Understanding YANMAR engine model codes
Most engine model designations are on an engine data plate, on the front or the top of the engine. Some older engines have the data plate on the adapter plate between the engine and the gearbox . Here are some examples of engine model codes and their meanings: YSE8 Y= horizontal cylinder, lying down.
SE = engine model type or block type.
8=8 horsepower
If an engine model does not have the Y in the beginning, the engine has a vertical cylinder or cylinders. The numbers 1, 3, 4, and 6 indicate the number of cylinders. For example, 3GM is a 3 cylinder engine with a GM type block. A 2GM is a 2 cylinder engine with a GM type block, and so on.
A 3GM30 is a 3GM that has a larger bore and therefore develops more horsepower than its predecessor. The 1GM, 2GM and 3HM were also uprated to 1GM10, 2GM20 and 3HM35 respectively, note, the suffix numbers are not the horsepower of the engine.
All of the above engines are either ‘raw water’ cooled or ‘fresh water’ cooled. An engine with an enclosed cooling system containing fresh water and coolant, in turn cooled by raw water going through a heat exchanger, is a fresh water cooled engine. On engines that are either ‘raw’ or ‘fresh’, below 34hp, the fresh water cooled engine has the letter F in the model designation, i.e. a 3HM35F is a freshwater cooled engine. If the F is absent, it is a ‘raw’ water cooled engine. The JH, LH, LP, LY, CX and KY family of engines are all freshwater cooled. The letter C indicates the engine has a saildrive attached. A 3GM30FC is a 3 cylinder, freshwater cooled engine from the GM family, with a saildrive attached. A 4JH2-BE model is fitted with a down angle gearbox. An M means the engine was shipped from the factory without a gearbox e.g. 6CXM-ETE The 4JH series was uprated to 4JH2 series, then 4JH, series, each series increasing in bore size and horsepower while reducing emission levels to comply with the Bodenzee Regulations in Europe and the EPA / CARB regulations in the USA. 3JH, and 3JH3 versions are also of this family.
The 4LH and 4LHA series are both 4 cylinder engines with the same long block assembled in Japan, but the 4LHA is finally assembled in the USA with US sourced components, the same also applies to the 6LY and 6LYA engines. The models 3JH and over have a suffix in the model code: -E is a normally aspirated export engine
-TE, is a turbocharged, export model engine, -ETE is extra turbocharged -HTE is highly turbocharged, -DTE is deluxe turbocharged
-UTE is ultra turbocharged, -STE is super turbocharged, etc.
When the code has a Z, e.g., 4LHA-STZE, the engine is an inboard outboard model with a Mercruiser sterndrive or ‘Z’ drive.

Y Series
These horizontal models lay down in a low profile. The series was updated three times with the YSE being the earliest model, followed by the YSB and then the YSM. Either a 2:1 or 3:1 transmission. The models were sea-water cooled, singe cylinder, heavy duty. This series includes the following engines:

2QM originally only distributed in Japan
2QM15 15 1977 – 1980 2 Cylinder
2QM20 22 1975 – 1980 Engines with serial numbers 0001 – 0030 were prototypes and may require different parts. Engines with serial numbers 80001 – 80930 and 81131 – 81180 were also different from the primary production models and may require different parts. Engines with serial numbers 80931 – 81130 and any serial number higher than 81181 will use standard 2QM20 parts.
2QM20(F) 22 1975 – 1980 2 Cylinder
2QM20(H) 22 1975 – 1980 2 Cylinder
3QM originally only distributed in Japan

GM/HM Series
Introduced in 1980 and 1981 this series was a completely new generation of engines. Lighter, smaller, smoother and quieter than previous engines. An F designation on the model number indicates factory fresh-water cooling. 35 AMP alternators. This series includes the following engines:

Engine HP Years In Production Comments
1GM 7.5 1980 – 1983 Raw
2GM 15 1980 – 1983 Raw

3HM 30 1980 – 1983 Raw
3HMF 30 1980 – 1983 Fresh

GM/HM Bored Up Series
Similar to the earlier standard GM/HM series, these engines provide upgraded horsepower and a 55 AMP alternator (1GM10 35 AMP). Special Note: If your engine serial number starts with an “E” you must make sure that you use parts for the YEU engines. For example, if you have a 2GM20 with a serial number starting with E you actually have a 2GM20YEU. The (YEU) engines are European manufactured and now more common in the United States than the Japan built models. This series includes the following engines:

6CXM-GTE2 500 July 2001 – Present Turbo-Intercooled

Here are some examples of engine model codes and their meanings:
YSE8
Y = horizontal cylinder,
SE = engine “series” or “family”, Latterly [Ed: “Recently”] with the onset of design and production collaborations between Yanmar and other manafacturers the designation of the engine series signifies the companies involved in design & production. i.e. YM – Yanmar Marine, SY – Scania Yanmar, BY – BMW Yanmar,
8 = power rating in this case 8 horsepower. Note, the suffix numbers, although close, are not always the exact horsepower of the engine.
If an engine model does not have the Y in the beginning, the engine has a vertical cylinder or cylinders.
The numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 indicate the number of cylinders.
For example, 3GM is a 3 cylinder engine from the GM series. A 2GM is a 2 cylinder GM series, and so on.
A 3GM30 is a 3GM that has a larger bore and therefore develops more horsepower than its predecessor. The 1GM, 2GM and 3HM were also uprated to 1GM10, 2GM20 and 3HM35 respectively.
All of the above engines are either ‘raw water’ cooled or ‘ fresh water’ cooled.
An engine with an enclosed cooling system containing fresh water and coolant, in turn cooled by raw water going through a heat exchanger, is called a fresh water cooled engine.
An engine that takes the water from outside the boat, pumps it through the cylinder block, cylinder head and then out through the exhaust manifold and exhaust is a ‘raw’ water cooled engine.
On engines that are either ‘raw’ or ‘fresh’, below 34hp, the fresh water cooled engine has the letter F in the model designation. i.e. a 3HM35F is a freshwater cooled engine.
If the F is absent, it is a ‘raw’ water cooled engine.
The YM, JH, BY, LH, LP, LY, CX, KY and SY family of engines are freshwater cooled.
The letter C indicates the engine has a saildrive attached. A 3GM30FC is a 3 cylinder, freshwater cooled engine from the GM family, with a saildrive transmission. Lately a move has been made to standardize the engine models more and the ‘B’ / ‘C’ suffix have been dropped from the model code on engine data plates.
A 4JH2-BE model is fitted with a down angle gearbox.
An M, e.g., 6CXM-ETE, means the engine was shipped from the factory without a gearbox.
The JH series was uprated to the JH2 series, then JH3 series & now the JH4 series. Each series increasing in bore size and horsepower while reducing emission levels to comply with the RCD in Europe and the EPA / CARB regulations in the USA.
The 4LH and 4LHA series are both 4 cylinder engines with the same long block assembled in Japan, but the 4LHA is finally assembled in the USA with US sourced components, the same also applies to the 6LY and 6LYA engines.
The models 3JH and larger have a suffix in the model code:
E is a normally aspirated export model
-TE, is a Turbo charged, Export model
-ETE is Extra Turbo charged, Export model
-HTE is Highly Turbo charged, Export model
-DTE is Deluxe Turbo charged, Export model
-UTE is Ultra turbo charged, Export model
-STE is Super turbo charged, Export model, etc….
A ‘P’, as in 6LYA-STP, is a pleasure boat performance engine. (There is no difference between the ‘P’ and the ‘E’ engines. They have been re-spec’d to show “competitive” horsepower. Yanmar was the only engine manufacturer I know who used to deliver, from the factory, more horsepower than what was stated on the brochure.
When the code has a Z, e.g., 4LHA-STZE, the engine is an inboard outboard model with a Mercruiser sterndrive or ‘Z’ drive.
For those of you who want to know why the codes don’t go in alphabetical order…the Japanese language does not have a Roman alphabet.
Note Engine serial numbers. Engine serial numbers may or may not have prefix letters. The letter ‘E’ indicates the engine was assembled in Europe. Letter ‘E’ prefix European engines are identified in parts listings with the suffix ‘YEU’ (Yanmar European Union). The prefix ‘A’ indicates the engine was assembled in America (USA) . Currently dealers do not have the means to easily cross reference to build date, date of commission, warranty status etc..
Please note that some distributors/dealers may have changed the engine model to satisfy a customer requirement, i.e., changed a 2GM20 from raw to freshwater cooled, so don’t always take the data plate for gospel. If in doubt, ask your dealer.

What our nonprofit Anchors Aweigh Academy and its
EverythingAboutBoats.org website have accomplished so far.

  • Published over 300 website main topic webpages, many with full articles on the topic. See our Website Contents in the Right Sidebar for the listing of the main topic pages.
  • Published over 9,000 marine vendor webpages, all with their contact information, most with a description of their products and services, many with product documentation, specifications and independent reviews. (Includes: Boat designers, boat building tools, material and equipment manufacturers and suppliers, boat builders and dealers, yacht brokers, marine surveyors, boat insurers, boat transporters, skippers and crews, boatyards and marinas, yacht clubs, boat rentals and yacht charters, boating, seamanship and maritime schools, marine law attorneys and expert witnesses, boat refitters and repairers, book authors and publishers, and video producers)
  • Acquired over 120,000 pages of product documentation including Catalogs, Brochures, SpecSheets, Pictures, Serial Number Guides, Installation Manuals, OpManuals, Parts Schematics, Parts Bulletins, Shop Manuals, Wiring Diagrams, Service Bulletins, and Recalls. And have made all viewable to academy members through the EAB website.
  • Acquired over 1,200 books and magazine back issues in our academy library and so far have made over 700 viewable to academy members through the EAB website.
  • Published over 500 DIY How-To articles about boat design, construction, inspection, operation, maintenance, troubleshooting and repair. We are working hard to do more.

We are currently formatting and polishing the Anchors Aweigh Academy online and hands-on courses. The Marine Surveying course has proven to be excellent for both the beginner and the seasoned surveyor, and especially helpful to the Do-It-Yourselfer.

FROM Donald: "This is an awesome website. I found the information that I needed right away from one of the over 20,000 free articles that you provide as a public service. I'm surprised that so much if this site is free. But I still signed up so I could access the thousands of expanded pages, interesting articles, and dozens of valuable programs! The member's library of books, magazines and videos that I can view online is really terrific! I understand that you and your staff are all unpaid volunteers. Please keep up the good work. And I commend you for your plans to add another 10,000 free informative articles over the next year. I'm thrilled to support you in this endeavor with my small membership donation. Thanks again for all your hard work."

FROM Huey: "I agree with my Uncle, I too have found the articles to be very enlightening. They say that it will take about 100,000 articles to cover the full scope that they have envisioned for the website. They have over 20,000 articles so far and that's doing pretty well, but it could take several years to get the rest. I also noticed that many of the Main Topic Pages and some of the article pages are still in the rough draft stage. I guess that they will fill in as they can get volunteers to work on them. But what I can't figure out is why anyone would spend the time writing informative in depth articles just to give away free to this website for publication? What's in it for them?"

FROM Dewey: "Well Huey, to me It looks like most of the articles on this website are written by very informed people, like boating instructors, boat designers, boat builders, riggers, electricians, fitters, marine repair technicians and marine surveyors. Writing such articles helps establish them as knowledgeable professionals. After all, this website was originally created by a school for marine technicians and marine surveyors. The website is growing in content every day. They even had to move to a bigger, more powerful server because the website's traffic has been growing exponentially."

FROM Louie: "I agree with everyone above. This site is quickly becoming the ultimate reference resource about every aspect of boats and ships for everyone from the beginning recreational boater to the seasoned professional mariner. I use the topic pages on the right sidebar to browse around the website. It's like a Junior Woodchucks' Guidebook for Boaters. Their Members' Library of over 300 popular and obscure books and over 200 magazine back issues that can be viewed online is fabulous. The Academy's magazine is especially informative. On top of that, there is the "Ask-An-Expert program for members where you can get an expert's answer to any of your boat questions. And a whole years membership is only $25. What a deal! I really love being part of this "Everything About Boats" community and help provide thousands of helpful articles free to the public. I think that I'll sit down right now and write an article about my experiences boating with my uncle."

FROM Scrooge: "You rave about this website like it was the best thing since sliced bread. Well, I think it stinks. Sure, it has a lot of good information for boaters, and they're adding more every day, but it will probably never be finished. Furthermore, I don't even own a boat. And I wouldn't have a boat even if someone gave me one. Boats are a waste of money and time and energy and money! They're just a hole in the water you pour money into. If you gave me a boat, I'd sell it quicker then you could say Baggywrinkle. Then I'd lock up the cash with all my other money so I could keep my eye on it and count it every day. Bah humbug."

FROM Daisy: "I'm just so glad that Donald got the boat so we and the boys could enjoy boating — together. And of course all of the girls, April, May, and June, love to be on the water too, especially when that is where the boys are. Oh poor Scrooge, boating is more fun then you could possibly imagine."

FROM Scrooge: "After seeing how much fun you all have on the water together, I regret that I didn't have that much fun when I was young. I've had a change of heart, and I'm giving each of you a Lifetime Academy Membership."

FROM Editor: "For those of you that have stayed with us this far, many thanks. You inspire us to keep working on this labor of love. We know that we have a lot more to do. Ultimately, we hope that we can help you enjoy the wonder filled world of boating as much as we do. We are all waiting to see what you have to say about this webpage article.
