Long sad story behind the Volvo Penta engine
on my new boat WinDancer. She is still at the mechanic's after two months. They had it all put together nicely and began testing in the boat. Only to discover the previous owner (out of desperate stupidity I guess) put gasoline into the diesel fuel
. Not sure why.
At this point I am starting to think about a replacement engine
configuration is shaft drive - not saildrive
isn't really a concern for me, am more interested in a quality replacement motor
. The boat is a Beneteau
265 and is not configured for raw water heat exchanger
- but instead direct water cooling
thoughts anyone? I see my diesel mechanic
Monday relative to this recent twist where we will estimate the scope
of damage caused by the gasoline.
