Re: Universal M25 Fuel Injector Replacement

Thanks so much for responding to my question about the air filter and the noise level of the old one vs the K&N. It's nice to know that it was not just my imagination that a lot of noise is coming...

Re: Universal M25 Fuel Injector Replacement

Hi,

Thanks for a great post. I replaced the injectors on my 5416, but paid a bit more for mine than you - ah well, support your local Kubota dealer :)

Re: how to pull a motor?

Xymotic,

Did you say you had access to a crane for pulling masts? I used a hand operated mast crane (chain fall type?), at my marina to lift my Universal 5416 out. It weighs a bit less than your...

Re: Universal 5424 vs 5416 parts

Mark,

A leaking raw water pump (Sherwood), caused serious internal damage to my engine before I bought her.

Bill,

Having recently rebuilt my 5416 I can tell you that all the engine block parts are readily available from Kubota and are pretty inexpensive.

Re: One tiny piece of metal is ruining my life.

Jordan,

As ebs has said, the 5411 you have is a marinized Kubota block, the Z500 I think, which is used in the B5100 tractor.

Re: Sailing while A-4 is in gear

Magnolia,

You asked: ericirvine - question: why should it be in forward? Also, I assume, this is only if you are using the motor and sails at the same time? Not if you are just sailing, correct?
