What are the components of a boat engine?
A boat engine has the following components, among others:
The alternator supplies electrical energy and charges the battery. The alternator supplies power when the engine is running.
- Starter motor
In the past, you had to turn a crank manually to get an engine to start; nowadays that is the job of the starter motor. The starter motor is always an electric motor. The starter motor is usually located near the crankshaft on the side of the flywheel housing.
- Glow system
Glow plugs and glow wire are part of the glow system of an engine. They ensure that a diesel engine can start when it is still cold.
Lubricants (oil and grease) are necessary to prevent the various rotating parts of the engine from seizing.
- Stop relay
Thanks to a stop relay, the engine stops immediately when you turn it off with the ignition key.
- Diesel fuel filters
These filters filter the diesel fuel, to prevent pump wear. After a while, you have to change the filters. A heavily contaminated or damaged filter can cause your boat to stop.
- Homokinetic drives
Homokinetic drives ensure that the motor is driven at a uniform angular velocity.
- Engine mounts
Engine mounts provide a good and solid foundation that prevents excessive engine movement. An engine mount should be as soft as possible, but still strong enough to carry the weight of the engine, the reverse clutch and a part of the propeller shaft. Read more about a flexible motor arrangement.
