    Hello! I have been offered a m-25 for the same price as a 5416 that was listed for sale, but was in reality not available. I wouldn't mind a more powerful engine, however, what would I need to modify in order to make the different engine work? I was told it was 4'' longer, is that on the front...

    Calling all mechanics for ideas :) I have a 1990 Catalina 30 with a Universal M3-20 (18hp) engine. I discovered about 3 seasons ago if you run the engine in gear over 2000 rpm there is black smoke/soot/particulate matter in the exhaust. Since then I've only run the engine up to 2000 rpm and can...

    Hello everyone, I have the O'Day 28 with Universal Atomic Diesel No. 11, I can't seem to be able to find a manual for it anywhere, is this supposed to be the same thing as model No. 2-12 (two to twelve?). Any help appreciated!

    So, I have a 30 foot TMI (ticon) sailboat which I love, usually, but the 1982 universal diesel that powers it is another story entirely. When I bought the boat about six months ago I knew she hadn't been maintained worth a flip for a few years, and I paid accordingly, but while everything aboard...

    I can’t get the marine diesel engine (3 cylinder Westerbeke/Universal 25 HP) on my sailboat to keep running. When cold, it starts ok and runs for about 1 – 2 minutes, then sputters and shuts off. It runs a little longer at low RPM than high RPM. After this short run and sputtering off, the...

    I currently have a non-functioning Yanmar 2QM20 (18hp) in my Endeavour 32, and I'm looking to re-power. The best engine in my vicinity so far is a Universal M30, 24hp. Does anybody know these engines well enough to say whether this would be too big of a pain, or if there are any odd issues such...
