The fill cap gasket is a strange thing - and the local dealer no longer sells Yanmar 4BY2 Parts.

Any idea where I can order a Yanmar OIL FILL cap - the square thing on top on the engine? thanks.

Hi Stu,
I looked up the part numbers. The Cap/cover is 165000-71020, the gasket is 165000-68020. Do an internet search on the part numbers and you may come up with something. How about going through Mastry Engines in FL?

I had planned to call Mastry in the morning. None of the usual places I look up part numbers list internal parts for the 4BY any longer. I guess there aren't many around and apparently it is no longer available.

I plan to call on Monday - and visit the local parts store this afternoon.

Any idea if BMW put the engine in any of their production automobiles? if so, it should be easy to find an oil filler cap gasket -- I'm not sure if the cap itself is damaged.

I see no signs of excessive blow-by if I run the hot engine with the cap off - so I'm guessing it is just oil being thrown on the cap by the timing chain located just below the opening.

Thanks for the tip.

As expected, Mastry Marine, the South Florida Yanmar distributor, won't sell me the needed Oil Fill cap and gasket. They only sell to dealers.

Anyone know of a mail order place that will risk violation of Yanmar rules and sell parts to a mortal, real live, boater?

It is hard enough owning an orphan engine without an openly hostile dealership network to back them up. /Stu

Mastry can’t refer you to a dealer in their territory?

Where are you now? If you are going to Marathon there is a Yanmar there , Marathon Diesel (305) 743-7116

Thank you. I’m in Delray Beach. Really looking to mail order. I’ll call them and see if they will ship.


Easier to buy an AR-15 than a Yanmar part.
