I have recently taken out the tank on my Dehler as inspection of the diesel tank identified what looked like half a pound of tea leaves. I stank for a few days but was pleased with the outcome.
Just had a compression test on my Yanmar 3gm30 resulting in cylindres 1 to 3 having 300, 260, 260 psi compression. The manual states 340 psi.
In a previous thread I was seeking a good mechanic within the Brighton area to undertake some initial troubleshooting, I received zero replies. Obviously concerned as do not wish to pay £60 for the on-site mechanics, especially when the neighbouring yacht owner was handed a bill for 1200 pounds following a blocked inlet causing overheating. they had undertaken every check, renewing parts on the way but did not do the primary task of checking the strainer. Absolute true storey and he paid the bill.
Anyway, can anyone suggest what my options are and do they know someone who can fix the engine at a reasonable cost.
