Also you need to know whats caused it not whats in it.

Possibly, but not definitely.

Andys’ concern was about sludge in the engine if you analyse the oil you will see what is causing the oil to ‘sludge’ and then you can look for the corresponding fault.
Oil analyse will show up a multitude of problems and is a quick way to zeroing in on a potential fault. Equally by a process of elimination you can concentrate on the faults not shown up by oil analyses.
These days’ vehicle fleet managers are using oil analyses as a management tool disposing of vehicles early (or late) based on the results.

At the minute we are re engineing some of the old Pac 22 that are worth keeping!!. The Mermaid is coming out and a Yanmar going in. Could be worth thinking about. We do a converstion kit so its pretty easy to put in. The kit comes with all the bits you need!!.

Turbo diesel, i note your above comment re the engine change on the pac 22. I was thinking of doing this , i have been told that i may have to change the gearing up on the leg. Can i get away without doing this on a yanmar?

sorry if im 'butting in' on the thread!

Jack
