I checked into a boat from Yatchworld.com that I was interested in (a 1981 boat). In the opening page when you click on the the boat in the short desription it said in bold: Complete engine overhaul in 2009.
But in the long spec it said "Overhauled (2005), approx. 500 hrs since, rebuilt head
2009". So it seemed to me that the posting
made no sense. So I sent an email
asking for what was done, when and if there were reciepts and got a reply that they would check with owner. And later got this:
The owner clarifies as following:
"Overhaul was done in 2005 in Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela
. Not a rebuild
, but all necessary work to bring Perkins
4-108 to peak condition including, but not limited to, fuel
lines, injectors, etc. In 2009, in Roatan, Honduras
, valves were reground."
Far as I'm concerned all that was done in 2005 was general maintenance
and later there mush been a compression
problem and the head
had to be worked on. I wouldn't even call the head work a rebuild
as the the owner says valves were reground and if you didn't replace valves etc you didn't rebuild it.
In my thinking this is an orginal engine
with new injectors. Everything else is just general maintenance
to get it going. So when you see "overhauled" what do you think that means?
