Oil changes done every 100 hours without exception and this is shown by the maintenance record. There has been constant repair and replacement of all ancillary parts of the engine.
All new hoses to oil coolers.
New oil coolers (Nickel copper) 2015.
New hoses and connectors on fuel lines 2015.
Fuel filters changed constantly.
Large day tank was repaired (1995) and checked and found to have NO dirt inside.
Main heat exchanger cleaned out 2015. Spare main heat exchanger also maintained and provided.
Engine coolant last changed around 2014. Diesel antifreeze from Canadian Tire. Note that the drain plug is small and behind the starter motor.
New starter motor 2014, aluminum case. Original unit steel case and is in a locker. It works, but should have a new solenoid and brushes perhaps. Note that this starter has a unique Bendix gear. Don’t lose it.
The coolant water pump is a heavy-duty unit. It was replaced before 2000 as I could buy a new one for a good price. The old one is in a locker and is good or can be easily rebuilt with a new standard seal and bearing.
coolant water traverses from the pump to a cooler at the aft of the engine via a stainless-steel tube that I had built specifically after the original rusted. The replacement part from Nissan was only available in the original mild steel so I had this one built in stainless.
Electric diesel heater primers have been all changed and tested routinely as per maintenance document.
An integral part of the starting system involves two external solenoids. Both are replaced in 2015.
One solenoid fed by toggle switch on engine controls, switches power to the solenoids.
Second solenoid fed via 'start' position of key switches power to the solenoid on the starter motor which then energizes the starter motor and actuates the Bendix (all new on the new starter)
Salt water to the heat exchanger is provided by a special belt-run bronze pump on the front right side of the engine. Pay attention as the belt is a specific length and there is a spare belt close by. Note that this belt must be installed very loosely with very little tension. The two bearings on the pump shaft are very close together and can’t survive much sideways torque. The fact of the existence of three rebuilt spares of this pump will attest to that.
The four rubber engine supports have been replaced in recent years.
