quality can cause interruptions in operation                       Use only oil with quality CD DS according to theLUBRICATING OIL        APISystem Volvo Penta oil for diesel engines can                       be used with advantage since it meets these quality                       demands See under Technical Data concerning                       viscosity if any other oil is used                       A new marine engine must be runin with due careRUNNINGIN             during the first 20 hours of operation If full output is                       taken out during this time it should only be done for                       short periods                       Oil change Change the engine oil and oil filter after                       the engine has been run for 20 hours See further

made to the Volvo Penta propeller diagram Check                       the engine speed with normal load in the boat I      n                       order to obtain maximum engine performance an                       engine speed as high as possible should be chosen                       but not however greater than 434 revsec 2600                       rpm                       NOTE When the boat has been in the water for                       some time the speed and max revmm can drop                       due to marine growth on the hull Prevent marine                       growth by painting the bottom of the boat with anti                       fouling paint If the boat is equipped with S    drive                       model MD7A110S  or any other Sdrive model  it                       is important not to use an antifouling paint which                       contains copper See further Service in connection                       with launching

equipment works4                                         RUNNING  THE ENGINE            Switch on the main switch Start the engine room fan if fitted            and let it run several minutes before starting the engine            Check that cocks for fuel and water intake are open If water in the            boat use bilge pump and drain the boat            Disengage the engine speed control from the gearchanging as            follows            Move the control lever to neutral push in the red disengaging            button and move the lever slightly forwards Release the button            The lever can now only operate the engine speed            Check to make sure that the stop control is pushed in            Turn the key switch one position to the right The warning lamps            for battery charging and oil pressure should now go o        n and the            buzzer should sound Push in and turn the key further to the right            to start the engine Release the key when the engine starts Hand            starter If the engine is started with the starting crank the            decompression handle see pages 3435 on the rocker arm cover            should first be folded up Return the decompression handle for            running when the engine has been cranked up in speed            Cold weather starting            CAV fuel injection pump Starting is facilitated if the coldstart            control is pulled out The coldstart control must be pushed in after            the engine has started            BOSCH fuel injection pump The engine has a builtin automatic            coldstart device            Check immediately after starting that the warning lamps for the            oil pressure and battery charging are out and that the siren is quiet            If any of the lamps are on and the siren is sounding the            engine must be stopped immediately and an investigation            made            Run the engine warm at rapid idle Check to make sure that the            cooling water flows out with the exhaust gas es            NOTE The key switch should always be switched on as long            as the engine is running to ensure battery charging            Reduce to idle and check that the engine is running smoothly            Engage the control lever for gearchanging as follows            Push in the red dis engaging button and pull the lever back to            neutral Release the button The control lever can now be used            both for gearchanging and engine speed                                                                               5RUNNING              The single lever control contains engine speed as well as gear             shifting functions             NOTE If the boat is equipped with a folding type of propeller             the engine speed must be reduced to idling prior to shifting to             FORWARD Shifting at higher speed might easily damage             the propeller             F  Forward    N  Neutral             R  Reverse    T  Throttle             In order to achieve good running economy the engine should             not be run at maximum engine speed for long periods of time             Check regularly during running that the warning lamp for             battery charging is out Should the cooling water temperature             be too high or the oil pressure too low the buzzer will warn             you at the same time the relevant warning lamp goes on             If this happens the engine must be stopped immediately             and the reason  PROCEDURE             Before shutdown the engine should be allowed to idle for a             few minutes with the control lever in neutral             Stop the engine by pulling out the stop control when the             engine is idling Then turn back the key switch to the initial             position6                        RUNNING  propeller Sdrive  When switching from engineoperated running to sailing the propeller rotation is stopped byengaging reverse gear When sailing maintain the controllever in the reverse positionFixed propeller When sailing the control lever should be inthe neutral or reverse position During long sailing

ASSEMBLYThe engine block and cylinder head are made of cast iron The engine has  SYSTEMThe lubricating system has a fullflow oil filter which cleans the oil before it reaches thelubrication points The oil pump has a relief valve which prevents the oil pressure frombecoming  SYSTEMThe engine has a starter motor and an alternator with builtin rectifier Voltage regulationis performed by a transistorized regulator mounted on the alternator The  it possible to charge two batteries independent of each other if a  is fitted to the alternatorA main fuse which can easily be reconnected is fixed to the engine It protects theelectrical system from damage in the event of overloading The wiring diagrams for theengine and instrument panel are shown on page 328                                                  TECHNICAL  SYSTEMThe fuel system has a feed pump with a fine filter fuel filter with a fine filter  pump and injectors The feed pump is of the diaphragm type and is equippedwith a hand priming leverThere is a builtin cold start device in the fuel injection pump On the CAV fuel injectionpump the coldstart device is operated manually and on the BOSCH fuel injection pumpthe coldstart device is operated  SYSTEMThe engine is cooled by sea water The cooling system has a sea water pump and awater distributor housing with a thermostatThe seawater pump has an impeller made of neoprene rubber which is driven via arubber flange from the camshaftThe thermostat in the water distribution housing regulates the water flow so that water isalways flowing in the exhaust manifold and out in the exhaust elbow regardless ofwhether the engine is cold or hot                                                                                         9 TECHNICAL  GEAR MD7AMSBThe reduction

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at 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.
