Pearson 365 Engine Repower / Replacement
Westerbeke W-40 & Perkins 4.108 with a shaft drive turning a 2:1 remote Walter V-drive.
The Beta 35 is the preferred engine for this vessel. The Beta 35 has a maximum engine speed of 2800 RPM. This is important because when coupled to a 1:1 ratio, transmission, this combination works just right with the original 2:1 ratio Walter V- Drive. This package provides the correct power and propeller speed for best efficiency. A higher RPM engine even with more HP is less desirable for this repower.
THINGS TO KNOW
- Beta marine offers a Velvet Drive adaptor kit for all of our larger engines. This allows the installer to maintain the geometry of the original installation.
- The Beta marine stainless steel reversing exhaust elbow works especially well for v-drive installations.
- Propeller size is usually limited to 16” or 17” diameter on this vessel.
