Re: Yanmar 2GMF problems
How is the performance of the engine when in neutral? Does it rev freely? (Is this an engine or a drivetrain problem?)
Have you checked the throttle wire to make sure there is no catch?
Have you checked the idle adjustment/throttle limiting adjustment?
Have you checked the alternator belt? Can you rotate the belt with the engine off? Will it rotate when you remove the alternator? (If it is a bad alternator, I suspect you could replace it yourself).
Is the stuffing box/shaft seal/stern tube o.k?
How do you know about the barnacles on the propeller shaft? Did you haul the boat out?
