  1. Yanmar 3GMD: Rydlyme or other marine descaler in older engine

    Diesel
    Hi Sailnet, I've recently acquired a 30 year old Yanmar 3GMD which runs at 67C (152.6F) at the crankcase when revved to 1800rpm after a few minutes. This is a little hot for my liking as I'd like to try and get it to 2000rpm if possible - beating into 25knt wind in a very narrow and shallow...
  2. does rydlyme work ?

    Gear & Maintenance
    Has anyone used this product to descale their engine or refrig heat exchanger? Is this a regular maintenance issue in salt water boats? The head salts up and I use hot white vinegar, am worried about the engine and refrig. Any help will be appreciated.
