buying a used yanmar 2qm15, TIPS?
any real life pointers on SPECIFICS before going ahead would be greatly appreciated
where does corrosion start and what gets destroyed first? elbow, pan, etc...
whats a solid cruising rpm(propeller pitch and diameter)
what to look at when buying used...
can you do an easy compression check on it? does it have decomp levers like the 2gmf?
I should add that Im not completely unfamiliar with this type of engine as I had a freshwater 2gmf that I travelled with for 12k milles and became completely familiar with it
however it does have some differences that might not translate to the 2qm
