from the factory without engine or gearbox oil and with an unmarked engine dipstick After the boat is launched and is resting at its normal trim angle remove the oil filler cap from the rocker box Fig 2 and pour 39 litres for type 90 45 litres for type 902 or 48 litres for type 108 of specified lubricant through the filler hole Allow 5 minutes for the oil to drain into the sump withdraw the dipstick and mark it for maximum oil level Fig 3 Use a centre punch for marking as filing a notch can cause fatigue and eventual breakage while the engine is running Then mark dipstick using the same method 127mm below the maximum mark and this will be the minimum level CHECKING ENGINE MOUNTING MARKING DIPSTICK FILLING ENGINE WITH OIL LUBRICANT ENGINE AND GEARBOX Page 2 ENGINE OIL RUNNING IN OILS Do NOT use special runningin lubricating oils for new or rebuilt engines Use the lubricating oils specified for normal engine operation ENGINE OIL VISCOSITY The use of a multigraded lubricating oil has been found to improve oil consumption and improve engine cranking in cold temperatures while maintaining lubrication at high operating temperatures A multigrade oil conforming to MILL20104B is recommended with the viscosity grades shown in Fig 4 The use of single grade lubricating oil is not recommended except for synthetic oils used in arctic conditions Atmospheric Temperature Viscosity

Run it for 2 to 3 minutes then stop it Top up engine gearbox oil and water levels to the high mark The engine and gearbox are now ready for use Oil pressure should be observed within 15 seconds NORMAL STARTING PROCEDURE 1 Put gearbox selector lever in neutral 2 Ensure the stop control is fully disengaged 3 Set the engine speed control lever fully open 4 Turn the key to H position on starter switch and hold for 30 seconds this preheats the heater plugs This is not necessary for a warm engine Also control level only needs to be set half open5 Turn the key to H S position and the starter motor will crank up the engine CAUTION If the starter fails to crank up the engine within 10 seconds release the switch key and wait for the starter motor to come to a complete stop Then turn the key to H S position again Do not engage the starter motor for more than 30 seconds then wait 2 minutes between unsuccessful attempts 6 Move the throttle position to idle as soon as engine starts 7 Oil pressure should be observed within 15 seconds 8 To stop the engine pull the stop control RUNNING IN The care given to an engine in the first 20 hours of operation will result in longer life better performance and more economical operation During this period follow these 1 Warm up the engine before placing it under load 2 Do not operate the engine at idle or full load for more than 5 minutes 3 Avoid constant speed 4 Observe oil pressure and temperature gauges 5 Check the oil and coolant levels frequently GENERAL PRECAUTIONS 1 NEVER attempt to start the engine with the gearbox control lever in any position other than neutral 2 NEVER stop the engine without first engaging neutral 3 When changing the control lever from ahead to astern or vice versa pause in neutral INITIAL START NORMAL START RUNNING IN I Page 8 COMPLIANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING CAN RESULT IN LONGER LIFE BETTER PERFORMANCE AND MORE ECONOMICAL OPERATION OF YOUR ENGINE Routinely perform all of the specified maintenance including the First Start of the Day checks Use antifreeze during all seasons to protect the cooling system from corrosion as well as freeze damage Never operate the engine without a thermostat Use quality fuel that is free of water and other contaminants Monitor the oil pressure and temperature indicators frequently AVOID FULL THROTTLE OPERATION WHEN THE ENGINE IS COLD When starting a cold engine bring the engine up to operating speed slowly to allow the oil pressure to stabilise as the engine warms up If temperatures are below 0260C 32260Foperate the engine at moderate speeds for 5 minutes before full loads are applied AVOID IDLING THE ENGINE FOR MORE THAN 10 MINUTES Long periods of idling may be harmful to your engine because combustion chamber temperatures can drop so low that the fuel may not burn completely Carbon can then form which may clog the injector spray holes and also cause valves and piston rings to stick AVOID OVERHEATING THE ENGINE Coolant temperature must not exceed 99260C 210260F with a 70 kPa 10 psiexpansion tank cap AND A MINIMUM OF 50 mixture of ethyleneglycol and water IDLE THE ENGINE A FEW MINUTES BEFORE ROUTINE SHUTDOWN After full load operation idle the engine 3 to 5 minutes before shutting it off to allow the lubricating oil and coolant to carry heat away from the combustion chamber bearings shafts etc AVOID LOW COOLANT TEMPERATURE OPERATION Continual operation at low coolant temperature below 60260C 150260Fharmful to the engine Low coolant temperature can cause incomplete combustion allowing carbon and varnish to form that can damage piston rings and Also the unburnt fuel can enter the crankcase diluting thelubricating oil causing rapid wear to other moving parts OPERATING GUIDELINES THORNYCROFT Page 9 DO NOT OPERATE THE ENGINE WITH LOW OIL PRESSURE When the engine is at normal operating temperature the minimum oil pressures required are Idle 570 RPM 1 bar 15 psiFull Speed and Load 23 bar 35 psi DO NOT OPERATE THE ENGINE WITH FAILED PARTS Practically all failures give some warning before the parts fail Be on the alert for changes in performance sounds and visual tipoffs that indicate either service or repair is needed Some important clues are Engine misfiring or vibrating severely Sudden loss of power Unusual engine noises Fuel oil or coolant leaks Sudden change in the engine operating temperature Excessive smoke Loss of oil pressure SAFETY PRECAUTIONS Safety is built into every engine however like any other mechanical device it can present serious threat to life and limb if imprudently operated and maintained Remember that the best safeguards against accidents are to keep ever mindful of the potential dangers and to always use good common sense THORNYCROFT OPERATING GUIDELINES DAILY OR EVERY 10 HOURS Check

removing the tube stack or by blowing out with compressed air Remove oil cooler and drain tubes or blow out with compressed air Alternatively disconnect raw water pipework before gearbox oil cooler and pipe from oil cooler into a container of antifreeze mixture and flush through system returning antifreeze mixture from water injection bend back into container this ensuring that any water pockets contain antifreeze NOTE ANTIFREEZE MIXTURE MUST BE OF CORRECT STRENGTH FOR CONDITIONS TO BE ENCOUNTERED Fig 32 CAUTION WHEN USING A COMPRESSED AIR LINE GREAT CARE MUST BE OBSERVED AND GOGGLES MUST BE WORN ROUTINE MAINTENANCE OF RAW WATER SYSTEM IFWC THESE NOTES DO NOT APPLY TO EXTERNAL FRESH WATER COOLED ENGINES Examine and clean the sea inlet strainer at regular intervals Do Not remove the strainer when the engine is running as foreign matter can be drawn into the system and cause irreparable damage to the pump The sea cock must be FULLY OPEN when the engine is running If the sea cock is partially closed air can be drawn in with consequential failure of the raw water pump and engine overheating Check the raw water discharge pipe immediately after starting the engine to see if the raw water pump is functioning The engine MUST NOT run without a flow of raw water through the heat exchanger RAW WATER PUMP the raw water pump is self priming and fitted with a neoprene impellor It depends on the raw water for its lubrication DO NOT run dry More than 30 seconds running without water will burn the impellor and be contributory to an early failure When replacing the end cover gasket it is essential to use the correct part variation of the gasket thickness can cause loss ofself priming ability or seizure Page 23 This consists of a closed circuit fresh water system with a fresh water circulator combined header tank and exhaust manifold dry exhaust outlet and watercoolant tanks normally fitted to the skin of the craft It is therefore important when filling this system with antifreeze solution or corrosion inhibitor that the total capacity of the tanks associated pipework and the engine cooling system is taken into consideration Your boat builder will advise you on these figures We have included the box below for you to fill in these figures for your craft THORNYCROFT EXTERNAL FRESH WATER COOLED ENGINES ONLY EFWC Name of Craft External Fresh Water Cooled System Capacity Date Change Due ELECTRICAL SYSTEM Page 24 Electrical System An insulated return system is employed on the type 90 and 108 engines The 12 volt alternator has a builtin voltage regulator which automatically adjusts the charging rate to provide sufficient electric current to keep the battery fully charged under normal operating conditions The alternator requires no lubrication maintenance Do NOT disconnect the battery leads while the engine is running Ensure that the correct battery terminal is connected to a good earth on the starter A coating of a good grade of petroleum jelly will protect the terminals from corrosion The electrolyte level should be 6 to 9mm 025 to 038in above the top of the plates If the electrolyte is below the correct level add the required amount of distilled water Distilled water for battery use should be kept in clean covered noncorrodible vessels In cold weather add water only immediately before running the engine so that the charging will mix the water and electrolyte and prevent freezing If the battery is allowed to stand at low temperatures in a partially discharged condition there is a possibility that it may freeze causing damage to the container Take care therefore to keep the battery as fully charged as possible The specific gravity of the electrolyte when the battery is fully charged should be 1275 at a temperature of 25260C 77260F At differing temperatures the specific gravity of a fully charged battery will change The specific gravity of any given temperature can be calculated by subtracting 0004 from 1275 for every 6260C change above 25260C and adding 0004 to 1275 for every 6260C below 25260C Keep the battery filler plugs and connections tight and the top of the battery clean Wiping the battery with a rag moistened with ammonia will counteract the effect of any of the solution which may be on the outside of the battery Wear protective goggles when carrying out this operation If ammonia is accidentally splashed in the eyes wash out thoroughly at once with clean water and SEEK QUALIFIED MEDICAL ADVICE IMMEDIATELY Using Jumper Cables To avoid the possibility of extensive damage to your charging system it is important to observe the following points when using battery jumper cables to start an engine having a discharged battery The positive terminals of the batteries must be connected through one cable usually red and the negative terminals connected through the other cable If this procedure is not followed extensive damage may be done to the charging system CAUTION Since explosive hydrogen gas is always present sparks or flames should not be allowed near the battery When using jumper cables the cables should always be attached to the booster battery first THORNYCROFT Page 25 FAULT

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.
