My Yanmar Diesel is officially dead. Does anyone know where I might find a rebuild or even a new diesel?
Thanks in advance,

Is yours a 1GM ?  What proved fatal?  Sometimes they can be rebuilt.  Mine has been overhauled once and has given me over 1000 hours of good service since.

I think the successor engine, the 1GM10 is available from Yanmar dealers. If you race, you might consider installing a sail drive unit . . . I wonder if there is any experience with them among the owners.

I have a 1GM10, no problems.

The only experience I have heard with a saildrive is the lower unit rusting out and the parts were ungodly expensive - to the point of the owner trying to find used parts.

It may be different saildrive, or the same, but Arne Jonosson in Alameda CA has a "super compact saildrive" 12.5 hp, super quiet, epoxy coated below the water, 110lbs, with charger, 4 stroke, $5,600...it is gas though . . .

The new 1GM10 will fit but the old transmission will not the new clutch is too long.

I have had excellent service on Yanmar engines and parts from the Mack Boring Co., Union, NJ. (www.mackboring.com)

They are a Yanmar distributor and rebuilder.

Somehow are another Manhattan Magic ended up with a Yanmar 2 cyl. engine making, I think 15 or 18 horses. Does anyone else have this setup and what kind of engine performance can we expect, it should be fairly good. We do a lot of 30 to 50 mile deliveries here on the Gulf Coast to regattas from New Orleans and the "Lake"  to Pensacola Fla. and are looking forward to the enhanced performance under power.

Here's the status of my 1GM10 yanmar -> we have pretty much epoxied it together and alas, it seems to be holding together. Took it up to 3200 rpm on a test run then backed it down, did some zig zags to simulate stress and it held. So - I think it will get me through the rest of the season - then I'll probably look for a new one. This sucker doesn't want to die.

After replacing some oil lines in my boat, the fitting on the oil pan for the oil line was cracked. Was not leaking prior, however, was pissing oil after the replacement. Must have been some good rust holding it together.

Anyways, a mechanic out in block island recommended Marine Tex to seal the crack. Was looking for any solution to get me through the season. After thoroughly cleaning the area, replacing the oil line, then applying the marine tex over it, it sealed. Been running on it for the past two months, works well. Will probably replace the oil pan in the winter, however, a good short term fix!

Same gig with my engine - the pan basically disintegrated when we took the oil line out. Cleaned it all up - threaded the line back in with marine tex. Waited 2 days and bongo. It works.
