Smartest man of the group so far in my opinion.
I will be very interested to hear how things go for you. I’d give a lot to have such a motor. Seems criminal to marry a finicky computer to a life saving device such as a Diesel engine on a sailboat.
I will definitely get the timing belt changed with the long block exchange.
Should be very easy to do at the time yes?
I have an extra here, ready.
Could anyone suggest a list of new things to make sure are fixed exchanged when they do the switch out?
I could see this crew keeping The same oil filter, and serpentine belt for example.
Our boats are pretty fast. I think 85 should be plenty. Will you change the prop? To match the lower horsepower?
Many thanks again and best of luck.
Please keep us updated with this new foray!
Excuse the errors.
