The 12v 6lp dte is 260hp.It's not particularly popular in the UK as most people went for the higher hp 300/315 but the 12v is still a very good engine with less to go wrong and doesn't suffer from the potential valve stem seal issues of some of the earlier 24v engines
Belt should be changed on hours or time but not sure on the recommended time for change I'd expect about 5-6 years so at 15 years it's on borrowed time
Good thing is its one of the easiest belts to change you'll ever come across
(Assuming you can get access to the front)

Looks like a bit of room, but not sure if it will just swing out of the way as yanman suggested. Do you know if the left side is also attached with hose or is it bolted?

Cheers Larry

Timing belt yanmar 6LP

On the cylinder head above the injection pump / lifting eye the water manifold is secured by 2 nuts with washers an gasket that seals the manifold to head.

then half way down the manifold underneath there is a support bracket an the bolt 14mm or 12 head that needs to be removed .

Next on the exhaust manifold there's a rubber hose joint un do 1 of the hose clips an pull forward there should be enough room to remove the timing belt cover , make sure you drain the coolant down an remove any out of the manifold as this will drip / spew all over the belt an idler pulley an you don't want that .

Hope this helps
