Who else has seen this?

Raw water pump impellers – an item that should be on a regular service check list, but not always done. Some boat / engine combinations do not even allow access to these critical items to keep those expensive engines cooled. It’s a problem seen far to often, where the impellers break apart, then scatter little pieces of itself through the raw water cooling circuit, which then has to be pulled apart, inspected, and cleaned of debris, to ensure no plugged passages.

It’s a time consuming, high maintenance item, that can lead to some very expensive repairs! Ask us how Baudouin has addressed this issue, saving you money and down time! info@3cYachts.com

Twin Cummins 6BTA5.9’s lifted out for rebuilding after the interior, galley, and seating was removed to gain access.

Staging – removal of the engine from the ‘hole’, where the ‘hole’ was shorter and narrower than the engine! Some items removed from the engine, and with some very careful lifting with our specialized Gantry for jobs like this, one engine was staged to the center to the door, and readied for the crane to make that final lift out through the door, as seen behind the engine.

Crane arrived, setup, and then attached to the staged engine, and ‘threaded the needle‘ through the doorway without any damage, or issue.

After the 1st engine was out, then the 2nd engine was lifted out of it’s hole with the Gantry, and moved over to the center of the doorway again – staging it for the crane and lift out.

A lot of thought, and planning went into this to ensure a smooth process, without any issues or collateral damage. A thank you goes out to Vic City Crane, as a good crane operator is imperative to this project. A thank you to Anderson Precision Engines, as they will be ensuring a professional rebuild at their machine shop.

The Cummins 6BTA5.9 engines do not have replaceable liners like their bigger cousins, so a proper engine rebuild requires services from a professional engine machine shop where the engines are dissembled, measured, and then machined to specifications ensuring a reliable and bullet-proof rebuild.

Once the engines are rebuilt, they will be run up on a dyno for the break-in, as well as to ensure the engines are running at 100% before going back into the ‘hole’. The other benefit to running the engines on the dyno – the team will tweak the engines for maximum fuel efficiency!

Next will be the removal of the engines – stay tuned!!
