I just had the oil analyzed on a Kanzaki KM35p. The engine is mated to a Yanmar 4JH4E engine. Vessel is 2007. Hours are only 51. The attached analysis shows high iron and chrome. The vessel is so lightly used I am surprised by this. No evidence of striking a submerged object or of water/oil intermix.

I know we need to change and resample after enough hours are accumulated. However, this is a buy–sell with an out of state buyer. Therefore, accumulating sufficient hours to re-sample is a bit problematic.

I was just inquiring as to the service history of this transmission and wondered if there was any product specific problem?

Thank you for any assistance you may be able to provide.
