We ran into a snag aboard Torsk while we were trying to flush the fresh water system.  Turns out the shutoff valves for the fresh water supply to the diesel fresh water cooling system have no valve discs!  Apparently they corroded away.  We need to be able to isolate the port and stbd systems in order to do the flush.  Anyone have spares? 

We have identified all the valves in the fwd engine room's diesel lube oil system and in the cooling water systems.  We have also cycled the cooling water control valves. 

As for lube oil, the sumps for #1 and #2 diesels are full as are the lube oil storage tanks.  We still need to run an analysis on oil quality.  We are in a holding pattern until warm weather returns.  Those engine room lower levels get darned cold in the winter.

WOW Chief,

Didn't we have one of the valves in the upper part of the FER torn apart 2 work weekends ago only to find out that there weren't any guts left in it? I wonder what in the hell is causing the corosion to be so damned bad and that does bother me about the condition of F/M's and the Woodward Govenors..

Just remember you may have spares in the AER, if you wanna get dirty and hope that there is no fluid in the Aft tanks
