Hi guys. Our C&C 29 has a Farymann A30 diesel in her. The tach and most of the other instruments dont work. I'm assuming its because they took out an ATOMIC gas inboard. I was thinking of installing a Tiny Tach. The boat arrives next week so I dont have the engine handy. Does anyone know the fuel injector line diameter. Tiny Tach comes either 6mm or 1/4 inch for their sending unit. Any advice would be helpful.

Re: Farymann

Offhand guess. Farymann diesels were made in Germany therefore dimensions would be in metric, eg., 6 mm.

Good luck getting parts for your Farymann A30. I'm not sure why anyone would replace an Atomic 4 with a Farymann anything except for the alleged cachet of having a diesel engine. Atomic 4's still have reasonably priced parts made in the USA and are pretty easy to work on yourself.
