I have a question....
I read the question about basis bmw engine for the Yanmar 260 6by shortblock.
I am in the same situation, though My yanmar engine is the updated version 2. Boat is from 2008, so i guess engine is from that year or maybe earlier.
Does yanmar make Any changed to the basis engine?
