Often at least they can give you the "trade" discount.

*TRUTH*...you never get the discount you dont *ASK* for

Re: Yanmar parts prices!

I always try to negotiate the price. That is sort of the standard way of doing business in this area. Some just refuse to play...

Re: Yanmar parts prices!

During my research for a repower, information I found like this was one of the primary factors in my choice to re-power with a Beta instead of a Yanmar which is a purpose built marine engine and therefore parts are more likely to be proprietary. I can buy a lot of parts at the local Kubota tractor dealer

Re: Yanmar parts prices!

Diesel parts are pretty easy to acquire on the internet, if you're not in a rush. Prices vary widely. Shop around.

I try to support the local businesses too and will pay a bit more for things, but not blindly.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Re: Yanmar parts prices!

One can find plenty of parts at reasonable prices if you just look. Yanmar does not make the alternator. Mitsubishi does. depending on your purpose, you can find perfectly suitable stuff on line. I bought an alternator from Spider Marine in Florida for around $150. The Yanmar branded is many times that. in fact, the guy at our local Yanmar place suggested i try OReillys for an Alt. Of course, if you need a high output like a Ballmar, an automotive alternator is not going to cut it. I needed to pull a stuck injector and found the tool on e-bay through a tractor supply place in TX. Starters can be found for a fraction of the price. Oil filters can be purcased at an auto supply place. I use a Baldwin 277 (i think) and it costs me $7.50.

Re: Yanmar parts prices!

Bringing back this old thread... Paid approx. 38 bucks for a raw water impeller was bad enough last year..but now paid 45 bucks for the same part this year is getting ridiculous ..

Some one posted equivalent Yanmar parts,?Jeff H or Rich H?, a location. Can that individual repost that site again.
