Re: Yanmar 2gm black smoke

Did you check your fuel filters? What is a portable tank? Will it rev fine in neutral? Is there a chance your prop is fouled? Could you have sucked water from your fuel source? Can you play with the decompression levers and see if there is a problem on just one of your cylinders?
