for those googling gnomes;

Allrighty!
The 30b and the ML-310 all use the Mitsubishi K3D
It’s also used by Mitsubishi forklifts and Toro tractors
I’m thinking I used to have exhaust run up rigging on a few of my fish boats,
Why not dry stack that puppy up the Mizzen?

Keyspc, I worked for Vetus untill 2005 and someone is pulling your chain. The M3.10 was retired a long while ago and replaced by the M3.09. Parts are often hard to find for 20+ year old engines.

Keyspc and R.W.,

I have been looking for overhaul and gasket kits for the same engine (K3E). The Vetus distributor quoted me $722 for the gasket kit but said that i would have to order the overhaul parts seperately, although he said they would give me a 20% discount for this.

You might try Parts Supply Corp (269-673-4146). Gasket kit $597, Overhaul kit $1393, delivered in 1-2 weeks.
EngNet - Mitsubishi Diesel Engine Parts - Parts Supply Corporation

I feel your pain concerning Vetus' prices. I have 2 m310's. One just needs putting back together, the other needs overhaul, alternator, fuel pump, exhaust injection pipe etc. It's looking like it may be cheaper to invest in a new Yanmar.

Mike

Ummm, Yeah right.
My vetus and the westerbeke i got the manifold from had the engine type # stamped in the same place, same number, used the same gasket.
i think my chain is safely stowed in anchor locker.

The original m3.10 heat exchanger / manifold had an integral exhaust elbow. Real bad idea. the upgrade and Even the new design on the M3.09 exits real low (no rise). way too easy to get water back in the engine.

Yanmar and most others do it much better.

And that would be why i used the westerbeke.
but after a few decades of dry stacks i really did not like the integral exchanger idea. or the 2 grand + price

Keyspec, I mentioned chain pulling in regard to pricing. The K3D is the old m310 block The newer M3.09 uses the L3 series blocks for the last 5 years or so . The marinazation items that Vetus supplies are made just outside Rotterdam NL, FW pump is Johnson. The price you quoted for the exhaust seems a bit high but that hopefully includes the heat exchanger tube stack but then the $euro has changed. Little suprises me these days. Good luck
