The Deutz is great , but todays marine motorist wants joy stick steering so he does not have to learn how to dock.

Probably would not get the joy you do by pre oiling the engine .

Our Buddy Davis ( I own 1/6th of ) had Deutz in it sold them and replaced with Cats

was amazed at how much we got for the old Deutzs

the rest of the owners could not afford the fuel but I would just take it out at night slow and be on the fishing grounds in the morning the other guys used it as a go fast boat

Which better made boat engines are you referring too? Since most boat engines are from auto or truck or farm or heavy equipment venues it seems the better made boat engines are all based on the quality (yes, that word again) of the marinization process - not to forget OWNER related maintenance.
I agree for diesel boat engines. Detroits smoke and are loud.

I was talking about the automobiles in my neighborhood that the owners get in, start them up and are driving away in three seconds. I've never seen any of them warm an engine.

Mikecambrai,
About the Duetz .. they made said cooled engines. Yours wasn't air cooled was it? Some more details and pics may be very interesting. As I recall the Duetz was very basic but having a preluber dosn't seem very basic.

Deutz diesel engine

My Deutz was in a 39m canal barge running for 12 hours per day for 40 years. It was very heavy with a large flywheel, air start with 2 water pumps driven mechanically from the front of the engine. No belts on these machines.
It was a month after I bought her that I found out where the dry exhaust was emitted from, as it had a pretend funnel which I assumed was where the exhaust came out but it actually came out of the stern. At a tickover of around 100 rpm, friends would some on board just to listen to it. In the ten years that I had the the barge it never missed a beat and apart from changing the oil annually and turning the oil filter meshes daily that is all that was needed. They don't make them like that nowadays, but then it must have weighed in at a few ton!

Deutz made air cooled engines, but also made purpose built true marine water cooled engines like the poster's canal boat has. Fantastic machines, only seen a couple.
