Re: no start Yanmar

Yep, idles a treat at 850 rpm and as mentioned appears to be making full power, accelerates normally. Fuel is clean, oil not contaminated with water, starter spins it over OK, starts normally once warm etc etc. Bl00dy thing just won't start from cold! A few years ago I had another boat with the same engine (though it was only rated at 13 h.p. so may have been an earlier version). I could hand start that baby every time on the first swing of the crank (and I am an 80 lb weakling), so I really don't understand what is going on with this one.
