Ken,

I have just taken a T98 out my 425 in Corfu. I am told the piston rings have gone in one cylinder and their is a slight oil leak from the rear crankshaft seal. It still runs. It got us half a mile from the emergency berth on to her pontoon and then round to the crane.

My engineer has not opened it yet, so we are not sure of the damage.

However, there are a number of spares including a sea water pump, alternator, starter motor, fan belts, filters, impellers, oil and fuel filters.

I can arrange transport back to the UK.

Let me know if you are interested.

Regards,

Brian.

Hi Ken,

If you're contemplating replacing the T98, you might be better off putting a T110 in its place, it will fit perfectly and have a bit more power for motoring into a head sea. The gearbox and the maximising bits are the same on both engines.

Peter.
