Many thanks for your email, very interesting thank you. Was this an original Amel installation on your boat?
One question, I don´t see a breathing (venting) valve on either loops. Can it work that way?
I enjoy very much your very orderly way of describing and documenting your work onboard. Very useful indeed.

Good afternoon Alex,
Here is a picture of the anti- siphon on my vessel, I have the Volvo TMD 22 P http://www.nikimat.com/volvo_tmd22p_missing_hoses/volvo_tmd22p_missing_hoses_4.jpg
Don’t look at the arrows, they are for something else.
The BIG black hose is the exhaust.
Behind it is a yellow/black hose going to the top of the picture to a metallic half circle, that is the anti- siphon.
I will also sent you directly via email a page of the SM2K Owner Manual showing the Yanmar anti- siphon.
Let me know if you receive it.

afternoon, does anyone have
images or a diagram of an anti- siphon installation on the raw water side of the engine cooling system? I am considering this step in addition to a few others to avoid water backing into the engine exhaust system on the Yanmar 4JH4-HTE (repowered) on our Older Maramu.
