Re: Dirty/brown/orange colour cooling water

Maybe take a sample of the water you are using and mix it with coolant and let it sit to see if it gets discoloured. Look into the chemical you are using is it the right type for the material used in the engine cooling system.

Re: ALFA LAVAL HIGH SPEED LUBE OIL SEPARATOR

Check the centrifugal clutch if fitted, may need new pads or be worn out so it doesn’t clutch in at the right speed. Also check the temp of your oil.

Re: Transport Canada issues

I wrote my exams at Halifax office and everyone there was great! Very helpful. I find lots of it is how you approach them. They don’t make the rules they just try to follow them.

If you don't they will ask for interest on the money you owe in taxes. If you work in an other country and pay tax there you can in most cases subtr...

Re: Common Rail Engine 48/60 cr

Re: Atlantic Towing looking for full crew

I don't have a problem with newfs getting a job. I don't have a problem with that they hire newfs first but when my company sends me there and the crew treats you like shit and does everything to make you leave because they think a newf should have the job it sucks. I don't want to go there but I ha...

Re: Plate cooler

I would contact the manufacture of the cooler, you can add to many plates and mess with the flow rates and actually lose cooling capacety.
