I have an 8.7 Columbia without an engine. I was given a Westerbeke 4-107 with trannie and parts.
My question is, "Will this engine work in my boat without major changes?" How about the trannie? It looks as though it will, but just not sure.
My boat is in Norfolk, VA. So, anyone with some ideas or knows someone local I could talk too, I would greatly appreciate it.
Generally speaking a minimum of 2 hp per ton of vessel weight. A good re-power is around 4 hp. per ton. I believe the 4-107 is 36 hp. at the output shaft. Hope this helps.
