i have a new, only 1 hour on it, but older (10 years i think) westerbeke 38hp diesel engine for sale or trade. Here is the situation, it was in a tri i bought. It was run, in place after installation, with one hour put on it, then things happened, and 4 years went by, then they tried to start it again it had seized.
i am of opinion it is a differential temperature seizure from sitting with the wrong oil mix for that time. So if i am correct, a few weeks of an oil soak and it can be recovered one hundred percent.
i am selling it as is, with this issue clearly stated. i am having the engine removed from the boat this coming week and will have pictures then. It is in tacoma wa for local pickup only. When i have it removed, i will bring it down to Olympia and start the recovery process. Even after i have freed the endine i will still want to sell it, only then it will cost more money.
i have different needs for this boat so the westerbeke is going to be sold.
thanks for looking. i am open to trades for gear including inflatable tender, with outboard .
