Everything you Need to Know About Marine Diesel Engine Lubrication System

There is a lot of choice for consumers shopping for engine lubricant. If you’re in the market and looking, you can come across many choices including engine oil, gear case drive lubricants, liquid spray lubricants, and drive lubricant, engine tuners, fogging oil and much more. If you need a proper lubrication system for your marine diesel engine, read on below for a brief overview of what your engine will need and which products can provide the best results for you.

First it’s important to understand that lubricant oil fulfills two different purposes: to cool and lubricate. In the process, the lubricant would cool the engine down. Afterwards, you would filter the remaining liquid before supplying more oil to the engine through an oil inlet pipe. But there are different oils and lubricants that you can use and which can fulfill a variety of different purposes.

The first obvious choice that you can use is engine oil. This would be more suitable for four stroke engines that need lubricants in the crankshaft or piston of the engine. If your engine is a two stroke outboard, a synthetic oil brand might be preferable as they can help your engine last longer but they tend to also be more expensive. Depending on how long you want your engine to last you and how much you want to invest, you should choose a lubricant oil that will suit all of your marne engine needs.

While working on your engine, you should also inspect if the inner cylinder lining needs lubrication applied. If it does, you would see a small oil film in between the liner and piston rings. By applying lubricant oil to this section, you can neutralize any further production of acid so as to restrict your inner lining from corroding.
