Re: Yanmar Parts Prices

I have been told (though never checked out) that many of the refrigerated truck trailers use a 2-cylinder Yanmar diesel to run the compressor, and that parts for same are much cheaper (at least in North America). Not that you're likely to find any watercooling parts there, however.

I doubt any trailers use a 4-cylinder turbodiesel for refrigeration, so I no longer have any use for this info. Hope it helps someone.
