I've recently come into the possession of a working 3 Hp Mianus in a dory converted to inboard power. I have been able to get the engine to run, but I do have a few questions.
What type of grease should be used in the main crank grease cups?
The timer adjustment lever, if it is to the right is that fully retarded timing?
And to the left or handle facing toward the flywheel is that fully advanced?

I'd post a picture but am not sure how.

I have read the tips section but I think these items are not specifically discussed in that document. although the tips document in conjunction with the engine manual have been really very helpful.

Than you,

Bill

Ernie,

I emailed you some pictures, I'm wondering if maybe you did not receive the email?

Have another question if this finds you. I can take it offline via email.

Kind regards

Bill

Bill,
Use plain old everyday wheel bearing grease in the grease cups for the main bearings
Hope this helps

Bill, not sure about the timing on your engine but you can figure it out. Move the lever all the way one way, rotate the engine, note the location of the flywheel key when the ignitor trips. Move the lever to the other extreme and try it again, noting the key, you should be able to tell which is advanced. To reverse these engines you should be able to advance timing all the way, kill the ignition, connect ignition when it's about to stop, high timing should reverse it.

Sorry, I've been away a bit with other projects in the way of this one. I appreciate the feedback from those above regarding the boat and correct materials.... I will post some more pictures and report back once I have a new float from Otto and get this project moving forward more.

Bill
