|Smokey engine room with 8v71 by Claus|
|My marine diesel (Detroit 8v71 natural - keel cooled) is smoking up the engine room. There is a small vertical pipe on the top back of the engine which angles towards the back of one of the rectangular breathers also on the top of the engine.
I think any smoke in the past was getting sucked back into the breather, but now it seems as if either there is more smoke coming out of the small vertical tube, or the breather has lost suction and isn't sucking the smoke down as quickly as it used to.
Any thoughts? Can one (should one) clean the breathers regularly and if so how?
Is it a possible ring problem?
Thanks for any feedback and advice.
