Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Repower questions
Hello Everyone. No one asked me but that never seems to stop me...toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
A. Dry major consideration when repowering is to be sure and get a diesel that has an isolated negative electrical system. Also called a full floating or a full earth return electrical system, it is essential to not to change to a power plant with a conventional grounding systems. Some companies have a “kit” they supply to convert the grounding to an isolated negative, while others supply new diesels with the isolated negative system built in.
If you put a conventional grounded diesel, you will corrupt the electrical system and suffer the attendant problems this will cause.
