I'm going to be replacing an Atomic 4 with a Yanmar
8HP diesel motor
I've got everything from the boat the yanmar
came out of and intend to install it on my Catalina
27. I've just received the Catalina
and the A4 needs to be replaced. the previous owner started that it had pulled in sea water
and that he let it sit for a few years....
The yanmar was rebuilt in 2011 and had about 100 hours on it. It came out of a Hunter
So my questions are many. I've never done this before, though I'm fairly mechanically inclined, and I want to not miss any steps not do I want to not do something that should be done during this process.
I'm thinking of sound proofing, shaft angle, mounting the motor
, vibration issues - you know - all that stuff.
I'm certain there are a thousand things that should be considered. I'm also sure that there are methods and things I should look out for.
Basically, I'm looking for advice from people that have done this type of thing.
