Re: gps wiring?

I have also had the "no fix" GPS issue.
Unplugging the cables under the master unit in the electronic cabinet and resetting them solved the problem.
I think we are dealing with very low voltages here and any resistance causes a "no fix"

Re: 4JH3-HTE Engine problem

John,
Yes, I bought them online at E-Bay
Go to E-Bay and search for Yanmar Exhaust Elbow
It is listed as L3 SS Exh Elbow replaces 129673-13552 @ $270. ea
Be sure to get new exhaust gaskets also
Hopefully you won't twist off a stud which involves removing the turbo and taking it to a machine shop!

Re: 4JH3-HTE Engine problem

I assume you’re talking about the exhaust elbows now.
They are available online cast from 316 as at a very reasonable price. I’ve had them on AllezCatII for a few years with no problems

Re: $29 can safe you thousands $$$

Dick,
This is why I installed a raw water failure alarm on AllezCatII to alert if there is any loss of cooling to the exhaust system.
It is easy to install at minimal cost.
Borelmfg.com
Glad the outcome wasn’t worse!

Re: 4JH3-HTE Engine problem

No carbon buildup, just rust
Used a small drum stone tool and a small drum sanding cylinder in the Dremel to remove rust.
Then mate the two pieces to see if the wheel spins freely

Propshaft pitting

Has anyone experienced shaft pitting under the Tides lip seals causing leaks? I now have this on both shafts and am considering replacing both Tides seals and moving them slightly so they ride on a smooth part of the shaft. The seals have performed admirably until now.

Re: Yanmar Tachometers

Just for info, the surface inlays (decals) on the bridge deck Yanmar instrument panels basically fell apart from exposure to the sun and elements on my PDQ 34 (hull96). After a lot of research I found these are called Yanmar type B panels but was unable to locate a source for just the sticky surface...

Generator Problem

My Northern Lights generator is pumping water out of the coolant overflow tube in a steady stream and the unit is difficult to start. Can I assume the head gasket is blown pressurizing the coolant system? Is coolant getting into the cylinders causing hydraulic lock? Or maybe seawater is getting into...
