The replacement engine arrives.....

Just a quick update to let you know the replacement engine has arrived from Dartmouth Yacht Haven.

I managed to get down and was like a kid opening a big present on Christmas day!

The engine was shrink wrapped on a pallet with an additional bag of goodies that contained all gauges wiring loom, 2 keys and a fuel strainer thrown in for good measure.

Very pleased with the overall appearance of the engine which as advertised appears to have been well looked after.

It even came with a nearly new volvo exhaust and anti-syphon valve, I haven't confirmed it yet but looks like the gear box is a match as well which would be great. 

Cant wait to start work on removing the old unit now!

  1. Looking good :) Perhaps it's a good idea to create an additional air intake in the engineroom, this turbo-beast needs a bit more then the original MD2b I guess.
