Re: Repowering- What to do with Old Engine?

I changed the thermostat a few years ago, it's fine. Heat exchanger I pulled and cleaned last year. She runs at ~165 degrees F. It's definitely the cylinder head. Spoke with the yard guys. I can take the engine if I'm there with a truck when they pull it. Otherwise it's a core exchange. Taking it home and restoring it is a nice idea, but if the upside is selling a refurbished Vetus, I'll take a hard pass. Unless someone here said to me "Wait! I'll take your Vetus 3.10 20hp diesel engine!"
