Re: Diesel Engine Check-up


So; lets assume the person is in face skilled, can you frame potential savings of different routes. One is you just write a check for a turn key engine swap out. Two is a bifurcated approach, purchase a remanufactured short block and remove and install your self. 3 Do the complete rebuild yourself, with the use of a machine shop doing boring, sleeving, turning, as needed.

I am interested as I am currently shopping and looking at various options, leaning more towards a turnkey used boat, verses a project boat.
