Pearson 40 repower

Removing old 4-108 and considering the Beta 43.
Concerned about fitting it in with the Walter RV10.

BTW have some good 4-108 parts. Think it threw a rod so fuel pump, head, etc. might me fine.

Re: Pearson 40 repower

You might want to check this site. I have a very good running Perkins 4-108 in my boat, but if I ever have to replace it I'd definitely consider a Foley re-built at $8,000 for a complete engine with all the great upgrades they include.

$8000 for a rebuild plus $4000 for a core (original poster's engine is not rebuildable) comes to $12,000. This seems very expensive compared to a brand new engine for only $1,000 more which comes with a new engine warranty. Do your due diligence and speak to other boat owners who have done what you are thinking of, speak to different suppliers.

NCboatrx... You misunderstood the Foley website. The core charge is fully refundable when you return your old engine. It's just a charge to ensure they get your old engine. In my view $8,000, plus shipping, is a pretty good price for what is essentially a new, complete engine.

I'd suggest reading about other people's experiences with Foley, aka Dr. Diesel, before following this advice.
