Re: Bukh DV10 General questions & inquiry
Well i did a service on the engine. Changed Oil, cables, filters, changed and fixed the Thermostat. Seems to run just fine and after i lowered the RPM's a bit it does shift fine now from back to forth.
The oil in the gearbox is something i didn't change and from the documentation it looks like it uses the same oil as the engine but the level in the gearbox seems to be really high. Pretty much double of what the dipstick shows. I assume whoever pored it in, filled it up to the brim. I have limited access to the bolt to empty it so for few days will leave it as is.
One thing i did notice is a slight wobble of the shaft where the "Lubricating" coupling interfaces. The shaft i would say goes up and down about 1/4 of an inch. Is this something i should be worried about? I don't run the engine too high and mainly use it to get in and out of the marina.
