Thinking of repowering our Discovery 40 Pilot House (displacement abt 26,000 lbs) from a 1974 Chrysler Nissan
SD22 40 hp. Have considered rebuild
, but believe money
better spent in new. Am considering possibly a Beta 43 or 50, or Izuzu 52. Had bad experience with a 3 cylinder Yanmar
requiring two transmission
rebuilds in a previous boat (very expensive parts). With either of the Beta or the Izuzu we COULD use our existing Borg Warner Velvet drive, which was rebuild
5 years ago, and it would make engine
Am interested if anyone has any experience with these engines.
