Yamaha Inboard Diesel-6Cyl 315hp

Does anyone know where I can find, on the web, a manual on this engine.
Specifically I am looking for the meaning of codes given (I think) by the flashing of various lights on the control panel.

Hi Brian,

I dont beleive this engine has any kind of fault code read out as you are describing as there is no ECU or anything just a good old diesel pump and a few sensors on our version - did they produce a newer version I wonder??

Email me about the lights, I have the operators manual here (paper copy).

Here is the service manual, but I cant work out how to save it, only how to print it!!

Fink I may have a new, genuine injector pump for this lump if you need one.

Brian has kindly pointed out he has a YAMAHA engine.

However, I am interested in collecting spares for the 6LP as we run it for light commercial work - PM me ??

No, sorry guys, but no-one is giving me the "right" answer on this one.

Firstly, has no-one got an on-line reference to this manual?

Secondly, my specific problem at the moment is:
That on my YAMAHA engine I have a set of lights on a control panel. This panel has, on its top row, a light for warming the diesel (shaped like a horizontal coil) on the left, and on the right is the "Gear in Neutral" light. We can ignore the others.
When I first switch on, they both come on, after a few seconds the warming light goes out and then I start the engine. Then after a couple of minutes the warming light comes back on, blinking twice. Then goes out for 5 secs. then blinks twice and so on.
It looks like it is trying to tell me something? The engine is "signalling" isnt it?
If I switch off, then on again, it behaves normally???

I also see from the Electronics section that this type of question has been asked before with the result that Yamaha dont seem to publish their manuals, even if you are prepared to pay for them. But surely someone must have a workshop manual somewhere? How about Redbay, for example?

Confused of Peel here??
Any ideas?
Anybody?

Yamaha 315 diesel engines

Hi Brian,
PM me your address and I will send you a CD copy of the work shop manual for all the Yamaha diesel engines.

If it's the glow plug light that's flashing my engines do that as there is some kind of air box heaters to reduce smoke on start up.

Mollers, please PM me a price for the fuel pump.

All the best Callum.

Oh they have a whole shelf of 'em! Did Scorpion throw theirs away?

Willk,

They never gave me one. Never even offered.
As I have said, there is nothing on the net either.

Yamaha vs Yanmar

So tell us Brian, how does the Yamaha compare to the Yanmar?

Same 6cyl. Same HP.

Yamaha more reliable in terms of drives I assume.
Fuel consumption?
Driveability?

I recall you sacraficed a lot of top speed moving away from the Yanmar/Bravo 3 combo to acheive reliability, so assume you're a lot quicker now.

I am really glad I did change.
The Yamaha is:
quieter
has through the prop exhaust-so no dirty, troublesome elephant trunk
silent, easy peasy gear shift-Yamaha control so engine tilt is on gear change lever
separate, sealed (no topping up) oil system in the leg
engine has , of course two fan belts, both of which are identical!!

But:
no range of props to choose from

Additionally the boat is quicker (has been to 45knots, downhill, with the wind behind it, low fuel etc). Though this is probably because it is a lot lighter than Cyanide.
I dont know if this is because of Yamaha but my engine/boat is now 4 years old, goes like a train and the engine-well you could eat your dinner off it.
