No direct experience with that Yanmar
model, but a good light and a mirror would help (if you aren't already using such). Likely only those bolts and the gasket
adhering (almost always happens), like SC said.
I have an pdf copy of an engine manual for a 2QM15
(and several others), which is the same series (the 2/3GM/HM's are a newer, different series), it only deals with general operation and maintenance
. Could email
a copy if you need one.
A description of (most) common aux engines, and manuals
, etc., can be found at Marine Diesel Direct
, AKA TOAD/TorresenMarine here: Marine Diesel Engines and Engine Parts - Universal, Volvo, Westerbeke, Yanmar, MASE
Engine code descriptions here: Yanmar Marine Engine Identification Sailboat Supplies, Engine Parts and Boat Parts
They are one Yanmar
dealer of several US ones, Yanmar has a very territorial distribution system
, so you may not be in their area (I'm not).
Fortunately I have another Yanmar dealer just a couple hundred yards from my slip.
, ('the' only one for a huge area).
You just might
find a Yanmar supplier on eBay too (I didn't say that...).
