some new parts..
Heat exchanger is ready, it weights only 15kg and IF my calculations is correct, it will be large enough.
Prelube pump is half ready, need more machining but it can be made that way. Motor is 24VDC 500w, 2500rpm, hope it have enough power to drive double pump. Pump is originally Volvo bus power steering pump with fuel pump in same shaft. vane pump (power steering) drain oil sump, fuel pump make prelube oil pressure. Transmash have to prelube before start because it has no oil feeds in block, all oil go inside hollow crankshaft via rotary connector. When engine is not used for a while, crank drain oil to sump and if engine is started that way, it takes forever to get oil pressure. It will cause bearing damage.
Rotary connector oil supply piece is ready, it feeds also all timing, auxiliary shaftf bearings and valve train lubrication.
Injector pump governor housing had tiny oil leak, housing was bend a little bit after welding. It's now grind straight. Governor housing is very difficult to disassembly and put together!

The generator engine version of this engine uses a rather larger heat-exchanger, keep up the good work looking forward to seeing this in the water, I thought about the same conversion many years ago.
