Re: Daihatsu diesel generator troubleshooting

Exh temps?
Knocking or detonation?

Re: wartsila 4WL20

Both suction and discharge lines were below the sump level, and there was a flap check to stop oil drainage...

Re: abb tps 48 turbocharger

Have the manual, but need a video reference...

Don't want to be pessimistic, bud, but you should probably get an ABB technician (and learn from he/she), rather than a YouTube video...

What position/rank are you in?
Where are you geographically, any ABB vendors near you?

Re: wartsila 4WL20

I must be able to be done.

Picture?
Line diagram?
It's a pre-lube so it's +ve disp, so it's probably is above the oil level and draws the oil up...

I'm sure it's fine.
Fate fortunes the bold?

Re: Engine cannot start

I presume all the valves, air pressure, and proper levels of fluids are in good order.

Is there any alarms given when it fails to start.
Electrical problems from a sensor.
Mechanical over speed tripped.
Interlocks or limit switches?
Does the government arm move any when it's cranking?

Re: Tattoo for engineers

Agreed, it bugs me as a sailor when non-sailor hipsters get traditional sailor tattoos... The wimps wouldn't survive on a ship - lack of safe spaces and too many microaggressions going around lol
