I'm bringing back a Cal
2-27 to sailing after it has sat for a few years. We had problems starting the engine
, a Volvo Penta
10A, but after a couple of days of work and replacing numerous small parts
finally got it going.
However we only ran it for a minute or so as we're not sure of the following, and I can't speak to the previous owner to ask... There is a two way cock on the top of the cooling
system that holds the thermostat and distributes the water
for either A. Set for dry exhaust
. Or B. Set for wet exhaust
. It is currently set for dry exhaust.
I am unable to talk to the previous owner but the motor
had been drained and left for winter (impeller out and drains opened,) so the cock could have moved/left for winter or.... the question is how can I tell if this motor
has a dry or wet exhaust?
And, if I run it with the setting wrong what can happen?
Thanks for any help,
