Category: Engines (updated as work progresses)

Maintenance/Repair Details: Commenced work on starboard engine overhaul. First job was to remove the engine panels and deck to expose the engine, once completed all the old sound proofing & fire protection panels were striped out and areas made ready for new panels. Oil filter housing was removed and old oil filter replaced with a new one (filter housing cleaned inside before hand). Noted stbd raw water impeller drive belt exceedingly loose, needs replacing as impeller housing at maximum adjustment.

5th November - Removed fridge and bulkhead panel to allow access to raw water pump & drive belt. Replaced very worn and loose drive belt and adjusted belt tension. Not the easiest job due to very limited access to the front of the engine.

8th November - Replaced stbd engine raw water impeller.

9th November - Installed new fire resistant soundproofing in stbd engine bay.
