Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Turbo Rebuild

Hello Paul,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I had this issue twice on 2 different TMD22. In each case, the turbo was rebuilt as it was not seized badly. Make it a point to give your engine an Italian tune up often. I run the engine at least 30-40 minutes at near Max power every 10 hours or so. I make a note of it in the ship’s log too.
When leaving the boat for a long period, remove the exhaust tube entirely and spray wd 40 into the turbo. With a small wooden piece, spin it. LEAVE THE EXHAUST OFF. The cause of the seizure is salt water condensation in the turbo.
Your turbo is not Perkins. You have a Volvo and Volvo changed enough things to make you tear your hair out. Don’t ask….
