someone please explain to me why Westerbeke parts are so damn expensive! My governor failed over the weekend. Front seal and bearing went bad and all the oil came out. Then it chewed up all the seals. Now I'm very lucky and have some great boat neighbors. He has the unit and is rebuilding the thing. Hint to Westerebeke, sell a rebuild kit! The bearing and seals are common parts but come from different vendors. Four parts, four vendors. These seals fail often on these units. Several members have or are having the same issue. Many times when the do fail the shaft is ruined. I got lucky there. A new governor just short of $2000.00 a used unit $675.00. Parts to rebuild $20.00. So please explain why?
