Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Diesel fuel problems and additives


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Thanks Greg (and Bill too) for the reply, next time it is due, I might ask the mechanic to show me, still unsure this is something I want to take the chance to mess up...
On the other hand (when something break), I always tell myself: this is made by men (unlike a human brain), so can't be difficult to fix.
I will check my Volvo owner manual to see how often it need to be checked. Onan was done, next is in a few years.
Thanks to both of you!
Alexandre

Kent, Alexandre et al,Valve Lash is just
another term for Valve Clearance. That is the distance from
the Valve tip to the rocker. Google it for some good
You-Tubeson how to adjust.. An easy and fun DIY project for
a day in the engine room.Cheers,Craig,

I
don’t know what the Valve Lash is either, but it was in my
Onan owner manual and I had it check (by Onan) last year (as
well as the bearings).

Bill, great question and I think the answer is

“never” since the engine was rebuilt in 2010.
 I’ll

 put it on the top of my list. The staining isn’t very

bad, but still annoying.  Thanks!

Dave,This is not a smart-ass

answer/remark.When is the last time that the valve lash was
adjusted

on your engine and/or generator?  If the valve lash is
not

adjusted correctly, you will get a lot of exhaust
staining

on the hull.Bill Rouse
