Yanmar 3qm30h to replace old volvo
Hello salts, looking for any info I can get on a Yanmar 3qm30h diesel motor. I have been looking for a good motor to replace my old Volvo that was over heated and destroyed by previous owner, and have pretty much had my sights set on beta or Yanmar, and since I haven't seen one single used beta and going price is 7-8 grand for size I need Yanmar is ideal. So here's the deal I'm looking at a Yanmar 3qm30h that comes with a second identical motor that I can use for parts, but year and hours are unknown. I would like to get it re built from the get go, how much does that usually cost, and is it necessary? I am 22 years old with very little knowledge about diesel motors but really want to learn all about them so when I get stranded while cruising I can fix it my self. Is it realistic I can just start tinkering and reading and be able to make this motor work well in my 33' sailboat. Please any info on good help in the Baltimore Annapolis area, or general info on the 3qm30h model that yanmar made. Thanks a million guys and galls.
