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

I usually love to learn things, but how often do we do it... if it is every 1000 hour (10 years for me), plus I have to work 45 hours a week already...
Just like when my propeller was rebuild, I let the guy do it, next time due in 2000 hours or 10 years... but it is me.

I looked it up Alex.  It's the
distance between the valves and the rocker when the engine
is cold. If too small the valves don't seat properly
when the engine warms up. Beyond my pay grade right now, but
looks like something one could do with a little education
and proper tools.KentSM 243Kristy

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).

Am I the only one here who's never

heard of a valve lash?  What the heck is it?  Where is
it?

How is it adjusted?ThanksKent

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

 Jean-Pierre,

Your post has prompted a question

from me. What have you found works well for cleaning the

exhaust from the hull?  Of course other members please
feel

free to chime in!

Hello Aty &

Mohammed,

Had a big

problem on previous boat… however, we had the tank
sucked

out, fuel polished, changed all filters then no more

issue.

We’ve not had

any problem since installing the following upgrade on

Eleuthera: a pair of Racor 75900 with a 4 way valve.

 (1-2-both-off)

We

also use a bacteria killing agent at all times.  Also,
for

those who use the low sulfur diesel… we do… (no
choice

in most places) we add 1 liter

of 2 stroke oil to

each 500 liters.  Makes up some lubricity for the drier
low

sulfur stuff though it contributes to extra hull
cleaning

chore aft of the exhausts..

Cheers,

Jean-Pierre

Hello

everyone;

In talking to several different cruisers in the

med, it appears that some have had some serious issues
with

bacterial or other types of growth in their diesel tanks

leading to the need for disposal and deep cleaning of
the

fuel tanks.

I'd like hear others experiences and

solutions to the problem in order to avoid the

problem.

Thanks in advance

Mohammad and

AtyAMEL 54.
