For those that prefer JD , the game is to purchase the engine from a JD farm place , during the 2-3 times a year "sale" when no core turn in is required.

These are factory rebuilt to as new standards.

Saves about 1/2

Interesting. Are those short blocks, or whole engines? I guess one them moves all the marinization parts over to the rebuilt engine?

Thanks Ted...about what I thought.....

Man, I was srarting to have nightmares about snowbird in by boat.

At $39 k per engine, most twin guys could just rebuild their boat engines and have enough left over for a nice used RV like Timjet was contemplating.

There you go Hawgwash, rebuildable blocks, marinization parts still available and a diligent owner. Good thread.

Back in 2000, only 10 years prior to that price quote, I bought a 48 HP tractor with a front end loader, backhoe and a couple more attachments for less than that engine! It was JD equipment too. The tractor does have a Yanmar engine so maybe that difference.

That sure is a bunch of money for an engine and tranny...

Later,
Dan

Regarding price of motors, I think a great deal depends on where you buy it and if they see what you're driving. The dealer I bought from primarily sells to Chesapeake Bay waterman. They aren't noted for spending much money on anything. As a result, think the motors are sold at a much lower margin with the intent to make more money on the parts and labor down the road.

The limited experience I have had with engine dealers catering to the yacht market leads me to believe that they feel we are prepared to pay a much higher price for the same item. Maybe that's part of the reason I have a trawler instead of a yacht.

A second easy way to save over 1/2 is to purchase a rebuilt tranny (I prefer Twin Disc) from a commercial rebuilder.

There are so many TD out there ,that a core charged can easily be waved on a Ca$h sale.

Subscribe to Boats & Harbors , for a look at the commercial not White Boat prices.

A few bucks for a couple of months.

Also advertising there for what you want is really cheap!

FF, there's this thing called the internet. You can view Boats and Harbors for free on line.

Looks like from your new avatar (post #6) you finally got your new loop boat?

Don't mean to sidetrack Hawg's Deere discussion, but you and wifey might consider an introductory thread about your new ride.

Wifey B: Got it but going to do a number of things on it in the next month to get it fully ready. Right now shaking it down. We went to Cat Cay for lunch today. It doesn't have Lugger (Northern Lights) generator but Cummins (Onan). Will be our first with it. Love Lugger.

And do you know OMFG and OMGYG2BK?

No, I only barely know OMG, more than that and I'm too old.





Look forward to hearing about it. One docked next to us at our semi-nearby Hyatt last August-ish or so, looked like plenty of space aboard.

"there's this thing called the internet. You can view Boats and Harbors for free on line.'

Like so many things , you may not know to look for what is interesting.

"You dont know what you dont know!"

The subscription is so cheap the ideas generated by the various advertisers is worth the few bucks.

These are less likely to be studied using a computer .

Take a look at the online version. It allows you too easily magnify the sections of the page, making it easier to view for my old eyes.
