If you look carefully there should be a nameplate somewhere on the engine. It would very very unusual for an engine not to have a model and serial number marked on it somewhere.Hi Barry, Thanks for getting us in the zone. This Newport is a 30 from 1982 (approx) so think is a Mk 2. Sailboat data com shows only Atomic for this model but guess they changed at some point in 80s. So this may be original engine rather than re-engine'd Atomic.
I'm hoping someone can ID the model. According to CO, engine runs but needs new fresh and salt water pumps. Oberdorfer replacement is about $360 so I'm assuming about $1000 for both pumps plus old hose replacement. Heat exchanger will need careful inspection. Anything else I should know? I have no experience with Universal engines.
Thanks in advance.
Are you looking for pics to decide whether to visit, or have you seen it and are following up?I did ask CO for manufacturers plate info but only received the picture I shared. Boat is about 4 hours driving away so carefully trying to asses from a distance is hard work and you need to go at the pace of the owner.
The picture shows very noticeable rust below both the raw water and coolant pumps. They've been leaking for a long time. It does say something about the care of this vessel.If water flow is not coming out the exhaust and thats why the owner thinks it needs replacing
