Re: Yanmar 2qm15 Rebuild

Thanks Gordmay,

I have a copy of the users manual already, I was actually hoping to get a copy of the service manual, which i understand provides far more technical and picture detail. If anyone out there has a copy I would be most appreciative.

Re: Yanmar 2qm15 Rebuild

Nice paint job! How did you go about cleaning off the old flaking paint and rust? What paint did you use?

I'm about to attempt the exact same rebuild on my 2QM15. Was lucky enough to find a dealer with the exact exhaust elbow which has completely rusted through. Am sure i will find plenty of other parts which need replacing in the process.

Re: Yanmar 2qm15 Rebuild

redbeard,
i was wondering if you still have the pdf copy of the manual for the 2qm15. i have the owners manual but it does not really cover that much. looking to do a similar job to what you have done here.

Re: Yanmar 2qm15 Rebuild

simo.orr , You might want to see if there is a shop in your area that does dry ice blasting to clean up your engine. They can blast the engine without any need to plug holes, worry about grit or damage. Where I used to work the company had a contractor come in and blast a bunch of machinery before it was overhauled. It cleaned it to bare metal with nothing but a little grease or rust left on the floor. No sand or glass beads or walnut shells to ruin bearings etc. I had never even heard of the process, but I was very impressed. Just something to think about.____Grant.

Re: Yanmar 2qm15 Rebuild

Well i finally finished my rebuild. Ended up taking it completely apart and wire burshing the lot. Also i can strongly recommend a primer called PA-10 from international paints. Pretty happy with the results!

WOW! That looks fantastic!

I'm a fair mechanic ( rebuilt a motorcycle engine and an air cooled VW). We have a 2qm15 that blows some white smoke. I'm thing getting it out of the boat has to be the hardest part.

True?
