I bought a 36' Seal that has a VP MD2040; unfortunately the previous owner cooked the engine
, resulting in a cracked cylinder head
and scouring of the cylinders.
I took the engine
out and according to the local mechanics, we can rebore and re sleeve with Perkins
sleeves, allowing the use of a standard major overhaul
kit; any idea where I can source the kit? found 1 online from an Ebay seller for USD800 plus USD200 airfreight..
But trying to find a replacement head
is almost impossible...closest I got was from a Canadian site Ebay for USD700 plus USD250 freight..
Also need a circulation pump and that is another USD800 new ex UK plus freight...
Almost getting uneconomical to fix. What are your thoughts?
