Westerbeke may or may not have made some mods to the original manufacturers block. You may want to check on that if you can find out who it was. We have had discussions about Westerbekes and the difficulty of determining which manufacturer made the original block. Westerbeke will not say for obvious reasons.

Google Marysville marine distributors. I've found they have more answers than the factory ( they're a Westerbeke wholesaler)
