Re: Universal 5424 Diesel

Thanks Capt jgwinks - it is helpful to get your confirmation re commonality of nozzles.

Actually I think all the smaller Kubota's use the same nozzles. The manuals show a different part number for each model but when you look those up you get "has been replaced by" the same number. I bought a pair on eBay for $40 each and now she runs great. Any shop selling Kubota parts will have them. BTW they were $401 each from Universal.

That is brilliant. Thank you. Not sure why my search failed to get the link - not quite the right words?!
So, it seems the M25 and M30 use the same injector nozzles which I believe from other posts are Nippon Denso 093500-1560

The FIRST hit on a search of SailNet on "Universal Kubota Injector" yields this fantastic post by a modest and truly brilliant SailNetter; http://www.sailnet.com/forums/diesel...placement.html

I usually buy a few at once, online, but if you need one quickly, O Reilly auto parts has them - not on display, you have to ask.
Thanks!

There are some issues with decreasing parts availability (search for M-30 and heat exchanger for an example) but they don't seem too bad. 2500 hours doesn't have to be "HIGH" if the engine was well maintained it may have tons of life left. Frankly, the Hurth transmissions seem to be the biggest source of complaints I have noticed (I have had no such probs myself -- KoW). Look for smoke, it should probably run @2800-3000RPM at the top end. Cost to replace has more to do with the set up of your stringers, motor mount, etc. New Kubota is probably under $8K to purchase . . . with basic install maybe $12-15K -- installed with bells and whistles probably run you as much as $20-22K.

Good Luck!
Hey there ---- a bit of a bump. I'm going to drop you a PM about that parts list.

My old Tartan34-2 has the M-30
