As we have discussed “ad nausea” – I tend to agree; my impeller is completely removed.
I have asked specific questions to AMEL on this and expect an answer next week and might share the feedback
Have a great weekend in HOLLAND and have some “patat met” or “sateh” on me
HI to Mirjam;
only reason I put up with your <Annoying mode ON>
and <Annoying mode OFF> is her; she is way, way too good for you

We’ve talked about this before. I just don’t get it. What is the added value of this setup? Why is the existing impeller pump not sufficient for feeding cooling water? 95% of the Amels (I’m guessing) has this set up and seem to be fine with it. Unless you remove
the impeller pump completely, it will still be a source of (shaft) leakage at some point. The only thing I can imagine is if you use the genset frequently at continuous high loads you may want to improve the flow. In all honesty I would then enlarge the heat
exchanger as the mickey-mouse version that is standard part of the genset seems to leave quite some room for improvement.
Adding another pump seems just to complicate things.
Just my two cents,
