Hope everyone is well.
I have a 2013 Jeanneau
Sun Odyssey 469 with a Yamar 4JH5E motor
. It was stored on the hard
in Marsh Harbor for hurricane
season and then it took a direct hit from Dorian. Plan is to motor
it back to Florida
. Most important thing will be to test the motor before putting the boat
in the water
. To test the motor with the boat on the hard
I'd need to detach the seawater intake suction hose and install a hose so the motor can suck out of a bucket.
Can anyone who has a Yanmar
4JH5E measure the inside diameter of their water
impeller intake hose? I'd have to bring some hose with me to the island, no where to buy it on site.
Someone recommended hooking a water hose directly to the impeller intake instead of a bucket but the problem with that is it could force water through the channels with the motor not running and create hydraulic lock if it fills up the exhaust
, all over if that happens.
