I agree with JimsCAL. The 5411 (and the M15) is unique in that it is directly raw water cooled without a heat exchanger and only one water pump.

My 5411 oil dipstick is marked "Z500" which I believe is the Kubota series numbering for this engine. From other posts n the past, Z500 was equated to the 5411. just my 2c!
