  1. I am interested in understanding how the Yanmar 3HM35f engine is different and what components to service when & where on the engine. I may buy a boat with one…Any advice appreciated.

  6. Thanks for the video. I have just ordered 2 Yanmar 57hp diesel engines for my Catamaran Build that I am am currently working on. I really appreciate the detail you are going to in your videos. If you are interested I am compiling a never ending video series on the 40 foot Catamaran build and would appreciate your feedback and advice on engine access and maintenance once these are installed. Cheers Rossco. Link here to my series for a good laugh :

  12. Nicely done Dave and that little engine does look fascinating to work on. Keeping that oil changed will let that engine last forever. Keep up the good work!

  13. That is a nice compact engine, and yanmar is a known quality company :-D.

    I would call it a good chugger, not hyper fast but very very reliable, ive known some old honda motorbike engines that have that feel :-D.
    A chugger is allways worth the trouble :-).

  14. How would you go about removing that engine if it were necessary? By the looks of it that would be a real pisser! Thanks for sharing this video.
