Re: Yanmar 1 GM will not start

Had the same issue with my 1gm yanmar... Found it was the mixing elbow. To help that 1gm start, warm the engine with a small ceramic heater, it doesn't take long. If the compression is lower than you think it well help on startup. winter time i do this to save on that tiny little starter that yanmar thinks is made of platinum. good luck
