Cod,

Is the engine fresh water cooled? And are there any glow plugs. If fresh water cooled and no glow plugs the model # is 2GM20F. With that engine you will have trouble starting it if it's cold outside.

It's definitely worth getting yourself a book on the engine, codmander--a Yanmar service manual, even a third-party one like the Clymer manual, will save you a bunch of guessing.

codmander---- here is a tip for starting a cold engine that is getting fuel, but just puts out white smoke when you crank it. you have to heat the incoming air. remove the air cleaner, take a propane torch and put the flame into the intake manifold while the engine is cranking. the extra heat in the air raises the final compression temperature enough so the fuel will fire. some truck engines had a burner in the intake manifold to do this, & some use electric heating coils to do this
