In running condition, with Allison transmissions also in working order. Hours are around 2500. I guess I can throw in the Onan 30 KW too. Don't want these things, but might be forced to take them in trade, but only if I can find anyone interested in them.

Good Afternoon. What kind of money are you trying to get for the motors and gears ? Or are you just looking to trade for something ? Thank you  Augie

Hi Augie,

I'm not an expert on older diesel prices, but I figured both motors and generator for about $17K or so, that's what I've seen some of them go for. I need money for them, not a trade.

Hi Rudi,

Sorry to sidetrack this thread, but  are you still selling Medusa motors?

Jim

Jim,

Yes of course. Just sold one to a classic boat owner, a beautiful Lyman. These Detroit diesels are in fact from a boat that wants to repower with Medusa 600s and the owner is trying to have me take them in trade.

Anything I can help with?

Maybe. Thinking about keeping my 27 for a few more years, in which case I want to repower it. Currently running a single fresh water cooled 350q from around 1991. I don't want or need huge horsepower, 250-260 should be plenty. I just want a modern, efficient, reliable, easy to maintain motor. Oh and did I say inexpensive? LOL

Wow,

I have't built anything with so "little" power in a long time. Can you believe the owner of the Lyman I'm just building an engine for wanted a 550 HP Medusa 500, and it took me months to convince him to step down to a 450 HP Medusa 400? I believe that boat is also a 27 footer. Well, for what you want, likely one of the newer iterations of the venerable 262 cu.in./4.3 L, V6 will do fine. That engine puts out anywhere between 230 HP and 290 HP in marine guise, and there are plenty of cheap parts available for it. I've never built one of those, but wouldn't mind the challenge, I just don't know what you consider inexpensive. Given the quality of all parts we use, besides the engine itself, I don't see how I could build even a V6 for under $10K. If that suits you, contact me, otherwise, I can give you the name of a guy at Marine Power who can build you one of those with lesser components but very well built for likely a little less than I would. Email me at: contact@medusaengines.com and I can help you either way.
