Re: isuzu 3LD1 marine diesel overheating

I don't know your engine, but probably your thermostat was fully closed and not allowing water to completely flood the engine on refilling. 3500 rpm warmed the block. Some thermostats come with a small hole so air can escape. Large diesels usually have a small bypass allowing some circulation before the temperature rises enough to open the thermostat. The solution is to drill the small hole.
