Wish someone would do this for a Yanmar...

Imagine if someone did a teardown on a 3GM30

If you are good it's almost that fast. I once watched a guy assemble a high performance Chevy small block at Edelbrocks in less than 2 hours. Of course, he had everything neatly laid out and ready to go but still....

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken, opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Wish someone would do this for a Yanmar...

11 MONTHS???????
That ain't an accomplishment to be applauded that is an outrage to be ridiculed. It's a bog standard british engine with parts available from any number of mail order houses. That is a weekend worth of 12 hour days to tear down and rebuild...if you're mentally disabled and only have a metric socket set missing 42% of the sockets, two hammers and three screw drivers.
11 months... this explains so many blogs and articles about the 5 year restoration of bug-eye Sprites.

Speaking of yanmars...

I'm not sure why yanmars are so intimidating. they are the AC/DC of marine engines- starightforward, user-friendly, great results from limited tools and thoroughly enjoyable without any deep thinking.

If you need a youtube video to walk you through a yanmar GM series teardown, i expect your shoes likely have velcro straps.

Maybe he chose the government post for parts delivery instead of FedEx


I think what took time was to capture each step (right down to the unscrewing of the oil filter) on a stop motion camera! This video is more of a piece of performance art than actual technical feat of accomplishment.

Still would have preferred the choice of a marine diesel over a car engine. Could have had the added effect of hoisting the old engine out of a boat

Re: Wish someone would do this for a Yanmar...

Bought back a few memories I used to sell fix and race BMC A and B series engines. Lovely honest lumps of cast iron and a doddle to work on. Any mechanic working for me who took more than a day and a half to strip clean and rebuild one would have had a flea in his ear and have been missing any bonus.
