    Trans for a M25-XP

    I have to replace my ZF10M transmission, which is hooked to a Universal M-25XP. I need opinions please!! I am considering a PRM60 (PRM Newage), and a Twindisc TMC 40P (also referred to as a MG-340). Does anybody have any experience with either unit, and will either bolt up to my engine, or do I...

    Transmission Problems...again. - The Saga Continues

    I know this is WAY past the original post, but if somebody comes across it and it helps great!! I had the same trouble with the heat exchanger on my 1987 E 34, so I just moved it!! It works wonderfully to get at the transmission check port, and unfortunately, if you have to have transmission...

    Transmissions...ARRGGGHHHHH!!!!!

    etc Christian, I did service the entire pedestal; including shifting and throttle cable; about 3 yrs ago, but will check everything at that end. There are no kinks; I made very sure of that. In order to get enough travel of the shaft, I did have to move the bracket that held the external part...

    Transmissions...ARRGGGHHHHH!!!!!

    etc Thanks for the pic Christian. Mine looks the same, except the bracket is oriented upward; I don't think that matters though, right? As long as there are no acute angles in the cable. Have you ever had to adjust your trans?

    Transmissions...ARRGGGHHHHH!!!!!

    Transmissions...Arrgghh Thanks Frank, Christian and Loren for you input. Sorry it took so long to get repost. I do tend to feel it is an adjustment problem, but in my humble opinion, the problem is getting the linkage back on after one has removed the linkage and placed the trans in the neutral...

    Transmissions...ARRGGGHHHHH!!!!!

    I have read many of the posts re the M25XP engines with Hurth transmission problems. I still need some advice though. I replaced the old Hurth trans with a ZF10 3 yrs ago; I needed to move the engine forward a little, but things went fine and it has been working well.....albeit with a rather...

    temporary propulsion for '87 34

    temporary propulsion of '87 34 Thanks to all who have replied to my problem!!! I really appreciate your input!!! I do realize the drawbacks of an outboard hanging off the stern, and would never do so willingly!!! I just wanted to get a few more sails in before hauling her for the winter...

    temporary propulsion for '87 34

    Well, I had a daaaaa moment that has proved costly and stupid:esad::esad::esad::esad:. My only excuse is that I was single handing it. Anyway, I got a bowline wrapped around my prop; resulting in no forward gear; just reverse:mad::mad::mad::mad:. So, I have what probably is a stupid question to...

    Using Kubota parts

    Kubota parts Hi bgary, I have tried searching for manuals for my M25-XP, and have sometimes ended up going down a rabbit hole.....seeems there are tons of sites charging for the manual. Not that I don't want to pay for one, but I want to make sure I get the correct one also. Do you have a site...

    Using Kubota parts

    Thanks so much everyone; for the invaluable information!! I will get a hold of the Kubota manual; I have the one for the M25-XP. I ended up having the solenoid rebuilt by a guy who specializes in starters, alternators and such items, and has a little corner shop. He charged me $50.00!!! and the...

    Using Kubota parts

    Thanks bolbmw and Christian, I have been trying to get Kubota parts from a dealer in town, and what I have come up against is finding the right part number. From several articles on this site, I have determined the M25-XP engine is a D-950 Kubota block, but still had some trouble matching the...

    Using Kubota parts

    I thought I had seen a post a couple years ago about using some parts from Kubota engines on Universal Motors engines. I have a starter/solenoid problem and am trying to locate those parts. Has anybody come acrossed that post, and/or know if indeed some parts from Kubota engines can be used on...

    etc Soot, Starter Button

    etc Thanks debonair for the info. The starting problem can happen when the engine is cold or hot; it is completely random, but will often engage after several pushes. Thanks for reminding me about the starter solenoid, I should get it checked out.

    etc Soot, Starter Button

    For those of you that have "leaking mast syndrome" (LOL), I finally found where some of the water is coming in on my '87 E34. It is coming from beneath the light grey strip on the after portion of the mast. HOpe this helps. Also, I have two other problems: I have black soot on my alternator...
