After getting a screaming deal on a new Beta 50 HP diesel
, 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
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.
