Thornycroft problems

Hi Adrian,


could you possibly help me out please?


first an easy question, we changed our boat name to Lolo in stead of hakuna mutata, could you change that on the ufo list?


The other question is more difficult. I have an UFO34 with a 38Hp thornycroft engine, I guess original so about 30 years old now. i seem to be losing some oil in my cooling water, so I was wondering whether you have heard of this, of if you know a place were I could find books on this type of engine. I more information is needed I could send it over to you, since all my documentation is on board and i don't have it at hand here at home. Maybe we could post this question on the site, but I don't seem to be able to log a message anymore (or rather, I don't know how to do it)


hope to hear from you soon, kind regards, Paul Geurts

for now the problem seems to be the oil cooler (the one that cooles the oil of the transmission). I am going to replace it and will keep you informed on progress.

kind regards, Paul
