After 26 years of good service a Falcon Owner chose a Beta 35 to replace existing Volvo 2003. The reasons for choice - 4 cylinder so smoother, little difference in weight, no more expensive than the smaller powered Volvo equivalent and good experience of these engines and Beta after sales service also old Volvo can be easily sold on Ebay. To fit the Beta the only major need is for the engine bearers to be a little higher Two metal bars can be made up to compensate for the height and bolted then to the existing bearers. Lower the Beta on to the bearers, mark up, slip the beta back out, drill and tapp the bearers and put it all together. Very successful, and not too onerous!
