Re: Diesel Identification

I bet it's the original engine. If you're serious about the boat, have a mechanic go over the engine. I wouldn't buy a boat with a non-starting engine, but I might be willing to investigate. You'd think the dealer would do this so he knows what to tell prospective buyers. There are many circa 1980 Yanmars chugging along just fine out there. Mine is a 1981.
