Re: Full throttle needed to start Yanmar 2GM20F

Cold start procedures for a 3GM30F(an indirect injection diesel) is similar..full throttle as described in the workshop manual which retards timing. Decrease throttle after diesel starts.

DO NOT use any starting type of sprays/fluids as this procedure may result in bent con rods. I personally know what bent rods look like...
