MARINE ENGINESThe Thornycroft 90 and 108 engines are both 4 cylinder 4 stroke high speed diesel units both engines having electrically operated heaterplugs to aid cold startingThe cast iro n crankcase with ri bbed sidewalls houses a forged steel crankshaft carried in three or five bearings respectivelyA full press ure wet sump lubric ation system is emplo yed with a full flowdetachable element type oil filter and integrated lubricating oil coolerThe cooling system is indirect and usually employs an engine mounted heatexchang er with a belt dr iven ra w wa ter pu mp This sy stem is known as I FWCinternal fresh water cooledAn optional system is EFWC external fresh water cooled This system utilizes theengine fresh water pump and usually employs skin tanks attached to the hull to serve as

according type 108 Engine may be set to develop continuous outputs from 21 to 38 BHPaccording to special applications where full power will not be required for periods inexcess of 1 hour in any 12 hours consecutive running the engine can be supplied at anintermittent rating as shown aboveNOTE All horsepower ratings quoted are at the engine flywheel Due allowance mustbe made for transmission

of the engine is 15 engine types 902 108 and 1082 10 for engine type 90 This allows for a further rise of 4 when the craft is moving Check the angle of installation using the centreline of the mounting feet bolts as a datum Measure vertically on the centreline of the underside of the front mounting foot bolt to find the angle of installation Fig 1 Fig 1 Horizontal Line Type 90 Type 902 Type

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 LUBRICANT ENGINE AND GEARBOX THORNYCRO FT Page 2 ENGINE OILRUNNING IN OILSDo NOT use special runningin lubricating oils for new or rebuilt engines Use thelubricating oils specified for

running evenly on all four cylinders Fig 13THORNYCROFT INITIAL START NORMAL START RUNNING INPage 7 INITIAL START With all systems filled primed and checked the engine may be started 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 open 5 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 re lea se t he s wit ch k ey a nd w ait for th e starter motor to come to a c o m pl et e st o p T h en tu r n t h e k e y to H S po s i ti o n a ga i n D o n o t 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 OPERATING GUIDELINES THORNYCROFT I Page 8COMPLIANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING CAN RESULT IN LONGER LIFE BETTER PERFORMANCE ANDMORE ECONOMICAL OPERATION OF YOUR perform all of the specified maintenance including the First Start ofthe Day checksUse antifreeze during all seasons to protect the cooling system from corrosion as well asfreeze damageNever operate the engine without a thermostatUse quality fuel that is free of water and other contaminants Monitor the oilpressure and temperature indicators frequently AVOID FULL WHEN THE ENGINE IS COLDWhen starting a cold engine bring the engine up to operating speed slowly toallow the oil pressure to stabilise as the engine warms upIf temperatures are below 0C 32F operate the engine at moderate speeds for 5 minutes beforefull loads are appliedAVOID IDLING THE ENGINE FOR MORE THAN 10 MINUTESLong periods of idling may be harmful to your engine because combustion chamber temperatures candrop so low that the fuel may not burn completely Carbon can then form which may clog theinjector spray holes and also cause valves and piston rings to stickAVOID OVERHEATING THE ENGINECo ola nt t emp era tur e mu st not ex ceed 99 C 210 F wi th a 70 kP a 10 p

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 Name of Craft External Fresh Water Cooled System Capacity Date Change Due ELECTRICAL SYSTEM THORNYCROFT Page 24Electrical SystemAn insulated return system is employed on the type 90 and 108 enginesThe 12 volt alternator has a builtin voltage regulator which the charging rate to provide sufficient electric current to keep thebattery fully charged under normal operating conditionsThe alternator requires no lubrication maintenanceDo NOT disconnect the battery leads while the engine is runningEnsure that the correct battery terminal is connected to a good earth on thestarterA coating of a good grade of petroleum jelly will protect the terminals electrolyte level should be 6 to 9mm 025 to 038in above the top of the plates If theelectrolyte is below the correct level add the required amount of water for battery use should be kept in clean covered In cold weather add water only immediately before running the engine sothat the charging will mix the water and electrolyte and prevent freezingIf t he b att ery i s al lowed to sta nd at lo w tem per atu res in a p art ial lydischarged condition there is a possibility that it may freeze causing damage to the container Takecare therefore to keep the battery as fully charged as possibleThe specific gravity of the electrolyte when the battery is fully chargedshould be 1275 at a temperature of 25C 77F At differing temperatures the specific gravityof a fully charged battery will change The specific gravity of any given temperaturecan be calculated by subtracting 0004 from 1275 for every 6C change above 25C and adding 0004 to1275 for every 6C below 25CKeep the battery filler plugs and connections tight and the top of the battery clean Wipingthe battery with a rag moistened with ammonia will counteract the effect of anyof the solution which may be on the outside of the battery Wear when carrying out this operation If ammonia is accidentally splashed in theeyes wash out thoroughly at once with clean water and SEEK QUALIFIED MEDICAL Jumper CablesTo avoid the possibility of extensive damage to your charging system it isimportant to observe the following points when using battery jumper cables to start an enginehaving a discharged battery The positive terminals of the batteries must be one cable usually red and the negative terminals the other cable If this procedure is not followed extensive damage may bedone to the charging systemCAUTION 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 FAULT FINDINGPage 25 FAULT FINDING ENGINE WILL NOT START Starter does not ELECTRICAL FAULT crank engine Battery run down Lead disconnected Faulty starter switch Faulty
