I love Yanmar Diesels
We're scheduled to splash on Friday (I hope) so I was down at the yard doing the final prep work. One of the things we do is fire the motor on the hard for 10 minutes to make sure it fires alright and was bled properly. Today would be the first time we fired our motor since November 10.
Connect the battery, turn the key, push the button, motor catches in less than two seconds on the first try. My neighbor was impressed. Ran it for 10 minutes, good water flow, a just a hint of normal very light gray smoke, and it sounded nice and smooth. Upped the RPMs to 2000 for a few minutes and everything looked great.
Can't wait till Friday.
I hope everyone can get in the water soon and has a great season.
If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
