Expected life of Yanmar 3YM20

I know the life of motor depends on many little aspects, but assuming a good maintanance, how many hours this kind of motors can make before a full refurbish.

fair winds, or inexpensive fuel!!!

Life is an experiment, use the right tools and elements, and you'll do fine.

Re: Expected life of Yanmar 3YM20

Hi,

IMHO, a properly maintained diesel should last well over 5000 hours. Again IMHO, I suspect that more marine diesels die because the block / case / heads rot from salt air / water environment than wear out from hours of operation.
