I have a 4JH3-TE Yanmar engine
with a KM4A transmission
attached. The boat
had 300 hours on the engine
when I got it and now has 1,000.
Although I've religiously changed the engine oil
, I must confess that I've not paid too much attention to the transmission
, so whilst I have a little downtime I intend to change the oil
In the handbook, it talks about 'cleaning the oil filter' every xx hours, but I can't find anything which looks like the diagram they show on my particular transmission housing.
Does this relate only to certain transmissions Yanmar
uses, or do they all have some kind of filter.
I can see what looks like a drain plug
at the bottom of the housing, would that be a combined filter / drain ?
