Re: Yanmar mounted on Volvo Bed
I have a low hour Yanmar 3gm30f w/sd20 that I would like to install on my Volvo MD11 engine bed. Has anyone done this job? I know Beta makes custom feet to fit an MD11 engine bed, but I can't find anything information about Yanmar mounts.
I have a few options, but I'd like to hear from anyone who has made this change.
1. Find proper Yanmar Engine bed - ($1200 is too much at the moment)
2. Find custom feet to fit the old Volvo bed.
3. Customize old engine bed somehow to make the Yanmar fit.
Any help/info is appreciated.
ANY metal fabricator will be able to make the new brackets to fit the yanmar engine and mountings to fit the engine bed..
After all it is just a case of making 4 l shaped brackets.....
