Engines / AC2W Reset lever and Cold Cranking Amps
« on: March 22, 2023, 11:09:53 AM »
Hi all
First Post on this forum so if im in the wrong area apologies in advance.
No doubt there are many knowledgeable people on this forum and I'd like to pick your brains.
I recently acquired a boat with a running AC2W engine, no real issues with the engine apart from  being difficult to start (even with 2 x glow plugs, I've been reading these engines do not like cold weather) but my 1st question is the Reset lever on the engine (behind the water pump, low down in the engine) what exactly does this reset and should it be used every start up?
2nd Question, would anyone know the cold cranking current approx of this little 12hp 2cyl diesel? I'm estimating 60-70amps?, im in the process of rewiring the while boat and obviously want to use cables that are up to the job. I do not have access to an amp clamp.
