the bolts removed when the boat is hauled out of the water or moved from land to water and during storage in the cradle The flexibility of the boat often puts a severe strain on the propeller shaft or coupling or both while the boat is taken out or put in the water In some cases the shaft has actually been bent by these strains This does not apply to small boats that are hauled out of the water when not in use unless they have been dry for a considerable period of time Fresh Water Cooling Circuit A 5050 solution of antifreeze and distilled water is recommended for use in the coolant system at all times This solution may require a higher concentration of antifreeze depending on the areas winter climate Check the solution to make sure the antifreeze protection is adequate Should more antifreeze be needed drain an appropriate amount from the engine block and add ENGINE ADJUSTMENTS NOTE WESTERBEKE recommends that the following engine adjust255ments be peiformed by a competent engine mechanic The information below is provided to assist the mechanic LOW COMPRESSION When low compression is found determine the cause by applying a small amount of oil in the cylinder thru the glow plug hole Allow the oil to settle Install the pressure gauge and repeat the above test If the compression reading rises dramatically the fault is with the rings If the compression valve does not rise the problem is with the valves A slight rise in compression would indicate a problem with both rings and the valves NOTE In case of severe vibrations and detonation noise have the injectors checked and overhauled by an authorized fuel injection service center Poor fuel quality contaminates and loss of positive fuel pressure to the injection pump will result in injector faults When reinstalling the glow plugs use antiseize compound SETTING THE IDLE SPEED PROPULSION ENGINE1 Warm the engine to normal operating temperature 2 Stick a piece of suitable reflecting tape on the crankshaft pulley 3 Idle the engine 4 Use the light of a photoelectric strobe type tachometer on the reflecting tape and check the value shown by the tachometer NORMAL IDLE SPEED 580 630 rpm NOTE The idle speed may vary according to the transmission and propeller 5 To adjust the engine idle speed loosen the lock nut of the idle adjustment bolt and tum the bolt clockwise to increase idle speed and to reduce NOTE Should engine rpm be in question verify as shown at the instrument panel See TACHOMETER KEEP LINKAGE WELL LUBRICATED THROTTLE STOP SCREW INJECTION PUMP For disassembly inspection reassembly and

operation of your engine see Drive Belts under MAINTENANCE SCHEDULEDrive belts must be properly tensioned Loose drive belts will not provide proper alternator charging and will eventually damage the alternator Drive belts that are too tight will pull the alternator out of alignment andor cause the alternator to wear out prematurely Excessive drive belt tension can also cause rapid wear of the belt and reduce the service life of the coolant pumps bearing A slack belt or the presence of oil on the belt can cause belt slipping resulting in high operating temperatures and tachometer variations The drive belt is properly adjusted if the belt can be deflected no less than 38 inch lOmmand no more than 112 inch 12mmas the belt is depressed with the thumb at the mid255point between the two pulleys on the longest span of the belt A spare belt or belts should always be carried on board A WARNING Never attempt to check or adjust the drive belts tension while the engine is in operation Adjusting Belt Tension 1 Loosen the alternator adjusting strap bolt and the base mounting bolt 2 With the belt loose inspect for wear cracks and frayed edges 3 Pivot the alternator on the base mounting bolt to the left or right as required to loosen or tighten 4 Tighten the base mounting bolt and the adjusting strap bolt 5 Run the engine for about 5 minutes then shut down and recheck the belt tensions FUEL INJECTORS In case of severe vibrations and detonation noise have the injectors checked and overhauled by an authorized fuel injection service center Poor fuel quality contaminants and loss of positive fuel pressure to the injection pump can result in injector faults Since fuel injectors must be serviced in a clean room enviroment it is best to carry at least one extra injector as a spare should a problem occur Before removing the old injector clean the area around the base of the injector to help prevent any rust or debris from falling down into the injector hole If the injector will not lift out easily and is held in by carbon buildup or the like work the injector sidetoside with the aid of the socket wrench to free it and then lift it out The injector seats in the cylinder head on a copper sealing washer This washer should be removed with the injector and replaced with a new washer when the new injector is installed INJECTOR TO CYLINDER HEAD TIGHTENING TORQUE

COOLER CONNECTION SHIPMENT For safety reasons the transmission is not filled with transmission fluid during shipment and the selector lever is temporarily attached to the actuating shaft Before leaving the WESTERBEKE plant each transmission undergoes a test run with Dextron III ATF transmission fluid The residual fluid remaining in the transmission after draining acts as a preservative and provides protection against corrosion for at least one year if properly stored TRANSMISSION FLUID Check the transmission fluid level on the dipstick If the transmission has not been filled fill with Dextron III and continue to use this fluid During the first 25 hours of operation keep a lookout for any leakage at the bell housing output shaft and transmission cooler This fluid should be changed after the first 25 hours and approximately every 300 operating hours thereafter andor at winter layup A CAUTION Be certain the transmission is filled and the correct size cooler is properly installed before starting the engine SHIFT LEVER POSITION The gear shift control mechanism and linkage must position the actuating lever on the transmission exactly in Forward FNeutral Nand Reverse Rshifting positions A detent ball located behind the transmission lever must work freely to center the lever in each position The gear shift positions at the helm must be coordinated with those of the Velvet Drive actuating lever through shift mechanism adjustments An improperly adjusted shift mechanism can cause damage to the transmission The shifting mechanism and transmission actuating lever should be free of dirt and well lubricated to ensure proper operation Shifting Into Gear Place the gear shift in Neutral before starting the engine Shifting from one selector position to another selector posi255tion may be made at any time below 1000 rpm and in any order Shifts should be made at the lowest practical engine speed Start the engine and set the throttle at idle speed allow the transmission fluid to warm up for a few minutes Neutral Move the gear shift lever to the middle position You should feel the detent This centers the actuating lever on the With the control in this position hydraulic power is completely interrupted and the output shaft of the does not turn NOTE Some transmissions are equipped with a neutral safety switch Unless the transmission actuating lever is perfectly aligned in neutral the engine starter will not activate Forward Move the gear shift lever to the forward position You should feel the detent The actuating lever267 on the transmission is in the forward position The output shaft and the propeller shaft move the boat in a forward direction Reverse Move the gear shift lever to the reverse position You should feel the detent The actuating lever on the transmission is in the reverse position The output shaft and the propeller should move the boat in a reverse direction asternNOTE Moving the transmission actuating lever from Neutral Position to Forward is always toward the engine Reverse is always away from the engine If boat moves backwards with the gear shift control in the forward position shut off the engine This problem may be a result of incorrect movement of the actuating lever by the gear shift lever Engines Generators 36 hours tropical HURTH TRANSMISSIONS DESCRIPTION The infonnation below is specific to the HBW Transmissions the TRANSMISSION SECTION applies to all models CONNECTION OF GEAR BOX WITH PROPELLER HBW recommend a flexible connection between the gearbox and the propeller shaft if the engine is flexibly mounted in order to compensate for angular deflections The installation of a special propeller thrust bear255ing is not required since the propeller thrust will be taken by the transmission bearing provided the value specified under SPECIFICATIONS is not exceeded However the output shaft should be protected from additional loads Special care should be taken to prevent torsional vibration When using a universal joint shaft make certain to observe the manufacturers instructions Even with the engine solidly mounted the use of a flexible coupling or DRIVESAVER will reduce stress in the gear255bo bearings caused by hull distortions especially in wooden boats or where the distance between transmission output flange and stem gland is less than about 32 in 812 mmHURTH HBW HURTH HBW COOLERA CAUTION The position of the mechanism behind the actuating lever is to ensure equal shift lever travel from neutral position A and B If this mechanism is in any way tampered with the transmission warranty will be void DRIVESAVER is a product of Globe Marine Rockland MA NOTE When installing the transmission make certain that shifting is not impeded by restricted movability of the Bowden cable or rod linkage by unsuitably positioned guide sheaves too small a bending radius etc In order to mount a support for shift control cable connections use the two threaded holes located above the shift cover on top of the gear housing Refer to the WESTERBEKE parts list CONTROL CABLES The transmission is suitable for single lever remote control Upon loosening the retaining screw the actuating lever can be moved to any position required for the shift control elements cable or rod linkageMake certain that the actuating lever does not contact the actuating lever cover plate the minimum distance between lever and cover should be OSmm The control cable should be arranged at a right angle to the actuating lever when in the neutral position The neutral posi255tion of the shift operating lever on the control console should coincide with the neutral position of the actuating lever The shifting travel as measured at the pivot point of the actuating lever between the neutral position and end pOitions A and B should be at least 35mm for the outer pivot pomt and 30mm for the inner pivot point A greater amount of shift lever travel is in no way detrimental and is recommended However if the lever travel is shorter proper clutch engagement might be impeded which in tum would mean premature wear excessive heat generation and clutch plate failure This would be indicated by slow clutch engagement or no engagement at all NOTE Check for proper actuating lever travel at least each season LEVER TRAVEL FORWARO B CHECK FOR EQUAL TRAVEL FROM NEUTRAL THRU FORWARD AND REVERSE

hose attached to the front of the enginewhile the engine is warm Drain the used oil completely replace the hose in its bracket and replace the end cap securely NOTE Thread size for the lube oil drain hose capped end is 114 NPT Always observe the used oil as it is removed A yellowgray emulsion indicates the presence of water in the oil Although this condition is rare it does require prompt attention to prevent serious damage Call a quali255fied mechanic should water be present in the oil Raw water present in the oil can be the result of a fault in the exhaust system attached to the engine andor a siphoning of raw water through the raw water cooling circuit into the exhaust filling the engine This problem is often caused by the absence of an antisiphon valve its poor location or lack of maintenance 2 Replacing the Oil Filter When removing the used oil fil255ter you may find it helpful and cleaner to punch a hole in the upper and lower portion of the old filter to drain the oil from it into a container before removing it This helps to lessen spillage A small automotive filter wrench should be helpful in removing the old oil filter NOTE Do not punch this hole without first loosening the filter to make certain it can be removed Place some paper towels and a plastic bag around the fil255ter when unscrewing it to catch any oil left in the filter Oil or any other fluid on the engine reduces the engines cooling ability Keep your engine cleanInspect the old oil filter as it is removed to make sure that the rubber sealing gasket comes off with the old oil filter If this rub255ber sealing gasket remains sealed against the filter bracket gently remove it When installing the new oil filter element wipe the filter gaskets sealing surface on the bracket free of oil and apply a thin coat of clean engine oil to the rubber gasket on the new oil filter Screw the filter onto the threaded oil filter nipple on the oil filter bracket and then tighten the filter firmly by hand NOTE The engine oil is cooled by engine coolant flowing through passages in the oil filter bracket housing assembly OIL FILTER PN35828 PRESSURE SWITCH OIL FILTER ASSEMBLY NOTE Generic filters are not recommended as the mater255ial standords or diameters of important items on generic parts might be entirely different from genuine parts Immediately after an oil filter change and oil fill run the engine to make sure the oil pressure is normal and that there are no oil leaks around the new oil filter 3 Filling the Oil Sump Add new oil through the oil filler cap on the top of the engine or through the side oil fill After refilling run the engine for a few moments while checking the oil pressure Make sure there is no leakage around the new oil filter or from the oil drain system and stop the engine Then check the quantity of oil with the lube oil dipstick Fill to but not over the high mark on the dipstick should the engine require additional oil A WARNING Used engine oil contains harmful contaminants Avoid prolonged skin contact Clean slein and nails thoroughly using soap and water Launder or discard clothing or rags containing used oil Discard used oil properly Engines Generators 21 GLOW PLUGS DESCRIPTION The glow plugs are wired through the preheat solenoid When PREHEAT is pressed at the control panel this solenoid should click on and the glow plug should begin to get hot INSPECTION To inspect the plug remove the electrical terminal connec255tions then unscrew or unclamp each plug from the cylinder head Thoroughly clean each plugs tip and threads with a soft brush and cleaning solution to remove all the carbon and oil deposits While cleaning examine the tip for wear and burn erosion if it has eroded too much replace the plug TESTING An accurate way to test glow plugs is with an ohmmeter Touch one prod to the glow plugs wire connection and the other to the body of the glow plug as shown A good glow plug will have a 10to 15ohm resistance This method can be used with the plug in or out of the engine You can also use an ammeter to test the power drain 8 to 9 amps per plugA WARNING These glow plugs will become very hot to the touch Be careful not to burn your fingers when testing the plugs Reinstall the plugs in the engine and test them again The plugs should get very hot at the terminal endwithin 20 to 25 seconds If the plugs dont heat up

Do not use kerosene or home heating fuel FUEL FILTERWATER SEPARATOR A primary fuel filter of the water separating type must be installed between the fuel tank and the engine to remove water and other contaminants from the fuel before they can be carried to the fuel system on the engine Most installers include a fuel filterwater separator with the installation package as they are aware of the problems that contaminants in the fuel can cause A typical fuel filterwater separator is illustrated below This is the Rayeor Model 500 MA Keep in mind that if a water separator type filter is not installed between the fuel supply tank and enginemounted fuel system any water in the fuel will affect the fuel pump engine filter and injection equip255ment The owneroperator is responsible for making certain the fuel reaching the engines injection equipment is free of impurities This process is accomplished by installing and maintaining a proper fuel filterwater separator TYPICAL FUEL FILTER The fuel injection pump is a very important component of the diesel engine requiring the utmost care in handling The fuel injection pump has been thoroughly benchtested and the owneroperator is cautioned not to attempt to service it If it requires servicing remove it and take it to an authorized fuel injection pump service facility Do not attempt to disassem255ble and repair it The only adjustment the servicing mechanic should make to the fuel injection pump is the adjustment for engine idle speed see IDLE SPEED ADJUSTMENT under ENGINE LIFT PUMP Periodically check the fuel connections to and out of the pump and make sure that no leakage is present and that the fittings are tight and secure The DC ground connection at one of the pumps mounting bolts should be clean and well secured by the mounting bolt to ensure proper pump opera255tions When energized thru the preheat circuit the fuel lift pump will purge air from the fuel system and provide a continuous flow of fuel as the engine is running TO FUEL FILTER FUEL LIFT PUMP FUEL FILTERS INCOMING FUEL GROUNO The fuel injection pump and the fuel injectors are precisely manufactured and they must receive clean diesel fuel free from water and dirt To ensure this flow of clean fuel the fuel must pass through at least two fuel filters a fuel filterwater separator and the engines spinon fuel filter Visually inspect clean and change these filters according to the maintenance schedule in this manual A WARNING Shut off the fuel valve at the tank when servicing the fuel system Take care in catching any fuel that may spill DO NOT allow any smoking open flames or other sources of fire near the fuel sys255tem when servicing Ensure proper ventilation exists when servicing the fuel system LOOSEN FITTING WHEN

DESCRIPTION Westerbeke marine diesel engines are designed and equipped for fresh water cooling Heat produced in the engine by com255bustion and friction is transferred to fresh water coolant which circulates throughout the engine This circulating fresh water coolant cools the engine block its internal moving parts and the engine oil The heat is transferred externally from the fresh water coolant to raw water by means of a heat exchanger similar in function to an automotive radiator Raw water flows through the tubes of the heat exchanger while fresh water coolant flows around the tubes engine heat trans255ferred to the fresh water coolant is conducted through the tube walls to the raw water which is then pumped into the exhaust system where finally it is discharged overboard In other words the engine is cooled by fresh water coolant this coolant is cooled by raw water and the raw water carries the transferred heat overboard through the exhaust system The fresh water coolant and raw water circuits are independent of each other Using only fresh water coolant within the engine allows the cooling water passages to stay clean and free from harmful deposits FRESH WATER COOLING CIRCUIT NOTE Refer to the ENGINE COOLANT section for the rec255ommended antifreeze and water mixture to be used as the fresh water coolant Fresh water coolant is pumped through the engine by a circu255lating pump absorbing heat from the engine The coolant then passes through the thermostat into the manifold to the heat exchanger where it is cooled and returned to the engine block via the suction side of the circulating pump ZINC ANODE267 DRAIN DRAIN PETCOCK When the engine is started cold external coolant flow is pre255vented by the closed thermostat although some coolant flow is bypassed around the thermostat to prevent the exhaust manifold from overheatingAs the engine warms up the thermostat gradually opens allowing full flow of the engines coolant to flow unrestricted to the external portion of the cooling system Coolant Recovery Tank A coolant recovery tank allows for engine coolant expansion and contraction during engine operation without any signifi255cant loss of coolant and without introducing air into the cool255ing system This tank should be located at or above the engine manifold level and should be easily accessible CHANGING COOLANT The engines coolant must be changed according to the MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE If the coolant is allowed to become contaminated it can lead to overheating problems A CAUTION Proper cooling system maintenance is critical a substantial number of engine failures can be traced back to cooling system corrosion the engine coolant by loosening the drain plug on the engme block and opening the manifold pressure cap Flush the system with fresh water then start the refill process NOTE The drain petcock on the heat exchanger should also be used to help drain engine coolant COOLANT PUMP THERMOSTAT HOUSING INCOMING RAW WATER

The engines serial number can also be found stamped into the engine block just above the injection pump Take the time to enter this information on the illustration of the nameplate shown below as this will provide a quick reference when seeking technical information andor ordering repair parts 131 NOTE A carbon monoxide warning decal has been provided by WESTERBEKE Affix this decal in a visible location in the engine room UNDERSTANDING THE DIESEL ENGINE The diesel engine closely resembles the gasoline engine since the mechanism is essentially the same The cylinders are arranged above a closed crankcase The crankshaft is the same general type as a gasoline engine and the diesel engine has the same type of valves camshaft pistons connecting rods and lubricating system Therefore to a great extent a diesel engine requires the same preventive maintenance as a gasoline engine The most important factors are proper ventilation and proper mainte255nance of the fuel lubricating and cooling systems Fuel and lubricating filter elements must be replaced at the time peri255ods specified and frequent checking for contaminants water sediment etcin the fuel system is also essential Another important factor is the consistent use of the same brand of high detergent diesel lubrication oil designed specifically for diesel engines The diesel engine does differ from the gasoline engine however in its method of handling and firing of fuel The carburetor and ignition systems are replaced by a single component the fuel injection pump which performs the function of both ORDERING PARTS Whenever replacement parts are needed always provide the engine model number and serial number as they appear on the silver and black nameplate located on the manifold You must provide us with

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.
