Thanks Guys...it was fun to do
Eyschulman; I Ruffeled some feathers sounds like..COOL!..
First post very good......I could not go into great detail with regard to all the nuances marine
or otherwise...that was not the point of the video in the first place...You-Tube only gives you 10 min. by the way..
Second post....not so good.
Its just your opinions as well and I disagree with almost every one of them..especially the bunk about starter motors...which most windlasses basically are for that matter.
Where did you get the idea anyone was proposing cranking longer then 15 seconds in the first place?...Or worrying about pre-oiling any motor sitting for short unused durations of weeks or months?...Watch the video again please......This engine had not been started in two years
....not even close to your remarks. FWIW most long blocks these days will require the installer to spin the oil pump up to operating pressure right before an attempt to start them...or you will void their warranty as well.
And regarding your remark .."Knowing mechanics and owners
Delco Remy specks out their starters for max 30 second runs with a 2 min. wait time...30 seconds is a LONG time to lay on a starter...
..but still twice your stated value indicating anything more risked thermal melt down.
Please post a video of you burning one up recently in normal usage ..Id like to see that one...
I have done it twice as a mater of fact...both times due to bad key switches keeping them engaged once engine starts and not knowing it till you start to smell them....yes indeed they get so hot they burn the stickers right off them.. not usually rebuild-able after that one... a real
with 700.00 starters.
As for my methods ask yourself why one who relies on his equipment to keep a paycheck comming in...why would I pass on anything that has cost me tens of thousand of dollars in repairs
over the past 23 years of self employment
by doing it?....Answer...I wouldn't...
