Yanmar 2GM20F Maintenance
Hello Forum, I am a newbie - just bought a '79 Catalina 27'. The original engine was a Petters (sp?) and it currently has a Yanmar 2GM20F inboard diesel. I've heard the engine is worth more than the boat. Ha!
At any rate, I have scoured the web, and am not finding any kind of a simple maintenance checklist. I am not one to be very mechanically inclined, though I have successfully replaced the impeller, mixing elbows in order to resolve engine overheat.
The previous owner did not sail her very often and as such, I want to start fresh with all of the maintenance needs so I have a base level and feel comfortable with any upkeep going forward.
Any ideas of what book or guide or manual I can rely on for upkeep?
