Yanmar 2QM15 Rebuild

Hi,

In early July, I came to my boat after being away for three week and found the engine seized. It was locked up solidly, in that it would not budge even a little bit after soaking the cylinders with Marvel Mystery oil for several days. It turned out to be a blown head gasket which let salt water into a cylinder.

I hauled the engine out with the boom and rebuilt it for a cost of only parts and machine shop work. The engine is back in and is working great. I have posted photos online if anyone is interested.

Unless you live near a Yanmar distributer, knowing which part numbers to order can be time consuming and costly. I include my list below in order that it may help someone down the road.

My total cost was about $825.


Machine shop work

Cylinder head work $300
Honing piston rod bushings to fit piston pins $40

Ya did good!!! The QM series can easily make it to 10,000 engine hours, even if rebuilt.

Re: Yanmar 2QM15 Rebuild

Nice going my 3GM rebuild was $3,000. However there was more than just a cracked head, there was much welding to do. Any way Yanmars are great, fuel sipping powerful moters.

Yes, I did look there, but I could not find a parts manual for the 2QM15.

Re: Yanmar 2QM15 Rebuild

I want to add another point regarding Yanmar exhaust mixing elbows.

The 2QM15 service manual lists the part numbers for the two mixing elbow options(see pages 11-10 & 11-11) . Part number 124070-13500 is for the downward angled elbow. The U-type mixing elbow option is part number 124070-13520.

The Yanmar list price for the part number 124070-13520 is $186.26. There is an option for a cheaper (both price and part quality) yanmar mixing elbow. Yanmar part number 128270-13600 which lists for $147.16.

I was reluctant to go with the cheaper mixing elbow because I was told the cheaper one last only a year before needing to be replaced, and in the long run one can save $$ getting the better unit.

I search around and found that HGE manufactures the the better U-type mixing elbow. The part number is HGE3520. One can buy it online for about $70!

See "www.mmiseattle.com/e/manifolds_e_hge_yanmar.htm" or "bpi.ebasicpower.com/c/YAN-D-EXH/Exhaust%20Parts%20for%20Yanmar%20Diesel%20Inboards".

I purchased one from MMISeattle (great folks), and it came with a 3 year warranty!

Thumbs up Re: Yanmar 2QM15 Rebuild

Great job! I'm doing a similar job on my 2qm15 and am using your parts list! Thanks! I am needing sending units for the water and the oil. Do you happen to have the part #'s for those items?

Again, great job. I hope I can do the same.

Re: Yanmar 2QM15 Rebuild

Sorry, I don't know these numbers. My guess is that they are standard. The only concern would be to see us the temperature sends differ for raw water cooling versus a fresh water system.

Re: Yanmar 2QM15 Rebuild

Dreuge,
Thanks for great post. I have a similar set up with a 30 year old Yanmar 3GMD and will be looking at having to do the same in the not to distant furture I am sure.

Did you notice any changes in exhaust or operation before the engine siezed up?

I get some white exhaust (steam?) when I run my direct sea water cooled engine and am wondering if it is sea water entering the cylinder through a bad head gasket. Thinking maybe somtime soon I should pull the engine and spilt the head and block, clean all the cooling passages, replace head gasket.

Also, I have been flushing with fresh water after use, maybe buy a little more time out of her.

Regards
