Re: Engine Rotation diesel

Oh my gosh I feel so stupid. The thing was in gear. That’s why it wouldn’t rotate. When I put the transmission in neutral the engine turns freely. Thank you for all your suggestions! It happens to all of us, and I'm a mechanic! One facility I work for I couldn't figure out why a generator wouldn't ...

Re: Crankshaft Main Bolt

Right hand thread. Get a good impact wrench. They're torqued down to something well over 100ft lbs. Can't remember the number but it's pretty high for that small of a bolt. You'll need something that can hit it pretty hard. Small propane torch probably wouldn't hurt it. You also don't want one spot ...

Re: Transmission oil leakage.

You've got an MSG. Not to be a party pooper, but from the looks of it I wouldn't bother. The most likely time to damage a seal or cause a leak is during installation.

I'll take a look at my Isuzu manual this evening and post the info

Re: Hello everyone from what is left after Covid and Sally!

1. A little gas left over won't hurt it so long as you've filled it with diesel.

2.-4. you'll maybe gain about 3 hp doing all those things. The biggest contributor would be electric fans. And the fans would be about 2.5 of that probably. Really I'd just leave it as stock as possible. Less problems.

Re: Had the pleasure of working on the humble sibling of our beloved c223

Before this forum came along and was new to the internet, I found a site for marine isuzu diesels enthusiasts. Posters on that community site boasted of their Isuzu diesels. Is the head about the same as the c224? Others have been looking frantically for thermostat housings to replace cracked ones....

Had the pleasure of working on the humble sibling of our beloved c223

I won't put the name of this engine so our site doesn't turn up in google for it. But it's just 2 cc's smaller in displacement. A couple buddies of mine bought a yacht and it had a good little engine. Engine was manufactured in the early 70s. Definitely not a huge fan of doing yoga in the bilge of a...

Re: Cold Start Stumble

Check your spray patterns if you've got a tester. Or take them to an injection shop. Shouldn't cost much. Spray pattern makes or breaks cold starting.

Re: Injection Pump Issue

My guess is somehow it happened while changing filters. The old filter looked like it hadn't been changed in a very long time. But obviously I did something wrong that caused some debris to pass into the injection pump since it ran fine before I touched it. I learned a lot about this motor in a sho...

Re: Motor Oil Warning

I'd be hesitant to flush... You never know what sludge in certain places his holding back all the leaks... That's one of those notions that just about everybody seems to hold to as "truth", with little or no scientific evidence. I'm one of them! :) I just wonder if there really is any sup...

Re: Motor Oil Warning

If the oil had not been changed for a long time prior to this I would view the 5W20 as a pre-flush, warm the engine up so its at a low idle, add some kerosene or motor flush to it letting it idle for a few minutes before draining and refilling with at least a 10W30 or even perhaps a 10W40 along wit...

Re: Oil leak

If my memory serves me correctly the PN Rock Auto has for the front sleeve is wrong. The sleeve they list is far too long.
