While running engine
at dock engine alarm
came on. Shut it down and visual checks were ok but when I checked oil
level it was barely reading on stick. More detailed visuals turned up no hose or gasket leaks
. Engine is Perkins
T-6.3544. I only have run engine a total of 6 hours since changing oil
. After checking Nigel Calders book it points to the oil cooler discharging oil through exhaust
but gives no data on what to do with it when I pull it. Check for corroded stack and clean for sure. Anything else I should look for if indeed this is my problem? Should i pull the gearbox
oil cooler also and perform same remedies?
Any other suggestions before I pull the above items?
Thanking you in advance
