Have just bought a boat with a Westerbeke generator
that was running fine.
Changed the oil
and filter today and the engine
now won't keep running. It starts OK with the Pre-Heat switch held down but as soon as the pre-heat switch is released the engine
stops running (even when keeping switch depressed for recommended few seconds before release).
The literature states the pre-heat switch, when depressed, over-rides the automatic cut out which monitors Oil
Temp. The Oil pressure Guage shows oil pressure to be within limits and even keeping the pre-heat switch depressed for up to 30 seconds doesn't help.
I would love to hear from anybody out there who has encountered this problem before.
