    I am in the middle of a total refit of Silver Maiden, my 1974 E27 that I have had since about 1984. As part of that refit I pulled the P-60 with the intention of sending it to a fellow in California that rebuilds them, but I stumbled upon a NEW Yanmar 1GM10 for less than the cost of the P-60...
