CSY 44 Engine Replacement

Read our CSY 44 Repower Write Up

Original Power

The CSY 44 will most likely have a Perkins 4.154 as original power using the extremely dependable Velvet Drive transmission in a deep gear reduction.

 Repower Recommendations

The Beta 60 with a Velvet Drive adapter kit has proven time and again to be the perfect power for The CSY 44.  This engine provides the high torque and low 2700 RPM maximum operating speed that works perfectly with the original Velvet Drive transmission and prop shaft arrangement.

Naturally aspirated and all mechanical fuel injection make this powerful diesel a trouble free addition to your cruising experience. With no turbocharger heat and noise and no black box computer engine controls, the Beta 60 is EPA rated for all applications.     

Reusing the original Velvet Drive transmission is economical in many ways. It is very inexpensive to rebuild this transmission to like new condition and installation is simplified by using the original mounts that are fit to the side of the transmission case.  With a 2.91:1 gear ratio, it will turn a 24 diameter propeller in the same rotation as the Perkins 4.154.
