Re: canal turbulence - a word of warning

There are really only three possibilities for this;
1) something blocked the intake through hull and then fell off when the engine was shut down
2) the body of the raw water pump is worn which...

Re: Stop cable

This looks like a Teleflex cable so there should be a small locknut behind the T handle. Use a 5/16" wrench and undo this locknut and then the handle should unscrew with ease.

Re: yanmar injection pump

This is a specialized job usually done at a fuel injection shop. They are the only ones in my experience who can calibrate and test an injection pump.

Re: Single lever controls

Re: Single lever controls

That particular single lever control has been available for the last 40 years. The reason that it has lasted in production for so long is that it just plain works.
It is easy to set up and you can...

Re: Yanmar super vibration

Have you actually checked your propeller? What you are describing is a classic symptom with a worn folding or feathering propeller or a bent blade on a fixed propeller.

Re: Deisel Engine Day Tank.

Re: Universal m4-30 engine will not accelerate in reverse, OK in forward Hurth selec

It is possible that some wear in the propeller is stopping it from opening fully in one direction. Has the prop been greased recently?

Re: Universal m4-30 engine will not accelerate in reverse, OK in forward Hurth selec

If the engine revs up normally in neutral, the issue is in the drive line. The first thing to check is that the prop is not full of growth and that there is no line or fish net around it and the...

Re: Cummins 4B 3.3

Hello JRD22,
The Beta 60 is not an electronically governed engine. The only electronic part of this engine is the stop solenoid.

Re: Universal 5432 Oil Pressure Sending unit

Be very careful! Having an oil switch and oil sender on one fitting with a T connector can lead to disaster. The fittings are too heavy and the vibration often causes the nipple between the block and...

Re: universal M4-30 engine fresh water pump

Re: Volvo Penta MD7A started but shut off

Re: Sender units for Farymann

This engine only has a temp switch for a temperature alarm. Farymann never supplied a gauge.

There is no provision for an oil gauge as this engine is splash lubricated.

That is the Volvo MS2 transmission. The seal is easy to replace but you may find the surface that it runs on has some rust which is what damaged the seal in the first place.

Re: BorgWarner series 500 Gearbox

Borg Warner stopped supporting this transmission years ago. They didn't make many.

You may be better off looking at a replacement transmission from another manufacturer.

Re: Farymann Diesel A30M Fuel Lines

This is an easy job. The fuel supply lines have banjo fittings at the end and over the last 33 years the rubber hose has hardened up, hence your leaks. These are not high pressure lines.
