Just a follow-up on my experiences so far with the DSEC marine diesel
engines I bought off eBay. This is a new thread since the old one deteriorated and went off-topic.
I have been making some basic enquiries to the manufacturer about the availability of manuals
in PDF format, and also wanted to buy a second gearbox
and bell housing to fit to the engine
that didn't have one. I also contacted three other sellers of this engine
on Alibaba and other similar websites specializing in Chinese products.
The end result is that NONE of them have gotten back to me and I've been waiting over a month. I therefore cannot recommend this particular brand unless you have more patience than I do, or can speak Chinese and call them directly to negotiate.
At AU$812 for two engines and a gearbox
I got a bargain admittedly, but the idea of being stuck in a remote
location without support makes this a non-repairable product.
