Re: TD Power Marine, Chinese Marine Diesel Engine

Hello again Pagu. I've sorted out the oil breather problem with a right angled rubber pipe from a different application, fits perfectly. It beggars belief that the manufacturers use a piece of straight pipe for such a sharp bend.
Thanks for the advice.
Best Regards.
Bob.

Re: TD Power Marine, Chinese Marine Diesel Engine

So with the curse of Volvo penta hanging over me I find myself paying $2200 to have my water pumps rebuilt.

My Md 17C 1982 with 2100 hours on it no longer has spares available. The reality of repowering wearing hangs over me. Other than the 20000 to 30000 options are there any alternatives.

Currently waiting for hurricane winds to hit in Westport Washington.

Re: TD Power Marine, Chinese Marine Diesel Engine

I have hesitated to say anything on this thread. But feel I have to say that I have recently purchased 2 of these engines
THey arrived promptly via ship to me in south Africa.the engines came well packaged in a wooden crate complete with hoses for water pick up.spare hose clamps, tool kit.oil filters engine mounts,vibration damper/ coupling complete ignition system mounted on polish stainless steel mounting plate ie key switch rev counter oil , temperature gauges glow plug indicator etc all wiring loom etc
the engines where started on the floor before installation in my 38 ft cat both started very easily with good oil pressure
the gearboxes changed smoothly between gears and I am pleased with the engines and service from the factory
the fresh water cooling / manifolds have been changed on the newer models and now look more like the nani / yanmar set up.there was no oil breather issue as in previous posts
the transmission is made by Baysan model M30 which is based in Turkey emails to them with various questions have been answered promptly
at the price to me they seem very good value for money and could replace it twice for a known brand

Re: TD Power Marine, Chinese Marine Diesel Engine

What size engine did you repower yor cat with? And the big question is of course how much?

Send what serious claim....to who....
Dealing direct with a manufacturer in China is a "you takes your chances game". It may work out great and you save some money but at the same time you have to be totally ready to walk away and toss it in a dumpster if it goes bad for you.

There is no BBB in China...
There is no Customer protection when dealing with a Company in China...

It's like dealing with the Mob, it's all fine and dandy until is goes bad and then....
