    It's easy to overlook some of the steps to recommissioning the diesel system, so I put together an illustrated checklist that may be useful. PDFs files can't be attached to this post but this checklist, and 6 others covering maintenance and lay-up ( + 100s of engine and other manuals) are...

    Hey all. I have an old inboard Yanmar SB8 in my Sun 28 that I am having issues with. First off, I am not very familiar with diesel engines and rely a lot on friends, and here, for help. So, the engine has seized. Pulled the head off and looked at the piston. Springs on the head were a bit rusty...

    Hello All, I'm new to my Universal 5416 (early M-20) I'm doing my first oil change and have decided to go with Rotella 10W40 (Synthetic Blend Heavy Duty Engine Oil) for various reasons (better fuel economy, better wear on the motor, better cold starts in cooler weather year round here in SF...

    So I'm new to having a diesel and I wondered the other day why my fuel pump continues to "purr" along with the ignition on, but the engine not yet started. It's a 1987 Catalina 30 and everything is in good order. The valve on the fuel return to the tank is closed so I figured that the pump...

    The block is rusted and possibly cracked and motor oil is slowly oozing out on the side of the block but not squirting out. Raw cooling and straight shaft. Engine still starts but I cannot think of a repair option. My question is can I find a reliable used engine, or should I order a new one and...

    I can’t get the marine diesel engine (3 cylinder Westerbeke/Universal 25 HP) on my sailboat to keep running. When cold, it starts ok and runs for about 1 – 2 minutes, then sputters and shuts off. It runs a little longer at low RPM than high RPM. After this short run and sputtering off, the...

    This season, I winterized the engine on my S2 11.0 myself for the first time. The Universal manual says the engine holds 5.6 quarts of oil. In using the pump (foot siphon pump) extractor attached to the dipstick, slightly more than three quarts came out. I know the marina did not use the drain...
