marizined Kubota engines. Not sure what engine the M-35 is. The engine number MAY be on the dipstick. Look for a nunnber something like Z-500, etc. With that you can go to a Kubota dealer and buy the part for much less than from Universal.

But a tractor pan will likely have a drain bolt and that is supposed to be a no no on marine installs.
