Engine swap

After getting a screaming deal on a new Beta 50 HP diesel and transmission, I will be replacing my 1992 Perkins with approximately 2500 hours on it. The engine runs fine - smokes some when started, but not when warmed up after about 5 minutes, and runs strong. Like I have heard in the forum, Perkins engines tend to leak and this one does - one of the reasons I am replacing rather than rebuilding. Not sure what the market is for such an engine or how to access it. The boat is in Portland, Oregon and will be coming out in a couple weeks if anypone would like to have a look and try whilst it is still in the water. I also have a video beginning with starting and running for about 20 minutes, and will post it soon as I figure out how to do that.

Re: Engine swap

I'm guessing the Perkins is either an M50 or a 4108?

Re: Engine swap

The Perkins mentioned is a 4-108 - should have mentioned it earlier!
