RE: Is this a Willard?

On any new engine avoid the Hurth series of trannys like the plague !!

OR get one at least 2 sizes bigger than "recommended" .

Twin Disc is my first choice , if you can fit it.

The 3 cyl is far smoother than the 4 with less effort , 3 or multiple of 3 if you like smooth.

I would also install a "lift muffler" in a large size , the only noise from the exhaust will be the trickle of cooling water splashing down from the exhaust fitting.

A Side exhaust has loads of advantages , as does the "North Sea" setup with exhaust thru either side.

IN AK it might be moot as the dry stack would be first choice to keep the maint at a minimum .

RE: Is this a Willard?

Guys,* thanks for all the info.

Looking forward to more.

The present 4-107 is 48 inches overall.* The BWVD is 21 inches of that including bell housing.

The forecabin is nicer than most, as it has the hanging locker on each side, helping add some floor room missing in so many vee berth cabins.
