I'm selling a Yanmar 1GM10
and instrument panel. $850 obo. Located in Deale, Maryland
It runs... Sort of.
If you can get it started and up to temperature, it runs like a champ, but it has almost no compression
and absolutely refuses to start if the ambient air/water temperature is below about 75° F.
I'm pretty sure the alternator
is not functioning, but I never really bothered to test it, as I only used the engine
to make the boat
I'll put it on a pallet for shipping
via freight line, with the buyer to pay shipping
charges, or you can pick it up.
If it doesn't sell in the next month or so, I'll haul it to my workshop, fix it, and then sell it - and then obviously charge more for a good running engine
- but I'd rather sell it to someone who's willing to do the work
I've spoken with a lot of diesel
mechanics, including certified Yanmar
guys, and there's no real consensus on what could be wrong. The most expensive possibility (which most of the mechanics do *not* think is the problem) is that it needs a new cylinder head
- about a $550 part, but that's also the least amount of time to fix. Most mechanics seem to think that it's going to be some combination of rings, piston rod, or even simply rebedding the valves...
Anyway, if you're interested, let me know.
