Hi just bought a new cat with twin yanmars, whilst delivering boat oil alarm
sounded, turned motor
off, checked oil
, ok. Looked at forums
which identified the sensor as a possibly faulty unit, tried to remove to swap but broke off unit, bogged up the end and sealed with emergency
tape. Started again, then turned off motor
and removed oil fill cover and stuck finger inside to check for oily film. All dry, so I assume the pump is not pumping oil. Did not use for remainder of delivery
, now awaiting the mechanic
next week maybe.
Does this sound like the oil pump is not working and if so how can I check it and or remove it? Where is it located?
I have no knowledge of diesels, but am quite compatent on outboards and motorcycles etc. If someone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.
I would atleast like to know if it is the pump before the mechanic
arrives, if atleast I look like I know abit about these motors I may avoid geting ripped off.
Also neither motor revs above 2500 rpm
. And at 2500 rpm
both smoke abit ( black).
No abnormal sounds, both seemed smooth etc.
