Calling Pat....Yanmar 4JH front seal....

I have not seen the boat and my manuals are down at my boat.....

If you are around, how difficult is is to replace the front seal?

Thanx

should be. Pull the crank pulley and replace the seal. I'll confirm in an hour or two.

Pat..Just have ask one more question.

Is there a specified torque? Or do you just drive it back on with the impact?

Thanx

Pat, it went well....zip-zop no muss no fuss.

BTW he was given a quote of $400.00 to do the job by a yard here in B-more.

Un-Be-LIE-va-ble

Thanx again

as expected. Sorry I didn't get back top you. It's opened up here for the season.
$400.00, I can believe that. it's just another example of the mentality out there.
