Mitsubishi Diesel Info Needed Please

Hi
Cannot get any further info until after Memorial Day, but I was told this is a 6 cyl Mitsubishi engine in a 1979 26' power boat. No further info. Someone else said from the photo it could be a 4 cyl.
Until I get more info and photos, does anyone have any experience or thoughts on the engine? I believe Bayliner used them early in their 38' boats.
Any information or further sources would be appreciated.
Next I will try boatdiesel.com
Thanks , Stuart

Boatdiesel.com might provide a treasure trove of information. In addition to the smart people, there are documents, manuals, etc.

Good Luck

Bayliner used " Hino" diesels which they marinized themselves.

It is probably an auto or light truck conversion.


After you find the model used,, NAPA will have filters and belts and the "Da Book" the service and rebuild manual ($75 to $100+) may be available from the car or truck dealer.

Was a fairly common marine diesel in the late 70's and early 80"s. Bayliner did use quite a few of these.
Technically a Chrysler Mitsubishi CM-655TI and around 200HP. Also sometimes known as a Mitsubishi 6DS7.
Do a search using those terms and you will get plenty of hits including parts sources. Some parts are hard to come by, and the few suppliers that have them new are pretty proud of them.
These are pretty robust and reliable engines. But given that most of them in service are 40 years old.....

Will start the research using these models until confirmation on Tues when the shop re opens from the weekend holiday. Yeah, have been getting good reports, but no known engine hours and 40 yrs old certainly a factor.
One the other side, one owner last 20 yrs. a good one, no salt water use, and only seasonal use balance it out a bit..
Thanks and will check back in once I know for a fact the engine model,
Stuart
