Dear Maramu owners,
We have the original Perkins 4154 engine on our Maramu which has developed a leak , as far as I can tell from a failed gasket - in the forward part of the engine.
My question is how to access this area, I can just about squeeze in over the starboard side but that is it. Is there a better way ??
We're even thinking of cutting an access opening from the forward part of the internal corridor ( linking saloon to aft cabin) to the engine room.
We are prepapared to lift the engine out to replace gasket and carry out any other maintenance tasks , do we have to remove the hard dodger to lift it out ??
The access hatch would remain if we need to access the forward part of the engine at a later date.
Your thoughts, experience and ideas much appreciated.
