Re: things you dont want to see in your gearbox

Main Gearbox, ie drive to prop.

No it was beyond repair, that was the pinon drive, the bull wheel also had a small crack, time to get a new bull wheel 5 weeks. No choice, two new gears.

Cold weather is normally good for air volume, I assume there is no Ice build up, blocking the vents.

Re: My Turn- Fault Finding

Are you refering to afterburning?

I have seen the nozzle dirty enough to speed up the turbo, and cause barking, but this happen slowly, not a sudden machine gun effect

And I dont know this engine, (and not to fond of Wartsilas either)

Re: My Turn- Fault Finding

1 Something blocked the aircooler, either completely sooted up, or parts of the air filter

I order for a turbo to bark the pressure in the scavange pressure has to be higher than the output of the compressor. When this happens (in my experence) there is a good long bark, as all the pressure in the scavange reciver dumps. By the sound of yours it is very fast, as you say like a machine gun...
