This is not meant as as argument, but as counterpoint ... with a smile ...considering buying a '78 cat 30 with a universal 11HP. in reading some owner reviews one complaint seemed that this wasn't ideal for the boat. comments?
The first 1335 C30's had the A4, then the next 2900 had the 11HP diesel. That is more than half of the C30's ever built.Model 5411 Diesel - In 1977 the Model 5411 was introduced. It was a 31 cu in, 11 hp 2 cylinder raw water cooled diesel, based on the Kubota Z-500 block, and fitted with a Hurth transmission. The 5411 was built from 1977 to 1982. Approximately 2,900 were sold.
Yep. When I was in Canada my dock was miles from open water in English Bay. To get there required going through the Second Narrows, passing through the inner harbour (no sailing allowed) then through Fist Narrows under the Lions Gate. Depending on current the time to get to English Bay was between 1.5 hours and never since the currents in the narrows run faster than the boat can go under power or sail.hey randy,
understand what you're saying re sail vs motor. just not fun when your're in NY harbor and the wind dies, can take a very long long time getting home.
I also just bought C30 (1980) with a 5411. Can you take a picture of this plate? or reference the P/N? Something I'm going to want to look at this spring.If buying a boat with the 5411, MAKE SURE the little plate has been replaced near the oil pump. This is a plate separating oil from salt water, a leftover from the Kubota 500 engine's power takeoff or something.
