Hello all together<br><br>Our engine has 1300 run
hours without any problems. But nevertheless I have a
few questions: <br>1) Is that what must be done: let
the engine run every 15-20 hours for 10 to 20 minutes
with full power?<br>2) We have problems to switch off
the engine with the key. This problem apears only if
the engine runs bevore switching off a longer time in
the idle mode. Then we must switch off the engine
over the "red lever" at the engine. If the engine runs
under normal load and after we can switch off the
engine, with the key, without any problems.<br>3) we need
around 1/2 Lt. Oil per 10 hour run time. Is this the
normal consumption?<br><br>Thanks for all responses and
I hope, my English can be
understood...<br><br>Hanspeter

Re Hanspeter: I never heard about running an
engine at full power every 15-20 hours. Are you saying
to run at approximately 3000 rpms? <br><br>We've had
a similar problem with the solenoid but not just
when it runs at idle. Even under load the soleoid was
intermittent, sometimes it worked, sometimes we had to cut it
off manually, no fun at night. I thought for a while
the switch was the problem and so ran a 12volt line
to the solenoid. It did activate, but did not stop
the engine every time. My belief is that the solenoid
is a bad design or the engine heat partially breaks
down the coil. I suspect it is much to sensitive for
the job it has to do. I just replaced mine. I'll post
my experience in a month or so.<br><br>1/2Lt. per
10hrs seems excellent to me.

Hello Hanspeter<br><br>When I took delivery of my
SMn 283 the dealer mentioned to me that the engine
likes to be run a t full rpm every 10 to 15 hours. He
did not explain why. I think it is because the turbo
charger only works for the last 15% of the power range so
it is a good thing to run the turbo occassionally.

hello pagandaisy, Vito, Roy & Toni,
closereach<br><br>To run an engine at full speed is only nescesary for
a turbo charged engine. But I think, Vito and Roy
has given the correct answer. I heard something
similar, but I could not understand it. Thanks for the
answer.<br><br>@ pagandaisy: What exactly is the solenoid? Sorry,
my english ...<br><br>@ Vito: We have the SM #158,
build in the year 1996. Our SM is located in Marina
Bay, Gibraltar and we are living at the Costa del Sol.
If someone wants to know something about this area,
we will gladly answer. <br><br>@ Roy & Toni, we
heard the first time of you from Mr. Jacques Gauthier.
If you see him in Hyres, then say kind regards to
him from us.<br><br>Happy sailing to all of
you<br>Hanspeter & Nathalie

Hanspeter:<br>The solenoid is the device above the manual shut off for the engine that stops the engine when you turn the switch on the control panel counter clockwise. Arnold
