Hi DR, yes I have sent 4 outside contact emails to administrator telling them if my issue and asking to change my name from michaelasingersr@gmail.co to mikecoder3 (all lower case)

I am not able to respond to any of the PMs about this because I am too new. I did the chain song...was horrible at it when you take a look at my attempts as clearly pointed out by blow stink, but that gave me 11 posts but still no PM access. I finally received help from member Resolute who sent a PM on my behalf for which I am grateful indicating I would like a monitor or administrator to change me to mikecoder3. Hopefully you will see this post and be able to help me. Thank you.

Re: Hello New To The Forum

Hi Mike! We jumped in backwards, too. It is kind of scary, but, we can do it. We just need to take baby steps from here on out and do everything right, so we can sail for many years to come.

Good luck!

Hey Mike,

That Kubota engine should not be so difficult to get parts for. As it turns out Universal (among others) used Kubota engine blocks to make "marinized" diesel engines for boats for many years. In fact the model number you mentioned "5434" is, I believe a Universal engine model #. You can still buy Kubota parts, usually from a tractor/farm equipment dealer - you just have to know the Kubota engine block # and sometimes even the tractor model it was used in.
In fact there is still a "marinized" Kubota engine being sold for sail boats. The company that does this is called Beta Marine. If you are real nice to them they might be able to help you locate specific engine parts.

As for engine mounts I doubt it really matters much which brand of motor mounts you use as long as they are robust and solid.

I hope you can fix the water intrusion into your cabin on your "leaky teaky".

As BLJones said, get yourself a few rolls of this Butyl tape unless you find it somewhere local (like an RV store): Need Butyl Tape ?? Photo Gallery by Compass Marine at pbase.com
Also check out the projects listed on the website I just linked. Lots of useful tips there.
