you in preparing an inventory of spare parts See Fill in the reference the SPARE PARTS page in this manual For engine acces sories see WES1ERBEKES ACCESSORIES brochure 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 impor tant factors are proper ventilation and proper maintenance of the fuel lubricating and cooling systems Fuel and lubricating filter elements must be replaced at the time periods specified and frequent checking for contaminants water sediment etc in 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 GLOW PLUGENERGIZED BY THE PREHEAT BIlTTONe5115 171aAIJISEL FUEL SPRAY

includes the battery starter motor solenoid and starter button When the starter button on the instrument panel is depressed current flows and energizes the starters solenoid coil The M TERMINAL energized coil becomes an electromagnet which pulls the plunger into the coil and closes a set of contacts which allow high current IGNITION to reach the starter motor At the same time the plunger also TERMINAL serves to push that starter pinion to mesh with the teeth on the TO CONTROL flywheel PANEL To prevent damage to the starter motor when the engine starts the pnuon gear incorporates an overrunning oneway clutch which is splnled to the starter armature shaft The rotation of the running engine may speed the rotation of thepinion but not the starter motor itself Once the started button is released the current flow ceases stop ping the activation of the solenoid TIle plunger is pulled out of In To test the ignition circuit locate the ignitions terminal it is one of the small tem1inaJ studs and is wired to the ignition circuit Use a screwdriver dont touch the blade to jump from that contact with the batterytostart cables by a coil spring and the ignition teID1inaI to the positive battery connection teIDlinal on flow of electricity is interrupted to the starter This weakens the the solenoid magnetic fields and the starter ceases its rotation As the solenoid Iftbe starter cranks the fault lies with the ignition circuit plunger is released its movement also pulls the starter drive gear from its engagement with the engine flywheel If tbe solenoid clicks but nothing else happens the starter motor is probably faultyMOTOR t POSITIVE TYPICAL TERMINAL STARTER MOTOR IGNITION TERMINAL TO CONTROL PANEL Prior to testing make certain the slups batteries are at full charge and that the starting system wiring connections termiI1als are clean and tight Pay particular attention to the ground wiIe connections on the engine block If nothing at all happens the solenoid isnt getting current To check the wiring try cranking the starter for a few seconds Check the battery isolation switch and inspect the wiring never more than 10 seconds at a tinle then run your hand along connections It is also possible that the solenoid is defective the wires and tenninals looking for warm spots that indicate resistance Repair or replace any trouble spots Using a l11Ultinleter test the voltage between the positive terminal A WARNING There will be arching and sparks will stud on the start solenoid and the engine block ground fly when jumping terminals Be certain the engine If you

motor which can be POSITIVE serviced or rebuilt at any starter motor automotive service center TERMINAL Ifreplacing the starter motor make certain the new motor is certified for marine use Automotive starters do not meet USCG standards If in doubt contact your WESTERBEKE dealer M TERMINAL r TO REMOVE FOR SERVICEiOLjfJ 1 Disconnect the negative battery cable 2 If necessary remove any components to gain full access to the starter motorTest again by jumping the two large terminal studs Hold the 3 Label and disconnect the wiring from the starter Do not blade firnlly between the studs Do not allow the wires to touch tape over the blade to touch the solenoid or starter casing this 4 Remove the starter mounting boltswould cause a short 5 Remove the starter from the engine In some cases the starter will have to be turned to a different angle to clear obstructions A WARNING There will be arching as the full starting current should be flowing thru the blade of the screwdriverIf the starter spins the solenoid is faultyIf the starter fails to spin the motor is probably faultyIf no arching occurred There is po juice reaching the solenoidNOTE Starter motors are either inertia type or preengaged Inthe preengaged model the solenoid also maves an ann thatengages the starter motor to the flywheel ofthe engine Using ascrewdriver to bypass the solenoid on such a starter will run
