I have just discovered water
in the oil
of my Nanni 5.280 62hp engine
. The engine
still runs fine in fact the only clue was a slight misfire on one cylinder on starting. I have changed the oil
, but it is a problem that obviously needs fixing immediately (I assume itís a blown head
gasket). My preference would be to fit a new engine as it has 3500 hours and I had a similar problem with my 12v generator
it was rebuilt but shortly after it developed an unrelated problem with the high pressure fuel pump
fixing both of these problems would have just about covered the cost of a new generator
. It is also difficult to get quality work done in a foreign country, particularly with an engine rebuild
where you cannot supervise all the work.
So I need a new engine, but Croatia
is not the ideal place to have this work done. So my questions
Any idea how long the existing engine will run?
Any recommendations for mechanics in Croatia
Would I perhaps instead be better to sail to the east cost of Italy
or down to Grease?
