Re: A general question on expectations from Yanmar parts dealers.

Amazed at this. We seem to have no trouble getting Yanmar parts from the dealers around here without knowing the numbers for our 1982 3gm22.They find it pretty easily, order the part, and when it comes, it fits and does what it’s supposed to.

I have had trouble with my lawnmower repair shop on this issue, because my 40 year-old Simplicity tractor has part numbers that have gone through perhaps three iterations and the company has been sold once or twice. And the shop isn’t a Simplicity dealer. And the parts are no longer made. Don’t think Yanmar’s had that much turmoil. There’s little excuse for the treatment you’re getting. A marine parts dealer can’t be crazy busy this time of year, even in Virginia. Perhaps you should call the shop you normally use and have them send it to you. It would save you having to walk and withstand the abuse.
