Daily maintenance on RN engines

Featured Posts

On Fulbourne's National you fill the oil reservoirs daily, give a turn on the oil filter screen and grease the water pump eccentrics if they need it. 

We have a dry sump engine with an enormous external oil tank, so the oil level only needs to be checked occasionally, but on a wet sump engine I'd do it daily.

Oil the linkages between governor and fuel pump.  Check water and oil.  Polish brightwork.

Make sure it still has oil and hasn't been disassembled by the Motor Fairies overnight.

That should cover it.

The first is the one which people often forget and its very important to ensure smooth running - VERY thin oil needed even WD40 worked for me
