Re: Yanmar YQM15 - hard starting

It seems like I remember getting that technique out of the Yanmar book somewhere. I've only needed to use it in the later fall. With typical sailing weather temps in the upper Chesapeake (upper 60s on up) our 25-yr-old 2GM20F starts in a second or two with the speed control back at idle.
