this is also shown on the rocker cover label with the WOC numberINITIAL RECEIPT OF THE ENGINEA full inspection of the engine must be made immediately on delivery to confirm that there isno damage If there is any damage then write this clearly on the delivery note and informyour dealer or Beta Marine within 24 hoursThe engine must be stored in a dry frost free area and this is best done within its packingcase If storage is to be for more than six months then the engine must be inhibited contactyour dealer or Beta Marinere to inhibit the engine may result in the formation of rust inthe injection

check for leaks and repeat iAntifreeze solutions should be drained off every 2 years and replaced with a new solutionWhen draining the fresh water system ensure the engine has cooled sufficiently to from hot pressurised water Prior to draining a cold engine remove the filler cap from theheader tank and then open the water drain tap This allows the water to drain freely from the systemYachts and

unless the correctCanal Boats with Keel CoolerA 33 antifreeze to water mixture is recommended to give protection against very cold of 15C and to allow the water temperature switch to be activated This antifreeze willalso give the engine internal protection against corrosion For keel cooled engines the total systemcapacity must be taken into consideration ie engine volume plus skin tankkeel cooler of ethylene should not exceed 50All engine typesThe antifreeze in the fresh water system enables the boiling point of water to rise to 124C with a95kPa pressure cap fitted The water temperature alarm switch will however be activated at 95 to100C If no antifreeze or a very weak solution is used then the water temperature switch may not beactivated before coolant is lostSEA WATER PUMP AND COOLING

MAINTENANCEThe panel must be protected from rain and sea water see installation Sea water entering the keyswitch will eventually cause corrosion and could result in the starter motor being and burning out Spray keyswitch every month with WD 40 or batteries for acid level and top up if required For low maintenance and gel batteries spade terminal connections are the most common cause for electrical faults check on aregular bases see maintenance loom plug and socket connections should be packed with Vaseline to prevent shrouds should be checked to be overlapping and connection should be made secure with acable tie This will help prevent the ingress of water and keep the connection AND LAYING UPHeat Exchanger Cooled Engines Left Afloat and AshoreThe engine oil and oil filter should be changed at the end of the season rather than the spring SeeThe closed circuit system should contain a 5050 solution of antifreeze this also applies to warmand tropical climatesFor cold climates where the air or water temperatures can fall below 3260C the sea water circuit mustbe protected in addition to the fresh water system This is best achieved as followsiClose the inlet seacock to the engine engine the sea water inlet pipe and dip it into a small bucket containing 5050 the engine out of geard run for 5 to 10 seconds until the antifreeze is used up andcan be seen coming out of the exhaust outletivShut engine off and reconnect the inlet pipe to the seacockThe seawater or raw water circuit is now protected by antifreeze Remove sea water pumpEnsure instrument panel is well protected and give the key switch a spay of WD 40 or equivalentWith the engine stopped disconnect the battery always disconnect negative cable first cable lasthore for trickle charging and top up as necessary If AC power isavailable then this can be done on the boatFuel tanks should be kept full during the lay up period to eliminate water condensation in the tankWater entering the fuel injection system can cause

craft it is impossible to give definitive instructions Therefore Beta Marine can acceptno responsibility for any damage or injury incurred during the installation of a Beta Marine engine these guidelinesAll engines shall be placed within an enclosure separated from living quarters and installed so asread of fires as well as in the living quartersUnless the engine is protected by a cover or its own enclosure exposed moving or hot parts ofthe engine that could cause personal injury shall be effectively shieldedEngine parts and accessories that require frequent inspection and or servicing

forward and aft as possible and wellbraced to form an integral part of the hullThe engine must be installed as low as possible on the flexible mountpillar stud This will limit vibration and extend the life of the flexible mountIf necessary fit spacer blocks below the mountsA flexible coupling must be fitted for all engines which are Flexible couplings do not accommodate bad alignment Themating faces of the gearbox and tailshaft must be checked for alignmentthey must be parallel and concentric to within 0005 Fig 3bAlignment must be checked for parallel Ancentric Bmisalignment using a set of feeler gaugesTo obtain accurate alignment the flexible mountings must be adjusteduntil alignment is attained and the mountings must be locked in positionOnce mounts are tightened alignment must be rechecked Coupling cannow be fitted in accordance with instructions supplied with coupling1gine feet high up the flexible mount pillar stud This will cause excessive enginemovement and vibration Pack under the flexible mount with steel shims securely bolted into the pillar stud on the flexible mount is secured into position by the lower locknut do not forget toAlso ensure that the stud is not screwed too far through the mounting body so that itcan touch the mounting bearer This will cause vibration and knocking noises which are veryhard to findA correctly installed engine as described in this handbook will meet the exhaust of Directive 200344EC amending the Recreational Craft Directive 9425ECFor compliance with exhaust emissions requirements engines must have correctly systems To ensure exhaust emissions are kept within permissible limits it is mostimportant to reduce exhaust back pressure to a minimum whilst ensuring exhaust isadequately muffled Back pressure increases as exhaust length increases and from bends inthe exhaust system The exhaust back pressure measured with the exhaust system connectedand the engine running at full speed must not exceed 80mmHg 31 inches

Normal sea water levelAllow at least 10 of propeller diameter for tip clearance to hullIf a rope cutter is fitted allow approximately formovement of engine see manufacturers Fig 3c1One of the most common problems with engine installation is water entering the from the exhaust system by syphoning This can occur when the point of waterinjection Xngine is close to or below the water line Water entering the pistonscan cause bent con rods emulsified engine oil and a wrecked fuel pump avoided2The diagram shows a typical installation It is essential that the small black rubber hoseconnecting the heat exchanger with the injection bend is removed and replaced by ahose marked a This must be of sufficient length to supply either a T piece or an antisyphon valve sited at least 300mm 12 inchesbove the water line and on the centreline of the boat The pipe then returns to the injection bend and the sea water ispumped down the exhaust pipe3The exhaust back pressure should not exceed 31

driven sea water pump which sucks in seawater or raw water to cool theclosed circuit system via the heat exchanger Fig 3f1 It is very important that the seawater inlet shouldhave a strainer system either built into the sea cockor a high level system with visual inspection glassas shown mounted just above the water line2 The inlet sea cock and pipe work to the sea water3 Good access to the inlet sea cock is essential sothat plastic bags or seaweed trapped in the intakecan be poked out4 All pipe work should have approved marine gradestainless steel hose clips Any loose clamps or badconnections can cause flooding and sinking the5 If water is required for stern tube lubrication then this should be taken from a 221T222 piece in the pipegoing from the heat exchanger outlet to the water injection bend6 Scoop type water pickups should never be used as water will be forced through the pump and intothe exhaust system whilst the vessel is in motion This is very dangerous as the exhaust
