I just picked up a salvaged Phasor 10 hp 2 cylinder engine
to replace my Westerbeke
10 Two. Being based on a Kubota Z482, parts
are WAY cheaper for the Phasor, which is the reason I've decided to switch engines since I was going to have to rebuild
to the tune of $3k anyway.
So here's my situation. For the most part, the motor
is in good shape. However, since it was a salvage
, it wasn't laid up properly by having the raw water
rinsed out of the system. Is warm water
and scrubbing/scraping the best way to clean out the pipes and heat exchanger
or is there something better I can just dip it in that will dissolve out all the salt
deposits in the places I can't reach?
Also, does anyone have an tips or tricks for getting the heat exchanger
off of the head
? We didn't even bother to attempt it with the Westerbeke because it looked like an impossible mission, but I'd really like to get the Phasor heat exchanger off of this intake manifold, so I can clean the exchanger and send the head
to the machine shop.
After removing the four bolts holding it on, I tapped it with a hammer and did a little prying with screwdrivers but it hasn't budged. Anyone gotsome good tricks?
