YANMAR 4JH2E

Hi fellow boaties. This is my first post. I need to remove my cylinder head. Do I need to remove the thermostat housing etc? Or will the head lift off without doing it?

Re: YANMAR 4JH2E

I would expect that the head should lift off with thermostat housing, but if you are pulling the motor to bits you really should not begin until you have a workshop manual and have familiarised yourself with it.

Regards,
Richard.

Re: YANMAR 4JH2E

Hi Richard,
Thanks for your reply. I think my problem stems from the anti-siphon device. I got the head off and water and salt is in all 4 pots. I tipped lots of eucalyptus in the pots. Hoping that it will free up the rings. Then I can assess the damage.
Cheers
Brett

Re: YANMAR 4JH2E

Brett,
For an anti siphon I use a loop which goes up quite high above the waterline on the centre line of the boat. At the top of the loop is a tee which takes a small pipe . (about 3 to 5 mm)
This pipe discharges into one of the cockpit drains so there is a visual indication of water flow and a foolproof siphon break.

Regards,
Richard.

Hi Richard, thanks for your reply.
I don't know if my pic loaded or not. I've never heard of anti-siphon valve. I think I have found it.

Re: YANMAR 4JH2E

On my 4JH2E the anti-siphon loop is a 5/8" hose that takes off from the exhaust manifold discharge, to a valve about 3" above the waterline, then back to the exhaust elbow via a funny side inlet. None of this as in the Yanmar manual, rather all one-off adaptations. The elbow is not the standard Yanmar for this model.

But it has worked just fine for 8500 hours. Tried to upload photos but that's just not happening.

Hi , Thanks for your reply.
In the pic the red hose goes to gearbox and black hose the bend in exhaust next to the join flange.
