Is this Diesel Yamaha actually a Yanmar?
I am about to re-power my precious Cal 2-30 (1970), Picante.
She currently has in a Universal M4-30 (25 HP) diesel which previously replaced an Atomic 4.
I am being offered an unused Yamaha ME-125, 2 cylinder diesel, raw water cooled with hand and electric start, 23 HP.
I must say I have never heard of such a beast and can find no links on the net so I am concerned about parts should I need them replaced later on.
Someone said she looks like a Yanmar 2GM???
Is it a rebadged Yanmar and if so which one. Have you ever heard of this engine before?
I hear they may be in Cuba, New Zealand or Japan.
Finally what would be your recommedation for a bolt in Yanmar replacement for my M4-30. This Yamaha is massive and is going to require a lot of work to make it fit.
