Re: We're getting hosed

Still worth reading or re-reading as the case may be.

Re: We're getting hosed

Well worth the re-read! And, the posts from CardiacPaul (CP) & imagine2frolic (I2F) bring a tear to my eye...

I have the Kubota to Universal cross reference, and have created a complete parts diagram for my Universal M25 (which is a Kubota D850). PM me if you would like a pointer.

Re: We're getting hosed

This is simply NOT rocket science.

Didn't your mothers ever teach you to do some research and homework, as well as comparison shopping? Really.

Heat exchangers: Good Guys at SENDURE & Heat Exchanger Source & Flix

Kubota equivalents: Universal 5432 & M40 engine information in addition to the earlier posts which came from somebody who'd already FOUND the information on the internet.

Google is your friend. One design owners associations are invaluable, like this one: Diesel Engine - C34

How many of you still have M25 engines with the old alternator bracket that can fail catastrophically? Maine Sail and I and others have been writing about this issue for over 15 years.

You really do have to spend some quality time looking around, finding boats like yours with engines like yours. Our C34 website is pretty thorough, the C36 skippers are great, as are the Ericson skippers. We all share systems and engines and have already "found" most of the answers to the questions you are "whining" about.

Do some research and you'll find your answers, 'cuz most of it "is already out there."

Good luck.

Re: We're getting hosed

I had a Perkins for almost 20 years. Every Perkins ever built has some sort of farm application. Farm equipment in Canada is subsidized (30% at that time).
I bought all my Perkins parts at the local farm equipment shop at a fraction of any marine outfit.

Re: We're getting hosed

From what I can see my Honda 9.9 is all honda...everyone I speak to says that Honda is pretty closed when it comes to sharing.

On the other hand....years ago my mechanic told me that my 2006 Chevy Impala was probably 40% common to Toyota parts. As said above there are only so many ways that you can skin an alternator.

Butyl Rubber tape though will be exclusively from Maine Sail.
