Re: Amel's suggestion to run the Volvo D3-110 (A54) daily while on passage
No you’re not the only one. We do it too.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
But our engine did fail, but it wasn’t a flooded engine scenario, but rather bad cylinder liners. A new engine. H version has been running well from Panama to New Zealand.
I think it is good advice, on really any engine or configuration, if not sea water, sea mist and air get into the remaining open cylinder through the open valve.
But a question to those who know much more than I re this scenario: doesn’t the muffler reduce flow from the external boat to the engine? And also, the one way exhaust valve, at the exit of the exhaust from the hull, also reduce back flow?
Best of luck Scott
