I have a 38B4 Westerbeke
with 1400 hours on it which I bought new and installed in 1999. I was crossing the Coral Sea
... well, skipping the story, I ran it without oil
until I could smell/hear something was wrong. I shut it down and filled it. Since then, when I start it the oil
pressure comes up to 60'ish just like always, but then over a nm or two, it drifts steadily downward to less than 25 (I have not let it go further, but it seems to be heading for 0).
If I start it again right away, it will read very low, 10 or so. If I let it sit
for a couple of hours, it will again start at 60'ish, then slowly drift down.
The oil level in the sump is constant through all of this. Can anybody offer
I greatly appreciate any help or even attempted help. thanks
