    Hino EH700 White Smoke-gctid809322

    Last year we bought our 38xx, shipped it from back east to Anacortes and started work. Earl did extensive exhaust rehab and new impellers. We moved the boat from Anacortes to Petersburg Alaska in July 2016. Shortly into the trip we noticed the white smoke. It would come and go but mostly ever present. We lost a thrust washer in a transmission the end of the season so pulled that our and brought it home for rebuild. In the tear down I noticed that the intake to the transmission cooler was plugged. Pieces of impeller had plugged pretty much every hole on the intake side. How any cooling water got through baffles me but the engines ran 160 degrees for over a thousand miles like that. I changed the cooler on the second transmission last week. Same thing. Plugged 100 percent with goo and impeller. Best part of this is that there is no longer any sign of "white smoke". Suggest that this trouble possibility be added to the Hino data base file. I would have fixed this much earlier had I known.


    Anybody want to question durability issues? I'd be nervous about the white smoke for years myself, but that's the way I am.
