  • RD6800 w/ Yamaha MZ360 eng-Governor gear

    Hello- I have seen prior posts that the governor gear in some of these engines are prone to failure of part 7CT-E1970-00 (thank you for the 10/4/2011 info Doctordeere). Does anyone know if the replacement parts ordered now are the same design as the failure prone part or have the replacement parts been modified to prevent this failure? If modified is there a different part number to use. Thanks from your newest member. Too bad for me I did not find this forum until after the enging failed!! Boo.

    I don't honestly know. The two dozen or so that I have repaired were repaired with a complete new engine provided, under warranty, by Yamaha. So I really haven't had the opportunity to see a new governor gear. Is your genny less than three years old? If so, do you still have a dated receipt? If yes and yes, you'll probably qualify for engine replacement.

      Thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately I do not have any original paperwork or receipt. I see that there is a different part number now superceding the old (7ct-e1970-10-00) and wonder if it is merely an sku change or if it denotes that there is a part design change. Do you have any contact info for Yamaha that you clould share and I can get a hold of them to find out?
