Re: CAT C12 Marine Propulsion Rebuilt - Low Oil Pressure

We have removed the oil sump and found that the oil strainer was not in good shape. We replaced it and the engine back to normal.C12 Strainer.jpg

Re: CAT C12 Marine Propulsion Rebuilt - Low Oil Pressure

dear alkhulaqi

low oil pressure issue, 

1.is your oil suction pipe installed correctly and seal O ring installed correcly, maybe got leak at this location,

2.is your  oil pressure regulator correct, maybe not adjusted yet

3. please insert manual pressure gauge to compare the actual oil pressure 

 

good luck friend

CAT C12 Marine Propulsion Rebuilt - Low Oil Pressure

We have rebuilt a CAT C12 Marine Propulsion Engine but since then we get a Low Oil Pressure alarm. We have checked virtually every possible cause but we could find the cause of the problem. Before we dismantle the engine what would be other possible causes that we must check ?
