What engine parts should I bring?

Hi All,

I have a question regarding engine and spare parts to bring on an extremely remote and cold voyage where access to mechanics and spare parts will be next to impossible. Also what are peoples thoughts regarding engine driven bildge pumps in case of emergency?

What are important spare parts to bring water pump, impellers, belts, oil filters fuel pump ????

Please check out our rare and remote voyage we would like your feed back at


Northwest passage on a shoestring



Thanks !!!

What engine?
Do you have an engine manual? Most manufacturers include a list of suggested parts for local and long-distance cruising. For example for my Westerbeke they recommend:

Zincs
Heat exchanger gaskets
Fuel filters
Oil filter
Glowplugs
Thermostat
Injector
Belts
Gasket set
Impeller
Water pump
Oil switch/sender

BTW, you left a space between www and belzebub2. Was that intentional? Prevents the link to your site from working.

Don't forget hose, hose clamps, oil, coolant, transmission fluid/gear oil, etc., since you'll need these consumable items if you have to make any repairs or do maintenance.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Yanmar has a major parts kit, you might want to contact Volvo dealer if they offer similiar kit.
For a Yanmar 3gm kit about $600. US dollars
to get idea of content search... Yanmar major parts kit
Also the over years, I have chosen to install some of my
spare parts and keep my used worn but still servicable
old parts as spares as I know they will fit...the new ones
are not always right the first time around!
Engine driven bilge pump "in a emergency" in extremely cold and remote voyage. My vote Yes, need all help one can get in that case, make sure have good filter on
intake in bilge. Good luck, Hugo

Take the list of spare parts and replace anything needing replacement before you go, then keep old as a spare. Also, check compression on the engine. Make sure you have good valves and rings as heat of compression is what is going to get this engine going in cold weather, well besides glow plugs and an engine that is pre-warmed. Can you put a diesel fired pre-warmer on that engine like they do in Alaska to get it running when the temperature is -40 degrees? How about a small gasoline generator to charge the battery if it goes dead. With no starter, you will not get that diesel engine going.

Whatever you do for your kit, a good piece of advice someone told me was to make sure you use a vacuum seal (foodsaver or something like that) to seal up your parts. Nothing worse than pulling out your spare part to replace to find a rusted hulk of steel worth not even the scrap value.

Is it just me or are these guys questions a bit basic for anyone planing to go for the North West Passage. Maybe its just the translation.
Safe sailing anyway

Yanmar's kit includes stuff like paint and manuals which you may already have or not need (paint is hardly an emergency repair item). I found it cheaper to build my own kit but it was useful to read what they put in to theirs.

Oh and DONT forget to bring 2 (TWO!!!) rebuild kits for whatever head is on your boat. Maybe even 3 if you have frequent landlubber guests. Trust me. You want this.
