Re: Yanmar coolant light on

Thanks very much! I have had someone look at it and not only did he come to the conclusion that it is the thermostat but also that it is not in fact a YSE8. It is a vertical cylinder as opposed to a horizontal. All YSE are horizontal. The next problem was finding out exactly what type of engine I actually have!! It turns out it's not a 1GM, and it looks like a SB or a SVE. Problem is we can't tell if it's an8 or a 12 horse power or whether it is an SB or the earlier SVE. As I now also need a cylinder head gasket and an exhaust manifold gasket I am not sure which parts to order as I am not sure exactly which engine it is and whether the parts will be the same or not. Frustrating!!
