Anyone have the cost-breakdown of the major (1,00HR/4yr) service on the YANMAR 4JH3-HTE?
I am interested primarily in the hours of labour expended by an experienced marine mechanic.
Scope of Works is (roughly, and not in sequence):
+ Remove and re-install fuel injectors (off-site: check pressure & spray atomising pattern, adjust on condition)
+ Drain oil, inspect the engine oil cooler*, clean on condition (*may need a new gasket)
+ Check clearance on intake and exhaust valves, adjust on condition (may include lapping if necessary)
+ Drain the fuel filter, and replace the fuel filter element
+ Inspect all hoses, replace on condition
+ Inspect seawater pump, replace impeller plus service as required
+ Drain engine coolant, clean & check the cooling water passages, replace engine coolant
+ Inspect mixing elbow; repair, replace on condition
+ Turbo-charger: Wash blower; Inspect outlet/exhaust turbine, clean on condition
I do the routine stuff myself these days, but interested in the the time taken for valves and injectors in particular, if folks got these jobs done as 'one offs'. I am getting various quotes and, in assessing these, I'm interested in folks' _actual_ experience.
Thanks, and with kind regards,
