Loren, did you get the Beta 25 that's got the mounts same as the Atomic? Also, I'm curious how much taller it is, and if your engine is mounted in the cabin like my 1972 E35-2 is?? Sorry I have a million questions.
Like does your boat have a 3/4 shaft?
Did your Kubota (Beta) 25 come with a warranty?
Have you written about your repower experience?
It's an odd similarity, but my iphone 7 just died, and I could keep it going for maybe a year with a fair bit of effort, and then it would die permanently, or get a new phone. I chose to get a new phone. It works, and will work for hopefully some years (the 7 lasted 6 years)
Now my engine has died, and I could spend 500 to maybe fix it, for ? knows how long it will run. Ken from Moyer says it's had a lot of hands on it doing awful work to it, and so I'm faced with a similar decision. Fix it which may work for ? how long, or go for a diesel beta 25, preferably new, which if well maintained (which I would) could last a long time.
