AD41s - twin installation
in Fairline Targa, mid 1990s. One died at 800 hours. Required replacement
KAD42s: In Princess 366 Twin installation
. +BANG! One of them lasted 900 hours then POP!
KAD 32s: 1500 hours in Windy 31 Still going strong I hear
KAD300s: Twin installation in Windy 34 - one of them gave up the ghost at 700 hours and refused to give more than 3550 rpm
(supposed to max at 3900). Thousands of wasted diagnostics with Volvo
in Poole. No solution - sold boat at big loss.
75 hp in 2003 Jeanneau
49 - 4000 hours and still good I hear. Had to rebuild gearbox
otherwise no issues.
55 hp in Jeanneau
42 - 1200 hours - still purring like a kitten.
I've always serviced engines religiously and changed oil
at 100 h or service
interval, whichever sooner.
Conclusion: If it's green, I don't buy it anymore!!!
