Re: Yanmar 2GMF problems

Basic problem is the lack of use..change all the filters and tighten all the belts. Fuel may need to be polished or replaced with fresh. Check and clean water intake screen. Check and clean silencer(air filter). Check transmission oil level. Depending on age of the mixing elbow..it maybe in need of servicing. Again these are basic issues that can be done your self. Also there was no mention of any colored smoke on start up or under load which can lead to problem solving of various issues.. The service manual for that particular Yanmar is your friend..
