Re: Yanmar "Starting to use oil"

I did a partial engine rebuild of my Yanmar 2GM myself, without prior engine experience. I spent $2,000 on JUST parts! with the rate of labor costs, it could easily cost 3 times that amount for someone else to do the work.

Get a mechanic to look it over before going too far in a purchase process. Compression test might give an idea of what's going on too.
