on until the boat gets under way and the engine speed increases to suf255ficient RPM for the pump to maintain pressure This normally occurs at approximately 1200 RPM but the actual speed may vary by as much as 400 RPM Extended cruising at low RPM such as when trolling is not harmful to the Vdrive even though the warning light may stay lit Normal operation is between 6 to 12 PSI The light will go on when the oil pressure drops below 2 PSI Loss of oil andor insufficient oil level are the major causes of pressure drop The oil level should immediately be restored and while running the boat the unit should be checked for leaks If the oil level is normal and the light stays lit when the boat reaches normal cruising speed the wir ing should be checked for loose andor corroded connections If the wiring is correct and the light remains lit the 49 pressure drop switch which is mounted on the side of the Vdrive see be checked for proper operation The switch can easily be removed and an accurate oil pressure gauge installed in its place If the pressure is normal the switch should be replaced If the pressure is below normal the oil lines should be checked for blockage The pump should be inspected and replaced if necessary The pump is standard on the RV48 and an optional feature on other models not available on the RV10The oil level should be checked several times during the season especially on Vdrives whitout pumps see OIL FILLA clatter or rattle the Vdrive at low RPM is due to the overriding of the propeller du ing the compression stroke of the eng ine Although annoying it is not harmful It may be reduced by adjusting the idle speed andor tuning up the engine for smoother operation MAINTENANCE 1 OIL CHANGE AND JOINT LUBE After the first 100 hours of operat and every season

correct cooler connections should be found from service literature prior to makeing the cooler installation 4 Use a cooler or sufficient size to insure proper cooling 5 Check engine rotation and transmission pump setting and the pro255peller rotation prior to assembling the transmission to engine 6 Check oil pressue and temperature when transmission function indicates that a problem exist 7 Use the recommended fluid for filling the transmission 8 Fill the transmission prior to starting the engine 9 Check oil level immediately after the engine has been shut off 10 Use a clean container for handling transmission fluid 11 Replace cooler and lines after a transmission failure prior to installing a new or rebuilt transmission 12 Check fluid level at operating temperature 31 ROUTINE CHECKS AND MAINTENANCE ANNUAL CHECKS 1 PROPELLER AND OUTPUT SHAFT ALIGNMENT This check should also be made any time the propeller strikes a heavy object and after any acci255dent where the boat is stopped suddenly Shaft alignment should also be checked after the boat has been lifted by a hoist or moved on a tr ailer 2 SHIFT LEVER POSITIONING shift lever exactly in F N poppet centered in the shift The selector controls must position the and R selection positions with the ball lever hole for each position 3 BOLT TORQUE Check all bolts for tightness 4 COOLER CONNECTIONS Check water lines oil lines and connections for leakage Make sure lines are securely fastened to prevent shifting 5 CHANGING OIL A seasonal oil change is recommended in pleasure boats Work boats require more frequent changes Change oil any time the oil becomes contaminated changes color or becomes rancid smelling Automatic transmission fluids ATFType A is recommended for use DAILY CHECKS 1 Check transmission oil level 2 Check for any signs of oil leakage in the bellhousing at gasket sealing surfaces or at the output shaft oil seal 3 A quick visual check of the general condition of the equipment may cause faulty equipment to be detected 4 Listen for any unusual noises and investigate to determine the cause of any such noises Note Low engine idle speed can produce drive damper chatter WINTER STORAGE L Drain water freezing in collecting GENERAL CHECKS from transmission oil cooler This cooler climates and prevent harmful will prevent deposi ts from 1 Check coupling alignment each time a transmission is replaced in the boat 30 7 COOLING PROBLEMS Water sages inside of the cooler 11 somet become c and this 11 reduce cooling i and cause over essur ing Back flushi of the cooler sometimes help to the foreign mater i from the cooler passages The cooler and hose should be thoroughly flushed or replaced in the event a failure has occurred Metallic particles from the failure tend to collect in the case of the cooler and gradually flow back into the lube system Replace oil cooler to prevent nat of the new transmission Water hoses may collapse and reduce or completely shut off all flow to the cooler Collapsed hoses are usually caused by aging of the hoses or improper hose installation Hose installation should be made with no sharp bends Hoses should be routed so there is no possibility for engine shifting to cause hoses to pull loose or become pinched A visual inspection of hoses while under way will sometimes allow detec255tion of faulty hoses Reduction or complete loss of water flow can be caused by a faulty water pump A rubber water pump impeller will sometimes fail and after such a failure the cooler passages may be restricted by the par255ticles of rubber from the failed impeller Water pump cavitation may be caused by improper or faulty plumbing or an air leak on the inlet side of the pump The water pump may not prime itself or may lose its prime when inlet plumbing is not properly installed It possible for cross leaks to occur inside the cooler permitting oil to flow into the water or water flow into the oil Checking transmiss fluid s at each days use will help spot such a hap255pen undetectable loss of fluid andor emulsified fluid 29 3 FILLING AND CHECKING lHE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM The oil level should be maintained at the mar k on the d Check oil level prior to starting engine Check dai before starting engine The hydraulic circuit includes the transmiss oil cooler cooler lines and any gauge lines connected to the circuit The complete hydr aulic circui t must be filled when filling the transmission and this requires purging the system of air before the oil level check can be made The air 11 be purged from the system if the oil level is maintained above the pump suction opening while the engine is running at approximately 1500 RPM The presence of air bubbles on the dipstick indicates that the system has not been pur of air New applications or a problem installation should be checked to insure that the oil does not drain back into the transmission from the cooler and cooler lines Check the oil level for this drain back check only immediately after the engine has been shut off and again after the engine has been stopped for more than one hour overnight is excellentA noticeable increase in the oil level after this waiting period indicates that the oil is draining from the cooler and cooler lines The external plumbing should be changed to prevent any drain back 4 STARTING ENGINE Move the shift lever to the center position where the springloaded ball enters the chamfered hole in the side of the shift lever and pro255perly locates lever in neutral position before starting engine 5 SHIFTING Shifts from any selector position to any other selector posi tion may be made at any time and any order if the engine is below 1000 RPM however it is recommended that shifts be made at the lowest feasible engine speed Move the shift lever to the extreme forward position where the spring loaded ball enters the chamfered hole in the side of the shift lever and proper lever in forward position Move tr ansmi ss ion shift lever to the extreme

hose removed there remains 2 connecting points A and B for 78 ID hose to and from the water heater These connections assure a flow of hot water through the heater at all times and yet preclude excessive restriction of engine cooling water flow caused by the heater all simply and automatically Installation The heater should be mounted conveniently close to the engine either in high or low position so that connecting hoses from heater to engine can run in a reasonably direct line without loops which might entrap air Connection Point A on the Flow Control housing should connect to the lower of the two connections on the water heater while the upper connection on the heater returns to B nearest to the heat exchanger Hoses should rise continuously from their low point at the heater to the engine so that trapped air will rise naturally from the heater to the engine If tr apped air should rise to the heater then an air bleed petcock must be installed at the higher fitting on the heater for bleeding air while filling the system Avoid loops in hose runs which will trap air and avoid this problem Trapped air will stop water circulation from the engine flow control to or from the heater If any portion of the engine cooling water circuit to or from the heater rises above the engines own pressure cap then the pressurized remote expansion tank must be installed in the circuit to become the highest point The tank kit Part Number is 24177 Install the remote expansion tank in a convenient location such as a sail locker for ease of checking fresh water coolant level Connect the remote tank with a single hose 58 ID 78 ID to a tee fitting directly at the con255nection on the hot water heater that is the return to the flow255control The cap on the engine mounted expansion tankmanifold should not be opened once the remote system is installed and filled The hose connection from the heater to the remote expansion tank should be routed and supported so as to rise continuously from the heater to the tank enabling any air in the system to rise up and out Figure 16 below illustrates domestic water heater connections when installed below or above the engine

It is recommended that a freshwater and antifreeze xture be used year round Use an antifreeze that is compatible with aluminum cooling system components Keep mind that water when it freezes expands to break the engine heat exchanger and the engine block So maintain an antifreeze mixture in the cooling system year round Do not be caught short Antifreeze of por quality or without rust inhibitor will cause corrOSlon of the cooling system Always use antifreeze prepared by a reliable maker Never use it mixed with antitreeze of a different brand Make sure that the cooling system of the engine is

will be forced to service the system at sea the possibility does exist Therefore it is recommended that banjo washers injector seat washers electric lift pump filter and gasket fuel filter and gasket be carried on board at all times Select the parts for your engine from the Parts List and purchase spares from your local Westerbeke Dealer or Distributor For example hardware kit 133093 will supply fuel system washers for All A series models If a leak should develop at a fuel banjo or sealing washer loca255tion and cannot be remedied by a simple tightening of the fitting replace the washers 4

gasket or 2670267 rings supplied with the replace255ment filter elements Arter the first 50 hour change the change period should be every 200 hours or once per season 5 Fuel Injection Pump The fuel injection pump is one of the most important components of the diesel engine and therefore calls for the utmost caution in handling Furthermore the fuel injection pump has been thoroughly bench tested and should not be tampered with Idle speed and timing adjustment are the only adjustments the ser vicing dealer can perform on the injection pump Other types of adjustments or repairs must be performed by a qualified inject service shop To obtain long and satisfactory service life from of your tion pump 1 Always use the correct grade fuel 2 Diesel 2 Filter the fuel to remove any water or

oil to be collected cleanly without spilling oil in the bilge Being a replaceable cartridge type the oil filter requires no cleaning inside In installing the oil filter element apply engine oil thinly onto the Oring and then tighten it by hand firmly Q OIL PRESSURE SWITO267 e OIL DRAIN SYSTEM Figure 9 r Oil Filter and oil Drain System Note A Generic filters are not recommended since the material standard or diameters of important items might be entirely different from genuine parts Note B Immediately after filter change and oil fill run engine to ensure that oil pressure is normal and that there are no oil leaks FUEL SYSTEM 1 Diesel Fuel 2 USE 2 DIESEL FUEL NEVER USE KEROSENE OR HOME HEATING OIL In cold weather particularly water vapor is pcoduced by when air is present in the fuel tank The tank therefore should be kept full as much as possible The fuel tank furthermore needs to be kept completely free of dirt and water Fuel Filter It is required that a primary fuel filter See Figure 10of the water entrapment type be installed between the fuel tank and the engine Such a filter is available under Part 32974 from your local Westerbeke representative or your boat builder This filter adapted for boat builder use comes complete with fittings for either hose or metal tubing Mount an accessible place inspect often and drain off any accumulated water and debris TUBE PIPING FUEL FILTER

fill if necessary bInsure that you have sufficient fueL Keep tank as full as possible cCheck cooling water level and fill if necessar NOTE Check for leaks of water or oil par t ar ly when signs of such leaks are found on the bottom of the engine or in the drip tray dStart the engine in accordance with the procedures given on the preceding pages eAllow the engine to warm up to 140267 150267 F before placing the engine under heavy load 2 Starting Under Cold Conditions The following three adver se condi tions occur as the atmospher ic temper ature drops dramatically and the eng ine must under such conditions be started by taking steps described below aLUBRICATING OIL TURNS VISCOUS Make certain that viscosity SAEproper for the prevailing atmostpheric temperature Study page 13bVOLTAGE

leaking sounds vibration and blowback sounds Investigate and correct dCheck for leaks of fuel lubricant and coolant eA knocking sound is normal while the engine is cold during quick acceleration and at idle This is produced by the com255bustion of diesel fuel the inders under compresssion as the cylinder temperature rises to normal operating range This combustion is better regulated and more efficient pro255ducing less noise 12 STOPPING PROCEDURES L Model W13A See F e 7aTo stop the engine move the throt control thr the idle position to stop As the throttle is moved past idle there will be increased resistance to movement because a spring loading must be over255come Hold the throttle firmly against the pressure until the engine comes to a complete stop THROTTLE COfJTROL THROTTLE LEVER bwith the engine stopped turn the key back to OFF position The battery will be discharged if the key is left at ON position An engine alarm buzzer is provided to warn the operator of this possibility Best precaution is always to remove the key HIGH SPEED LIMIT SET SCREW ADJUSTMENT Figure 7 Model Wl3A Idle position 2 Models W18 W2lA W27A and W33A See Figure 8aEach model has a manual shutofL A T handle or knob is pulled to shut off fuel Simply pull the shutoff and hold out until the engine stops completely Then PUSH THE STOP CONTROL BACK TO THE RUN POSITION bWith the engine stopped it is necessary keyswitch If you fail to do this the panel and the electric fuel pump continues to run results in a dead battery to turn off the remains energized This oversight cWhile an engine alarm

engaging Preheat button press Start button 3 The starter will crank the engine which should start in 10 seconds or less 4 As soon as the engine starts release buttons and throttle back to a moderate warm up speed 5 Should the engine NOT start even though cranking for 10 seconds release the buttons for 30 seconds and repeat the sequence by preheating the glow plugs sufficiently The starter motor should never be run more than 30 seconds at a time NOTE Excessive cranking without a start may place excess cooling water into the exhaust that cannot be expelled filling the exhaust and entering the engine cylinders producing a hydraulic lock Avoid this by shutting off the raw water thru hull and open immediately once engine starts 6 Proper glow plug function is indicated by voltmeter drop when Preheat button is depressed See Figure 6This drop will be slight If no voltage drop is noted it may indicate defecti ve glow plugs or a faulty preheat circuit check for loose connection Figure 6 voltmeter Gauge 7 As soon as the engine has started release both Start and Preheat buttons Check that with eng runni oil pressure and battery charge voltage are registering and that raw water is discharging with the exhaust Note An alarm buzzer is supplied with every unit and is the responsibility of the ins to electrically connect the alarm buzzer to the two tagged terminal connection on the engine electrical harness and install the buzzer in a dry location so that it will be audible to the operator should it sound during engine operation This buzzer will sound when the ignition key is turned on and should silence when the engine is started and 1 pressure rises above 15 Ibs 8 To warm up engine run a few minutes at idle to make checks in 7 above Then ate under reduced load 50 to 60

YOUR NEW ENGINE While eng has had a ninum of one hour of test operat to demonstrate accurate assembly it still requires break time and correct operation of all systems Service life of your engine is dependent on how your engine is operated and serviced during initial hours of operation Your new engine needs approximately fifty hours of initial operation breaking in each moving part thus helping to maximize performance and service life of engine Perform this carefully keeping the following points in mind 1 Star t eng ine run at a fast systems are functioning sea tery charge idle while checking that all water pump oil pressure bat2 Warm engine prefer ably by running propeller at fast idle while tied down until water temperature gauge moves into the 130 140 degree range 3 Then use engine at varying RPMs for first twenty five hours tr ansmiss ion lubr icant should be changed on models having HBW transmissions4 Avoid rapid acceleration especially with a cold engine 5 Use caution not to overload engine Grey or black smoke and inability of engine to reach rated RPM is a sign of overload 6 Next twentyfive hours may be run at varying RPMs with short runs at top RPM Avoid prolonged idling Explanation Breaking in a new engine is basically a seating of the to the cylinder walls This is not accomplished by running idle nor by early running under full load piston rings periods of Idle running smoky oper at wi th similar may glaze the Excessive results espec inder s causing oil consumption and and loads may score inder with the engine As indicated above operate the
