I have a Yanmar
with a Hitachi (assumed 55 amp, there are no numbers or marking to identify it) alternator
which do not charge the batteries. No charging
for weeks, had to go to home port in the middle of the vacation(could not start, 11.53 volt on the batteries)). What is the likelihood that the alternator
is broken and can I replace the unit with any 55-60 amps alternator given that it fits in the brackets?
The "fresh" water cooling
system have started to leak at the pump axel ( not the raw water). Is compleat replacement of pump the only option or is there a easier way to solve the leak?
