Re: Identification of Yanmar, Please

Hi Larry:
Thanks for bringing this thread to a conclusion. The boat and the engine are sweet. Unbelievable the prices for a new boat in Vietnam. So are you the divemaster?

Fair Winds,


Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness

Good luck with the business!

Lots to see there. I use to dive the islands around Quần ảo An Thới (09 59N X 104 01E) back in 1969/70. There was a prison camp and repair facilities for PBR's and Swift boats.

I can still see a scar on my little finger where I slid off some barnacles climbing up on a submerged rock.

Re: Identification of Yanmar, Please

Hi Peer and anybody else who may have this engine and gear box.
I had a final drive shaft bearing failure.
If your engine has high hours, you will need to check something.
There is a screen in the bottom of the gearbox and after years of oil blowing through it, mine eroded through and sent all manner of crap up into the transmission bearings, wiped them all out, but the gears are fine. Cost $800 to replace parts and labor for all the bearings in the gearbox.
Please contact me for more details !
Otherwise I have put about a thousand perfect hours on it, no problems at all.
happy boy here !
