Happy Holidays all!!! Wanted to see if anyone has any suggestions on our problem.
We have an older Westerbeke
, probably original with our boat, 1988. It has gotten increasingly difficult to start. It will start and run fine, putting out the correct voltage, but it takes 30 seconds or more on the preheat before engaging. we have replaced the Preheat Solenoid, thinking that may be the problem, but it is still really slow to engage. We are thinking now it may be the Glow Plugs, and as they are quite expensive and there are 4 of them in our unit, are there other things we should ck, and does anyone know how a glow plug
can be tested before we go to the expense of replacing all 4?
Thanks for any assistance we can get!
