Re: Windlass foot switch alternatives?

Rusted? hmmm. The new ones are sealed, or mostly sealed, units. With a solenoid, you could use whatever switch you prefer, but I do not see any reason the new switch would fail, and if it did, the...

If it is smoking, RPM is not your issue. What color is the smoke, how much smoke, does the boat leave an oily sheen on the water?

Re: DC Refrigeration Wiring

Wow, running to the battery, for the sake of voltage?
The fridge draws about 5 amps. If you have a proper 2gauge cable to your panel and a 4 gauge to your fridge, you should not see enough voltage...

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

This has been discussed at great length elsewhere, and the gearbox experts say it does not hurt it to spin. Its more like a manual transmission, but has way less gears. Autos use planetary gearset,...

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

install an EGT gauge.
Learn what normal is, and do not exceed 1200 ever. When you are doing your cool down, wait until the EGT temp is less then 250 before you shut it off. When you see what normal...

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

I am not a gearbox god, but I think the back end of the transmission turns when the shaft is spinning. It should not generate heat at all. If it needed to be started to be cooled, a 45 day passage...

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

It makes no difference to me what happens to your engine. Go ahead, spin it fast until a main bearing goes out. In the here and now I will offer my advice, that I get paid to use elsewhere, here for...

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

Not worth debating as most industrial engines run at a set speed all day. Also many boat engines are from cars, or trucks. I have run industrial engines far beyond what anyone would run a boat. trust...

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

Not exact examples, but lower is generally better. Load is more important then rpm when it comes to the speed being ok or not. The engine needs to be under enough load to keep the engine from losing...

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

It has everything to do with RPM. If you are running 3000RPM non-stop you may get 3000 hours. If you do not go over 2000rpm on the same engine you may see 5000 hours.
Some engines are designed for...

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2
