Changfa for a 12000 Ib Sailboat.
« on: May 29, 2018, 06:32:45 PM »
The Yanmar YSM12 in my 28 ft sailboat is a thing of beauty.

 One cylinder simplicity and the vibration/noise is no big deal (Solid mounts =more simplicity).

 I have my eye on a 36 ft boat (bigger sister to existing).

 Can a Changfa 20 to 30 hp big single be marinized?

 I have a spare transmission Kanzaki. 2:1.

 Has anybody put a Single Cyl Changfa in a boat?

 And where can one be had in Canada?

 Much Obliged

 Doog

In Asia the Changfa style engine is a popular marine engine...

One day, China and other countries in the Far East will discover Health & Safety (OSHA, etc.)

In the meantime, we get to enjoy looking at proper old-school bodging (and I mean that in the best engineering sense of the word). Excellent stuff, thanks for the links!
Cheers!

Hey veggie, great videos showing some great ingenuity. I wonder how they check the oil level on an engine mounted at a thirty degree angle.
