Re: Detroit Allison 8.2 diesel

Never overheat it as they are known to be weak in the Head deck and gasket department, early series are particularly bad due to smaller head studs. Detroit built a great 2 stroke should have left the 4 strokes to Cat and Cummins.

We had a DD8.2 in our first boat. Worked fine, no problems. You could review the Johnson & Towers (J&T) website for marinizing info.

Keep the cooling and alarm system in good order also pay attention to Valve lash clearances and fuel timing.
