1. Does the noise come in at 2500, and then disappear again with increasing revs? I've got the same noise from your description, comes in at 2000, disappears at 2200. Therefore no worry really.
2. Are you sure that it's an engine noise, and not a harmonic from some other structural component? I had that on my last Yanmar, and it turned out to be a slightly loose panel.
1.Haven't tried as when I heard it we were motorsailing (10° heal) decreased revvs and it diminished to nothing. Shut down
and only used at 2200 since. (twice very short runs)
2. The harmonic from prop shaft is low frequency about 1200rpm and I just go thru it quickly.
This is more a "pingy rattly " noise like a loose plate.
Props clean, but will check again. Also maybe do and engine alignment check.
We've had some rough passages of late.
Hi wheels, Don't fancy checking clearances today, so I'll leave that until I've nothing left to check!
I'm curious aboat where you are supposed to fill oil to though as are the dipstick marks right for
the angle the yanmar is setup?
Thanks guys..... all the best for NY!!!
