Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Long block failure on a Volvo D3-110 Amel 54-152
Thank you Danny . Good to know.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Teun was very helpful. He’s down on this model of D3 and got a new/different one. Smart man. The warranty for us only covers a new long block. Which seems realistic. I also have tones of spares for this engine. Etc. Getting CDM to understand an electrically isolated engine Pyle prove incredibly difficult.
Surprisingly Panama might as well be Somalia in terms of good reliable Volvo work. Rest of the country splendid.
Some have expressed suspicion that the long block was never actually changed. It’s mine too. Today I’m going to do some forensics.
We work so hard to make sure everything is perfect. It’s frustrating to have rely on a system that seems so error prone, and over which we have so little control.
One of the things I really need to learn is how to get the fault codes out of the helm display.
Had I that, at the beginning, we’d be so much further along in this process. We’re 2.5 months here in Panama with the engine.
But as my Guru says, “slow down enjoy the trip”. Bill R and Marcus Aurelius to the rescue.
I’d love a mechanical engine.
Thanks for all the comments from everyone
