I used to own a big old fishing trawler - Lady JaneAfter years of toil and fun, I've sold the trawler and bought a beautiful ketch - Arctic Rose This blog is about the progress I made with Lady Jane and the start of a completely different lifestyle with Arctic Rose, and other fun stuff.
Dear old stinkies on a first season start? I have no doubt that this month when I start my engine it will be like that or worse :o(( Volvo engines make great anchors!
Worn oil seals/guides around the valve stems allows oil into the combustion chamber while engine is at rest resulting in oil burnoff at startup...cough cough Tony in St.Anthony.

Gardiner diesels - and probably others - are designed to leave a small pool of oil on top of the piston when stopped; this helps lubricate the cylinder bores during the first few seconds of running, before oil pressure is built up. Helps make the engine last a whole lot longer! The only downside is smoke when you start as the oil gets burnt off. It's a good thing!
