Ford-Lehman - what is this part?
OK, firstly this turbocharged FL is in Texas, and the boat it is in is being worked on by a friend of mine for a friend of his to get it ready for sale. The engine is taking a long time to begin showing heat on the gauge compared to its twin and then just keeps right on going until it is overheating. My friend is an experienced mechanic on much bigger engines on charter boats, but he is NOT experienced on FLs. He is looking into all the normal causes of overheating, but we are both wondering what this piece of equipment with three hoses On the coolant, NOT saltwater side is. That's the heat exchanger it is attached to.
The upper hose runs off the the turbo,and the smallest hose probably is going to the shaft packing. The hose on the left comes from the coolant reservoir.
