Thanks, pbiJim. I will continue to monitor
. I am going to find out if they have rechecked the compression
in that cylinder post-fix so at least I can be fairly certain that the injector pump
is the cause of the making oil
if that is still happening. If there was no compression
due to valve open, I am not sure how fuel
could get by seals
on piston unless the cylinder just filled with fuel
and that opening at the valve was just so small that it would not let all the fuel out. Seems like that would damage the piston though so that is probably not it either...
Does anyone think there is a chance that the engine
is no longer making oil (I.e. any way this valve issue could cause diesel
in oil sump). It's winter so I was not planning on taking the boat out until spring but I don't want to spend another couple months in the spring doing engine
work again either. It seems like every time we have fixed something, something else has popped up. I continue to be worried until I hear a feasible scenario that explains all the symptoms I had.
If there is any positive here, at least this is making me understand more how a diesel
