I am a new, (unplanned) boat owner....
in my boat is an oldish Yanmar
There is a plate that says... 6dh-t.
It is a brute of an older straight six, but nobody can seem to identify it.
These are used all over south east asia
to power 20 meter or so wood hulled fishing
boats... I have a million questions about it and have been waiting for yanmar
to respond for several days. My Vietnamese is not good enough technically to get the information I need...( I am in Vietnam
) and this engine
is in my scuba diving
Any information would be appreciated..
B.T.W. I paid about $6,500 for it, installed. A complete overhaul
here costs around $2000. Should I do the over haul now before it goes in the boat ?
Any idea about rated H.P. ? I was given a 12 month warantee with the purchase
, if I brought anything newer, there would be no parts
on our remote
island....so I had little choice.
