Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Expected RPM at WOT
Nick. Thanks again. I agree!!toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
This is long block #3 for this 1800hr D3
Bill Rouse and I think the devil is in the other parts. The “short block” timing system or electronics.
Yesterday I compared WOT out of gear: 3200 rpm with no prop but in gear WOT: 3190rpm
I think this test exonerates all but the engine itself. The only outlier could be the boat itself. But we have a clean hull. Not a barnacle or a growth. So weight??? We’re pretty full. 500 l of fuel but a full load with spares and scuba tanks an air compressor etc. I think I may do a full water tank test run vs empty water tank test run. See what a 2000 lb difference makes.
The other issue is Volvo. They’ve gone to ground. I think they are at a loss as well. But zero comms yesterday. It’s the weekend now. I’ll be curious what happens Monday. If anything.
Excuse the errors.
