Re: 2qm20 starting help

Excellent outcome and much better than fitting an OB

That's great!

That 'water leak' is a sign that the seal is about to go - its designed to do that to let you know when its failing.

You need to rebuild the pump ASAP before it starts getting seawater into the engine.

Re: 2qm20 starting help

I am going to the yanmar guy tomorrow to get the seals. No plans to run it anymore until I change the seals and also do an oil change and install the new racor filter. Definitely don't need to do any damage to the engine, hoping it lasts me many years.

Hey don't forget to bleed that again when you install that new filter. Smiley face

That derelict boat was another dream for somebody else, don't let it be your nightmare and a waste of your life.
