Are you referring to the drain on the engine block (located on starboard side, with transmission toward stern)? Or is it a drain on the heat exchanger, etc.

If it is the engine block drain, are you just trying to open it, to drain it, or do you need to remove it (ie stripped, won't close properly, etc)?

Mine is a 2GM, but drain looks the same. Wrench opens it, allows coolant top drain out!

It's the drain plug midway on the hose coming from the heat exchanger. Its completely round, not a hex head.

Sorry, mine is not fresh water cooled-no heat exchanger - can't help!

Do you have a manual?

If not, here is a link to an on-line manual. Click on Yanmar, manuals, marine, ym, etc..

Cascade Engine Center | Diesel Engines | Home

It may talk about it under servicing / winterizing, etc.
