That's good to hear. Maybe La Gringa Suprema will be interested in a course.
I've come back around to my original thinking, that the course might be useful to me. After a few more frustrations, I am thinking that it's best if I just bite the bullet and do the step by steps in the tech manual an fix this thing myself. We do have a local Yanmar
dealer, but they really don't seem to be very interested in working on obsolete old motors that were discontinued almost 20 years ago. When I found out they don't even stock any of the banjo bolts for the HM, or any other parts
at all, I got pretty discouraged about the idea of hiring them to fix it.
It will take me longer, probably, but I will eventually figure it out on my own. This will be well before the Max Boring thing I would be attending in May up in NJ. I plan to start messing around with the rocker arm cover off just as soon as I get the bolts down here and determine that they are not the problem. I don't think they are, but need to check it out before tearing into the engine
itself. I have a small air leak likely in the diesel
return line from the banjo bolt on the top of one of the injectors. Not likely to affect operation.
Toad doesn't stock the bolts either, by the way. They accepted my order, and THEN told me they'd have to order the bolts. Now I'm trying to find another source.
I read through the tech manual. It really all makes a lot of sense, except I am clueless on this govenor/injector pump relationship. Hopefully, setting valve clearance and cleaning
up air leaks
will fix this.
Wonder if Max Boring has an old HM35 they'd sell...
