  1. Westerbeke 30B wont run, any ideas?

    Diesel
    I am helping my friend with his Gemini that has a Westerbeke 30B, 3 cylinder. The engine with about 4000 hours. It has been working fine, but last month he made it to the outer channel marker and the engine quit. Since then we have tried several things but no luck. The symptoms are the engine...
  2. Cascade 29 transmission/throttle

    Diesel
    [FONT="Arial"]Owner of Cascade 29. It carries a Volvo Penta MD2B. Old (original?) morris control. The transmission seems okay. Doesn't stick, stays in one place. But the the throttle creeps back and would power down until the engine shuts off unless you are able to push it forward where...
  3. Hi Seas C100 Diesel Heater

    Gear & Maintenance
    I have a Hi Seas c100 on my CT41 in WA. It looks great and works ok, nice dry heat but I suspect it needs a good cleaning and a new wick. A few older threads have mentioned they have a PDF of the manual and info on the valve assembly. But no actual posting of the manual and not much thread...
  4. Blown water cooler/thermostat cover?

    Diesel
    Hello. I would love a second opinion on my Penta MD6a. I had a propeller foul and a high rev of the throttle when this happened. A video showing the problem: https://goo.gl/photos/uzEKpCzpkZYRatMB7 Does not seem to be mixing with oil although the water ejected is mixed with a black soot like...
  5. Fuel Pump for Westerbeke W30/Four-91

    Diesel
    I need to replace a fuel pump for my Westerbeke 30 (Four-91). It's weeping diesel and it isn't lifting any diesel. It looks like the original fuel pump is no longer available through Westerbeke, so I'm waiting out the holiday weekend before I can contact a few straggler parts places that might...
  6. Blower for Diesel? Necessary?

    Diesel
    My blower has been broken for a while. I will probably replace it (pretty inexpensive). Is a blower with an in-board diesel necessary? There aren't explosive gasses, so is it just for cooling the engine compartment or reducing smells?

  9. Yanmar 2GM20F Maintenance

    Diesel
    Hello Forum, I am a newbie - just bought a '79 Catalina 27'. The original engine was a Petters (sp?) and it currently has a Yanmar 2GM20F inboard diesel. I've heard the engine is worth more than the boat. Ha! At any rate, I have scoured the web, and am not finding any kind of a simple...
  10. I need more horsepower

    Gear & Maintenance
    My 1980 Cal 31 is currently equipped with a Universal 16hp inboard diesel engine. Most of the time it is fine, but we have run into situations wherein the horsepower just isn't enough to power through wind and waves in tight quarters where we can't use the sails. Would like to know what my...
  11. Removing Diesel smell

    Gear & Maintenance
    Hello friends! The valve that controls flow from the diesel tank to the motor leaked during the delivery of my boat to the marina. I took out all of the diesel that was on the bilge. What do you recommend to remove the diesel smell / stench from the cabin? Thanks! A.D.

    Boat Review and Purchase Forum
    ... purchase a 32foot ocean capable sailboat without working electronics? The panels have been removed, in process of updating. There was a guy showing one off for an out of state friend, but when I asked if the motor could be started, the guy declined. Despite the owner saying the motor is...

    Hello everyone, I have the O'Day 28 with Universal Atomic Diesel No. 11, I can't seem to be able to find a manual for it anywhere, is this supposed to be the same thing as model No. 2-12 (two to twelve?). Any help appreciated!
  15. Burning Oil

    Diesel
    I was told there is an expected amount of oil to be burnt at a specific rate depending the engine. Does anyone know where to find this type of info I'm wondering how much oil my Westerbeke 30 should be burning up? Thanks
  16. To Rebuild or not to Rebuild that is the question

    Diesel
    Ok, so I was motoring in from Vallejo Yacht Club to Stockton ie SSC...a long ways for anyone who has done this knows. Somewhere along the way ( not exactly sure because I was Drinking Rum to keep from freezing to death) I hit a patch of water Hyacinth! Pretty much all over the Delta the last few...
  17. One tiny piece of metal is ruining my life.

    Diesel
    So, I have a 30 foot TMI (ticon) sailboat which I love, usually, but the 1982 universal diesel that powers it is another story entirely. When I bought the boat about six months ago I knew she hadn't been maintained worth a flip for a few years, and I paid accordingly, but while everything aboard...
  18. Yard left my diesel cap open ...

    Gear & Maintenance
    So I hauled out late in the season (about three weeks ago). A few days later I had the marina winterize the engine and water lines while I was traveling for work. Over the course of a few weeks it rained. Then it snowed. I went to the boat this past weekend ... no more snow on the deck, but I...
  19. MD7A or parts for sale

    Diesel
    I'm repowering and in the process of removing a running MD7A Volvo diesel. It's run well since 1977, has some cooling and other issues but as I said, it runs well. For the long term, I'd need to remove it from the boat for rehab and since I'm outsourcing all the work it just doesn't pay for me...
  20. Universal M-25 Exhaust port underwater?

    Diesel
    Hi All, We've recently had our inboard installed on our 1986 Catalina 27 Tall rig and are very excited to start using our new (to us) sailboat. I've noticed that the exhaust port, however, is just at the waterline when we are sitting, and when we are underway it drops to just underneath the...
