CR900 Man Engines 652hrs
Well it happened again. Out 25 miles running to fishing grounds and both engines shut down to idle speed. Two years after the port engine oil cooler gasket blew in the Bahamas the starboard engine oil cooler gasket blew in exactly the same spot. This has been a common problem with all these particular model Man engines. Too bad they didn't have a recall to fix this problem. They will only repair if the engines are still under warranty. I will say besides this issue these engines have been great.
It certainly makes a mess when you lose 5 gallons of oil under high pressure in the engine room. Cleanup is a pain in the ars.
One thing that surprised me from my Man mechanic he said when I reached the 1000hr service he did not recommend doing anything with the injectors. He said with the Man fuel filter system that injectors were hardly ever a problem.
