Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Generator exhaust

An important thing to remember is that the original set up works... when used and maintained as it should be.
One of the key recommendations has always been to run the generator and the main drive engine every 12 to 24 hours while sailing to blow out any water than might have found its way in.
I am not comfortable making a detailed recommendation about any changes that might be needed for the new engine...

We are installing a sincro sk160 mated to a kubota d11.
It is a little more powerful than the original onan.
The old engine was damaged by corrosion in two cylinders.
The information from the installation people told me that they would not be happy with the way the syphon loop vented to the exhaust system and being in the horizontal plane. Could cause issues. The reduction in size through the water lock would have caused back pressure?
I think that other owners may have been in the same position.
I have a few spare parts from the Onan.
