Freshwater Parts for Univeral M15 or M18

I need parts to marinerize a Kubota Z600. I have a dead (water jacket has blown through into the oil) Universal 5411 (a Z500 based engine). I can, and will if necessary, put the manifold off the 5411 on the Z600, but I'd like to make it a fresh water engine - If you have a manifold, heat exchanger and or a pump let me know - I can't give much for them, but it would sure help out and get the old gal back a'swimming. I am on the east coast - head of the Chesapeake Bay. Oh - the old gal is a 1966 Tartan 27 yawl "Kiltie". Any other engine ideas would be welcome - I haven't acquired the Z600 yet.

I did a quick search and found a remanufactured 5411 with Diesel Engine Trader.

It may be quicker and/or cheaper to replace the entire engine/transmission.

My experience has been that a new engine solves many problems and may not be that much more expensive than other alternatives.

I know all about what you are saying - when I put the 5411 in years ago the fitting I had to do to go from an A4 required lifting in and out at least a dozen times. I notice you have a steel boat - I have a life boat made into cutter, well made I might add, but rust never sleeps and "Dragonet" finally got to be too much
