I have a Universal diesel engine
in my 1989 C & C 30 MKII. It is a
three cylinder model M3-20 with a Hurth
tranmission. When I bought the boat
( only 3 weeks ago ) I took it out for a few hours one afternoon with the owners prior to the purchase
. We did some sailing and also motored for a while.
It starts good, idles smooth and seems to have lots of power under load. Compression
tests showed the three cylinders had very similar PSI and was not far from original. It has 544 hours.
Has anyone had any experiences with these engines ? Any things to look out for ? I understand that they are fitted into alot of Catalinas.
