Publ No 3061 Dec 1975WORKSHOP diesel engine ENGINE workshop manual contains repair instructions for the MD5A marine diesel engine The overhauling describe the most suitable working method to be used with the special tools listed underthe heading Special toolsBoth the engine designation and its serial number must be clearly stated in all correspondence concerning theengine and when ordering spare parts We reserve the right to carry out design modifications and for thisreason the contents of this manual cannot he regarded as binding AB VOLVO PENTA Technical Information Department NEW UNITS OF MEASUREMENT Technicians have long since tried to establish an standardized system of measurements In 1960 a decision was made to use a system called SI Systme International dUnites To a large extent this system is based on earlier systems but the units have been made uniform so that no conversions are necessary The SIsystem is now being applied within industry in Europe This manual contains the new SI units The units used previously however are also stated but in brackets The new units are Output is slated in kW kilowatts earlier unit hp horsepower Torque is stated in NM Newtonmetres earlier unit kpm kilopondmetres Engine speed is stated in rs revolutions per second earlier unit rpm revolutions per minute 3 Displacement and volumes are stated in dm cubic decimetres earlier unit l litres

ballbearing 10 after which seal 11 can be pulled off Note If onlythe seal 11 is to be changed pin 12 can be knocked out afterwhich the seal can be removed If the camshaft is damaged this means that the camshaft gear must be replaced in this case as well This also means that the axial guide face must be filed down by 3 mm 01181 in58 Replace damaged parts and reassemble the pin sealball bearing and spacer ring on the shaft Fit the spacerwasher into the cover and tighten it in position with the setscrew Note Ensure that the spacer washers groove facesthe locking screws centre Fit the shaft in the cover Place thekey in position and then the ball bearing Fit the it with a washer and nut Knock out seal 1 from theflywheel cover Press in a new seal afterwards 60 If the transmission cover is damaged and must be replaced this means that even the camshaft and the camshaft gear must be replaced The replacement is necessary because the axial guide in the new transmission cover is shortened by 3 mm 01181 in which in turn means that the camshaft will have an axial play of 3 mm 01181 in The camshaft camshaft gear and transmission cover are interchangable as of engine no 1076 inclusive When changing camshaft gears of a later type the camshaft shall be pressed out of the camshaft gear Take care of the key Check the camshaft for wear See the technical data Place the key in the camshaft and press on the camshaft gear The distance from the camshaft end to the camshaft gears hub must be 136 mm 5354 in See figCamshaft59 In such cases on engines with engine nos 1001075where a camshaft gear change is necessary the camshaftmust be changed as well A new camshaft gear cannot befitted to an early type of camshaft Furthermore this means 17ASSEMBLING 63 Place the main bearing halves with the

electrical circuit between the alternator and the battery when the engine is running If a main switch is fitted it must therefore not be turned off until the engine is stopped No lead must be disconnected when the engine is running since this can irreparably damage the charging regulator 2 The battery battery cable and cable terminals are to be checked regularly The battery poles are to be properly clean and the cable terminals are to be tight and well greased so that a break in the circuit cannot occur All other cables are to be properly connected no loose connections must occur The batterys positive and negative connections must on no condition be exchanged when the battery is connected 3 When starting with an auxiliary battery check first that itBLEEDING THE FUEL SYSTEM has the same rated voltage as the standard battery94 Fuel system bleeding is always carried out in the Connect the auxiliary battery with positive to positive andfollowing cases When the microfilter is

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
