Re: Engine alarms and tach inop
I just got a cal 39, and im having a similar problem...when i fire up the ole perkins, no alarm...not entirely sure how the doctor that owned it before ever could feel comfortable with no op/temp alarm!
Anyway, does anyone know where I can get a buzzer/bell? also a hi temp sensor and lo pressure sensor?
I've never understood why so many small diesels are sold without oil pressure or temperature gauges. By the time your overheat alarm goes off your engine is already overheated.
I would not leave the dock without a raw water alarm which will sound off the instant raw water ceases to flow..... long before the engine overheats.
The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
