So, after many many hours of tinkering and yes, money
I have reached the decision to re-power my newly acquired 1976 S2 8.0C. It currently has a volvo
MD6A (diesel 36 yrs in the ocean). Its not a total loss but with all parts
and a transmission
replacement I think I would have a very expensive, old, rusty motor
that would have me crossing my fingers every time I turned the ignition.
I've done some research
and like what the Yanmar
2YM15 has to offer. Though convincing my wife to let me spend more on a motor
than I did on the boat is not working out so well.
Any advise on new or used alternatives?
I am looking to keep engine
cost below 6,000. The further below the better Doing the install myself.
If anyone is selling or knows a deal please help.
Also any recommendations based on similar re-power projects would be great to.
