Diesel Engine Overload: Gauge Selection
Could you tell me what gauges you got from ISSPRO? Also, you note that the EGT sensor has a fitting available on the engine. What about the sensor for the turbo pressure? Is there a fitting on the engine for this? And do you need both gauges or will just the EGT do to insure no engine overload?
I installed the ISSPRO (http://www.isspro.com) R609 turbocators (boost gauge and exhaust gas temp) using the following parts:
These were easy to install.
If you have a
factory exhaust mixer (some boat manufacturers use fabrications), then there is
a fitting to test exhaust temp at outlet of turbo that is used in service that
is exactly what you want and easy to find. On the intake side, there is a
fitting on the intake manifold just ahead of the intercooler where you can get
intake manifold pressure. On the 270B, turbo intake pipe connects to the
intercooler via a 3 or 4" casting that adapts from a pipe to the square
intercooler opening. This casting has several capped and threaded fittings any
of which work fine. I used the ones in the forward side of the casting.
