    Keel cooling systems

    Hi Paul, thanks for the picture, i know now what it looks like underneath were all astons this design Thanks Steve.
  2. Hi All. My ex " Aston Seamaster" is keel cooled are there any problems i should be aware of when winterizing this type of system, all my previous boats have had bowmon heat exchangers. Thanks Steve.
  3. Hi Andy. As it's white smoke this is unburnt diesel,This could be a weak or dripping injector and would explain why when you alter the timing it goes away i would get the injector's serviced from a good diesel agent. the timing chain set up on these engines is pretty robust being a duplex chain running on a spring loaded rubber pad and doesnt give much trouble same as all B series engines. Steve.
  4. Hi Andy. Blue smoke is is oil burning diesel is black smoke. shot in the dark are all engine breather's clear including oil filler capthis should be the vented type when this engine was desined it had a breather on the cam cover side plate but normally removed on boats hence the vented filler cap. Steve
  5. Worn valve stem oil seals will give this problem and is quite a simple job to replace, i would also put the timing back to where it should be as this can cause untold damage ,also slighty to much oil in the sump dont trust dipstick unless you are sure it's correct. Steve.
