I have just acquired and installed a Vetus 4.65 engine
in our boat and am very happy with performance.
My one problem is that I am far from a Vetus dealer with any volume of stock and Vetus appear to be extremely reluctant to divulge equivalents for their branded oil
filters, belts, etc., even though they are patently standard. I don't want to go through the hassle of taking these off before they need replacing and hawking them round suppliers in search of equivalents but, on the other hand, I don't want to have to wait days, never mind the expense, of having to order parts
to be shipped half way round the world
. Can anyone point me to a source of information, giving equivalent specifications and sizes of filters and belts from major manufacturers or distributors?
