Marine Engine / Boat

The challenges for any marine environment means regular checks on your port and starboard engines are essential.In order to keep the maintenance trouble free and keep the engine in optimum condition. Interestingly, an automotive or car engine may run almost twice as long (3,000 hours) as your marine gasoline engine. The reason is that marine engines normally work harder and under worse conditions than road vehicle engines.

A well-maintained gasoline engine run under the best conditions may well run for more than the 1,500 hours without major overhaul. However, many that operate under the most atrocious conditions of salt air, damp bilges, intermittent operation and pure neglect will certainly die early

Marine diesel maintenance procedures can be grouped into five
categories:

1. Lubrication – checking levels; changing oil, oil filters;
performing oil sampling or oil analysis to optimize oil
change intervals and to detect engine wear.

2. Fuel system – changing fuel filters, fuel injectors; checking
water separators; and doing fuel quality analysis to make sure
fuel contains proper lubricants and additives.

3. Cooling system – fluid level checks; coolant sampling for
coolant analysis; draining, flushing and refilling the system
when required.

4. Valves and heads – inspecting, adjusting and recording of
valve train wear for trending analysis; inspecting and
recording of cylinder head wear for trending analysis.

5. Mechanical systems – inspecting resilient engine mounts and
torsional couplings; general inspecting for leaks, wear or
deterioration.
