We are in a boatyard in Gibraltar to have our M80T replaced by the Beta 85T.
To cut a long story short, the Perkins is out and just as the fitter was about to have the Beta craned in he discovered that the Beta was too big. As I type he is trying to work out how the new engine and the engine bed can be modified to fit.
The Beta is stock from the manufacturer except that it came fitted with a large 175a Leece Neville alternator. Also, it has the wrong type of gearbox. It needs a dropbox apparently.
Do you have the photos you took when you replaced your Perkins?
Any help would be very gratefully received.
