Transfering engine data to Raymarine C90w

I have a Yanmar 4JH2E. Poking around on the web it seems this engine is not compatible with ECI-100 connectivity to bring engine data to the MFD. I am new enough to all things boats to not even know if the 4JH2E has the ability to send engine data to my MFD. Can anyone tell me a resource for dummies that would explain where to begin in learning what my options are for getting my tachometer, oil pressure, engine temp, etc... up to the MFD instead of having to get on my knees and removing the weather screen in front of the engine panel to see these things? Thank you.

Re: Transfering engine data to Raymarine C90w

we have a pair of 4JH2TE, and i very much doubt it

these are a comparatively old engine and think came out before such connectivity to a MFD was thought of

that having been said the standard wiring harness allows for tacho etc to be mounted on the dashboard...this is where ours are

i have a yanmar chap coming on monday (did you know that to remove the waterpump on this engine you need to unbolt the engine mount and lift the engine !) and will ask him about it

suggest you also ask your local yanmar man. i think you are going to need him...

cheers,

Re: Transfering engine data to Raymarine C90w

My fresh water pump is front and center on my 4JH2E. It absolutely does not require playing with engine mounts and raising the engine. It is in fact going to be a breeze to replace as compared to the changing the impeller of the sea water pump which in my boat will probably require pulling the alternator as I have no side panel access to reach it. I have never heard of anyone changing the fresh water pump's impeller, is it metal? I have the official Yanmar service manual that specifically shows how to check the fw pump's "impeller" clearance etc.. and suggests replacing if damaged, I'll go with the assumption that like most fw cooling water pumps it is metal. I'd be interested to know why you need to raise the engine to replace your water pump?

I'll let you know what the electrician says about getting engine instrument from the engine to somewhere more convenient.Click image for larger version

Just noticed you did not say "fresh" water pump. Disregard my irrelevant diatribe (and useless photo)!

haha...no problems.

guess i should have been more specific...i meant the sw circ pump, which takes seawater through the heat exchanger.

to remove such you need to release the engine mount and lift the engine 1-2", to access the securing bolt on the pump...classic bit of poor design

i love yanmar, but sometimes have to wonder (eg the oil dip stick on my old 2GMs was almost impossible to replace back in it's hole, which was completely hidden

Re: Transfering engine data to Raymarine C90w

Actisense EMU is the thing, I believe. I’m getting one to install on my 2003 VP:

Re: Transfering engine data to Raymarine C90w

Last month I installed a Noland Engineering RS11 Canbus adapter. The engine data was wired directly from my engine displays to this unit. This unit takes the analog engine data my Yanmar 6LY (pre ECU model) provides, via its sensors and converts to NEMA 2000 to then be displayed on my Raymarine displays.

Here is the current diagram on my system....might help some

Re: Transfering engine data to Raymarine C90w

Looks like both the Actisens and Canbus are both options to get engine gauge data higher than my ankles and up to the eyeballs. Thank you!

I would blame the installation, not the engine. My 4JH2TE water pump is readily accessed and opened without touching the mounts. I do have access doors on both sides (thanks, Jeanneau) as well as via removing the companionway stairs.

(I realize this doesnít change your situation, but felt this one isnít on Yanmar)

true - catamarans do have their own issues for positioning engines and this could be the problem...or perhaps smart thinking by jeanneau has compensated for a problem started by yanmar !

either way, i envy your engine access

Re: Transfering engine data to Raymarine C90w

Hey chrisr,

New topic; what type of oil extractor do you use for changes. As of yet I have not even read the specs to see how many quarts are extracted when changing the oil. My guess is a hand pump that holds all the oil in it's own container may be the easiest?

Re: Transfering engine data to Raymarine C90w

i have one of these off ebay

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/12V-Elec....c100012.m1985

absolutely wonderful. will suck the skin off a rice pudding ! my mechanic uses the hand vacum type pump you mention, and get's out about 5 liters per engine. with this pump, i get out 6. when oil change time is coming i start saving soft drink etc bottles...pump oil into these for later disposal

nb : i always pump out the oil cold

cheers,

yanmar guy told me that you can get more oil out. warm oil is spread through out the engine...cold oil is all sitting in the sump

usually too difficult with manual vacuum pump, but the electric pump handles it nicely
