Yanmar 3gm30f - $1,000

allright, trying to raise some money for the electric conversion this summer, so here goes...

this engine came in the allied seawind that i bought last summer, we motored it down from melbourne fl to west palm beach, but ran out of diesel a few miles before our final destination... moral of that story, never take the PO's word on fuel burn #'s... lesson learned

i have bled it like crazy on numerous occasions, but cant for the life of me get it to start, i give up im over it and i never want to buy petrol again

did run, looks like hell, not seized... could be running again very cheaply im sure, certainly needs a date with a spray can

engine is complete, i will also include the waterlift muffler and exhaust hose, racor, and external electric fuel pump, as well as guage/keyswitch/idiot light panel... for full price ill throw in the brand new groco raw water strainer

$1,000 obo - i thinks that fair, if not you tell me what is.

ill get some pictures tommorrow

Maybe it runs when you try diesel the next time?
