Thanks for this info
I will check with a couple of Yanmar dealers in Brisbane
my supplier in Phuket where the boat is.
I will then post that info for all.
It is heartening to know that the pistons are reasonably priced somewhere in the world.
What about hoses and gaskets?
(Dont start on that...)
I put new impellers in mine on Jan 5 this year to be sure to be sure.
Put the boat back in the water
(it lives on the hard
in Chalong Bay Phuket) and the Port one didnt work even with a new imp.
It wouldnt raise a sweat on a hot day, let alone water
New pump cost $750 + or -.
If you could get a new little cam it would be just great, but guess what....unprocurable.... a bloke could make a fortune supplying them to the world.
Putting the boat to sleep on the hard
for a while
One last thing for beginners...when flushing
the sea water out of the engine by removing the inlet hose from the pump and connecting a fresh water hose to it.
Run the motor
for a minute or two, check the water is coming out the exhaust
all over the next boat. Then ...TURN THE WATER OFF and 5 sec later STOP THE ENGINE.
Guess what happens if you dont turn the water off...
Why is water coming out of the air filter???
Thank goodness for deco levers!!
