The heat exchanger sits right on top of the engine, starboard side. It's not something separate, although obviously you can remove it for cleaning, etc. But it's all cheek by jowel so to speak.

Ah, that explains a lot, thanks. Very different from my experience.

That's what I LOVE about this place.

I've had the pleasure of a Yanmar deputy service manager on my boat for some troubleshooting and I asked same question as I couldn't seem to find the anode/zinc. He told me they don't have it for 2GM20F. Not required.

I have a 3gmf

I was told that I needed to change out the zincs in the engine. This is a new (110 hours now) engine, fresh water cooled. I went to the dealer. He explained that the fresh water cooled engines do not have zincs. Period. Only the raw water cooled Yanmars have engine zincs.
