Re: Water in oil
Minnie, and Ultimatesailer,
I suggest that if a repower is ever on your agenda that you seriously consider a Universal/Westerbeake or a Beta Marine engine. These are all based on Kubota Tractor engines; spare parts are universally available, and the prices of tractor parts are reasonable (about 1/3 of marine parts).
I have rebuilt or replaced all kinds of stuff on my M-25. Coolant pump, governor, thermostat, lots of gaskets, raw water pump, etc... If I had to do this on a Volvo, I'd be broke. Because the Kubota dealer is a mile from my home, I can afford to keep the boat on a slip, and the engine runs GREAT.
