Re: Westerbeke 4107 heat exchanger question
There are likely to be some air bubbles in the passageways upon startup.. I usually run for the first few minutes with the pressure cap off.. the air can escape then, and you may be able to note the level drop and stabilize when the air leaves the system.. top up one last time and you should be good to go.
