Hello and Good Day Everyone-
I am looking possibly into purchasing a 1987 Overseas 46 with 555's. They boat is located in Kent island MD. By chance can anyone recommend a surveyor or mechanic who has experience with these power plants?

"These engines take a long time to warm up and i dont keep them at 600-650 rpm for idle. When oil pressure is up we increase them till they smooth out around 700rpm. We leave the slip and idle out around 700-800 till temp comes up to 140. We increase about 200 rpm for every 10-20 deg increase in water temp. slowly bringing up rpm till temps reach 160ish then to cruise of 1750-1800. We do not rush the engines. They have lots of metal (approx 2200lbs) to heat and we believe in slow and steady."

This is a good long term practice for ANY diesel.
