rival 34 engine replacement

Posted: 8 Jun 2015 - By: Keith Reece

Well the original engine, a 43 year old Volvo Penta MD2B is to be replaced. I have enquired around to see what would be a good reliable replacement; it appears that the BETA 25 comes in as favourite so far. This does not come in cheap, with a change of prop shaft and prop. to boot. No doubt electrics will have to be altered. So my question is has anyone had the same carried out, can you feed back any issues that I may incur, where is the best place to buy one from? All information would be gratefully received.
