Regular Maintenance Tips

- Battery voltage is crucial due to the fact that it runs the engine management and if low can damage that
- Battery cables must be well earthed with star washer
- Fuel Filters need to have water traps so that the fuel can be monitored and water in the fuel filter can be drained
- Engine rooms should have gas detectors or carbon monoxide detectors
- Bilge blowers should be checked and run before and while the engine runs
- Fuel tank hoses should be checked for cracks or worn hoses
- Check for any fuel leaks or oil leaks from the hoses
- Check the fuel line for any cracks or worn spots
- Check the fuel primer bulb is not cracked and is pliable
- Check the fuel-line fittings are sitting properly and do not leak
