Re: Yanmar 3GM oil line failure

A pic would be good. I know my 30 year old 3gmd has corrosion on the oil line. The corrosion gets worse on the lower parts of the oil line- because it has seen the most sea water spray or drips...

Re: Yanmar 3GM oil line failure

Sounds like it could be a problem.

Re: Chain Plates

Titanium nuts and bolts and washers are super expensive- I would guess due to the high machining cost and also low demand. Stainless 316 are relatively ultra cheap. My bolts are all internal to the...

Re: Chain Plates

I would choose 316 ss (THE- South Korean made) bolts mainly based on cost, and the questionable quality of a nut and bolt made in China. The 316 could be changed out easily one at a time and at a...

Re: Chain Plates

Re: Chain Plates

I was also considering Titanium. One concern is that most material seems to come from China. Maybe that is ok, but Chinese sometimes have problems with quality control and counterfeit material.
