Sorry Dabs, I thought you were referring to Brent Swain and his messianic posts about his steel boats - his tone of superiority and condescension towards everyone who doesn't slavishly agree with him closely mimics Tex on this thread.

Brent at least offers a very unique and real alternative to convention - Tex simply confuses the road going diesel operating environment with the marine environment.

I always enjoy Brent's posts, but at times I have a little trouble understanding them.

Well, in any event, it will be interesting to see if Bent takes the bait, he almost always does.

Oil for coolant?

I think that is how this whole thing got started, but it kind of drifted to "coasting" and "governors", and "weight lifters" , and so on? Jolly good fun, however.

Re: Conversion to oil as coolant?

Because marine diesels tend to operate in a heavily loaded "steady state" most of their running life. I would vary the speed on occasion. It cannot hurt to slightly speed up or slow down every half hour or so to keep the engine from bedding itself in at that steady RPM.

- too many raw water cooled and corrosion and plugging issues in my past --
One key factor with DEAC (Diesel Engine Antifreeze Coolant) is to AVOID CHLORINATED/CHLORAMINATED TAPWATER for mix & top off at all costs.

It rots header tanks, piping etc.

Always mix or top off glycols with distilled water if available.

We learned this from 13 years of operational experience on Caterpillar engines.
