OK, I did a search in the forums
here, and didn't find any discussion on this motor
in particular. I'm half heartedly looking at a boat with a Perkins
M90 (don't know which gearbox
yet). It's nearly 20 years old and has around 7500 hours on it. Would you consider this lightly used or ready for the scrap yard? I totally understand there's no way to answer without knowing its history/use/abuse. I'm not looking for detailed analysis, just is 7500 hours a lot for this motor
, or 'should' it have lots of life left in it? Rest assured if I proceed I'll get both a marine
and engine survey
Thanks in advance for your opinion!
