I have just ( nearly) aquired a older yam 30 2s. Manual tilt trim and not even sure if its electric start !
I think its the same as XS400 has on the back of his boat ?
I know the 40 & 50 are 'THE' engine for an SR and I understand to be fairly robust and long lived , but I'm wondering if the 30 has any known areas I should be overly worried about apart from the normal stuff?
Its on the back of my latest plaything to keep me busy in the summer gales...
If you've been watching Ebay (seems to be a pastime for me this summer instead of actually being able to use the boat) I am sure you will know which one I mean.
I'll try and grab some photos...
