8. If conditions warrant securing the engine
at any time, secure and notify the bridge and the
9. Make repairs, test out the engine, and, if
it is operating properly, notify the engineer of-
ficer and the bridge.
FUEL OIL CASUALTIES
In addition to casualties which may involve
parts of the fuel oil system within the engine, other
casualties may occur which involve the system out-
side of the engine. Examples of some of the possi-
ble casualties, along with the action to be taken
WATER IN DIESEL FUEL OIL
SERVICE (DAY) TANK
1. Shift fuel oil suction.
2. Notify the engineer officer and the bridge
of the casualty.
3. Drain the water from all filters, strainers,
4. Open all test cocks on the engine, and turn
the engine over until assured that the system is
free of water.
5. Close the test cock. Start the engine. Check
its operation. If operation is normal, notify the
engineer officer and the bridge that the engine is
ready for normal operation.
6. Strip or drain the contaminated service
tank and refill with clean fuel using the fuel oil
INOPERATIVE DIESEL FUEL OIL
1. Line up the diesel purifier to supply the
tank as quickly as possible.
2. Notify the engineer officer of the casualty.
3. In an emergency, line up and use the hand-
operated pump in order to continue operation.
4. At the earliest possible time, inspect and
repair the fuel oil transfer pump.
5. Report the results of the investigation and
repairs to the engineer officer.
HYDRAULIC COUPLING CASUALTIES
Coupling casualties vary with each installa-
tion. The following examples, and the action to
be taken, are applicable to some Fairbanks-Morse
FAILURE OF THE MAIN LUBE OIL
1. Start the standby pump or the lube oil
transfer pump and cut in on the line.
2. Cross-connect the twin hydraulic coupling
3. Notify the engineer officer and the bridge
of the casualty and the emergency measures taken.
4. At the earliest possible time, repair the
hydraulic lube oil pump.
5. Report the repairs completed to the
engineer officer and the bridge, and request per-
mission of the engineer officer to start the pumps.
INOPERATIVE PROPELLER SHAFT
1. Report the casualty to the bridge and the
2. Check the air pressure to the brake.
3. Check the air reducing valve to the brake.
4. Check the electrical and pressure control
switches to the air control valve.
5. If the trouble is not determined and the use
of the engine is required, do the following:
a. Secure the air to the brake system until
proper inspection of the brake shoes and expan-
sion core can be made.
b. Notify the bridge and the engineer of-
ficer that the engine is being operated without the
brake, and that the throttle alone is being used
c. Use extreme caution during the
d. At the earliest possible time, inspect and
repair the brake.
e. Report the repairs to the engineer
INOPERATIVE COUPLING LUBE
OIL REGULATING VALVE
1. Maintain the correct operating pressure by
manually operating the clutch dump valve.
2. Report to the engineer officer and the
bridge. Request permission to secure the engine
