Difficulties during manoeurvring with M/E one unit isolated

  • Ln one engine cylinder is isolated, then one problem that may occur is a “dead spot” during manoeuvring. 
  • This is due to the air start valve being isolated for that unit, and is more likely when a smaller number of cylinders are present. 
  • The Master must be informed that this could occur, and the remedy would be to kick the engine in the opposite direction, and then restart in the required direction
