Hi all, as i plan to embark on a longer trip, i decided to replace my old Thronycroft T108 with gearbox. The engine runs fine (see videos of it below), so i think it would be worth to try to sell it. When cruising at 1500-1800rpm, no smoke is seen, but when giving throttle kicks (full ahead/astern for 3 sec) needed for close quarter manoeuvring, there is some blue smoke coming out. Below is a link with photos and videos of the engine, as well as a list of replacement parts.

Send me a private message if you are interested to discuss further!
