Kanzaki KM4A Transmission Repair Kit

I am currently in St. Kitts with leaking transmission seals. Does anyone know a source for a repair kit for the Kanzaki KM4A transmission?

Re: Kanzaki KM4A Transmission Repair Kit

Kanzaki is owned by Yanmar who has a very strict reseller program. You will need to find a Yanmar dealer.

I think the closest is in St John, Antigua. Marine Power Service.

You can search here: Dealer Locator | Yanmar

If all you need are the seals, you should be able to find them through other sources. Kanzaki does not make seals. They buy them from a seal manufacturer.

Re: Kanzaki KM4A Transmission Repair Kit

not sure if Torrensen will ship to the Islands. They likely have the parts.

Re: Kanzaki KM4A Transmission Repair Kit

Thank you. Talked to Torrensen. You are right, they can not ship to the islands. Fortunatley I have a guest coming down from the US in a couple of weeks so they can bring the parts. In the meantime I will look at the dealers - perhaps I can get them to do a rebuild for a reasonable price.
