Do you have engine numbers right? Typical Yanmar engine in that boat is 4LH-something or 4JH-something. The "something" suffix can be STE, DTE, etc. And genset is usually 3TN-something. And two engines or one? HP rating? There is a tag on the top of each engine giving full specs.

Yanmar

That's really all the info I have at the present. This was a new engine put in in 2000, owner did the great loop, has 1900 hrs on it. The genset is kohler
Only one engine
Thanks for quick reply

Then it must be the Yanmar 4LH-DTE. One of the best engines ever built by Yanmar.
