- Oil to be used must not attack sealing Rings. Generally oil used for main propulsion unit is SAE 30. Remove screw plug and fill up the stern tube oil. Oil pressure must amount to only 0.2 – 0.3 Kg/cm² more than SW pressure.
- Preheated to 60 – 70°C when viscose oil is used or low temperature prevails.
- Remain in this condition for several hours (says overnight) and turn engine by Turning Gear to change the shaft position 3 – 4 times.
- Check oil leakage from Drain Plug and if it is all right, fit back Drain Plug and fill oil from venting and Filling Plug and close.
- Forward Seal is fitted.
The electrohydraulic control mechanisms of the ME engine replace the following components of the conventional MC engine: Chain drive for camshaft Camshaft with fuel cams, exhaust cams and indicator cams Fuel pump actuating gear, including roller guides and reversing mechanism Conventional fuel pressure booster and VIT system Exhaust valve actuating gear and roller guides Engine driven starting air distributor Electronic governor with actuator Regulating shaft Engine side control console Mechanical cylinder lubricators. The Engine Control System of the ME engine comprises: Control units Hydraulic power supply unit Hydraulic cylinder units, including: Electronically controlled fuel injection, and Electronically controlled exhaust valve activation Electronically controlled starting air valves Electronically controlled auxiliary blowers Integrated electronic governor functions Tacho system Electronically controlled Alpha lubricators
