    It's not an hours thing, sometimes low hour motors are shot, and others at a few thousand are still OK

    Hey Micky it was a dealer here on the west coast. Iím sure it was Chivers marine. Itís worth it as these engines usually last up to 2000hrs and beyond when looked after

    Ok so today Justin and Chris of Northside Marine attended Scarborough Marina to inspect and service both engines out of the water. Gearboxes removed and exhaust tubes inspected. No problems at all! Shock. Justin was obviously a very senior Mechanic. Both men were Professional and communicated well. The whole exercise took half a day.
    I am still mystified why the Brisbane Yamaha mechanics said i needed new engines.
    End of a stressful saga .
    Thanks for all ypur helps.
    Cheers Micky Flinders.

    I have read a lot about this problem. however, I have not read about any Australian that has had this problem.
    Brisbane Yamaha say they will not attempt a repair as they said they did one once and it was extremely difficult. In their exact words "we will not be touching it" . This sort of leaves me high and dry. Has anyone repaired this problem? Should I not spend any money on the engines and get new ones? Apart from this problem the engines have been problem free. The vessel is in Scarborough Brisbane.
