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