Ok to kill two birds with one stone:
I say the engine
has aprox 5000 hours on it because the hour meter registed 4500 hrs. when I purchased the boat in 1993. Since then the boat has been used for daysailing on Galveston Bay. I cannot guarantee the actual hrs. but based on the compression
( the engine fires up immidietely even when cold ) I assume that the pistons rings are not shot.
I have replaced the fuel lift
pump, the fresh water
pump and some of the coolong plumbing
. An I just found tha I had a very small fule leak from the injector pump
Since my plans are to go cruising, and I still have an income
, I decided that I did not want to worry about the engine having problems in the San Blas Islands. SO I have decided to replace it.
After looking at all options I have decided on a Volvo
So the engine is for sale
