    "i have 2 tamd 41 with 2500 hours, engines run great only problem is that i have to refill both coolant tanks up after running for 5-6 hours. also engines run at 200 degrees on gauges but engines temp out with thermal gun at 180.
    no water in oil, no oil in coolant, no visable leaks, and very very light steam from exhaust while runnig. no bubbles in coolant while under cruise power 3200 rpm's. thanks for any input"

    thanks for the reply. i dont thing that the exchangers are leaking. i have the small plastic tank for coolant. i could be over filing this and refilling. the coolant tank is usually not completely empty but i always top off the coolant. i have considered to cut the upper hose and install a radiator cap and recovery tank. this would allow me to fill the upper hose and tstat housing.
    thanks steve

    "Check your head gasket. My symptoms were the same. Eckel's recomended removing the sea strainer to give her more water. I ran her easy to keep temp down. Ten hours later blew the head gasket, scarred a cylinder wall."
