The Vancouver Chapter’s Yanmar 30 engine, used for the education courses, is in need of a new home/garage.

As many of you know, diesel mechanic David West offers incredibly informative and practical diesel engine courses for BCA members. The advanced course is hands on using the Chapter’s Yanmar 30, which is currently housed in our garage. We are downsizing in preparation for changing from Dreamers to Doers, hence the need for a new Vancouver-based home.

One of the perks of housing this engine is participating in the course as many times as you like, free of charge. As well, I am sure there is some learning by osmosis with it residing close to you year round! It has a small footprint, making it easy to store. Another perk is your neighbours will be intrigued by a group of people twiddling with an engine and then even more intrigued when it starts running in the afternoon! I can’t think of any negatives of housing this little engine.

Please contact me if you are interested. We’ll also need to recruit a vehicle able to transport it.
