    Additional information-engines.
    Twin Dolphin marine petrol engines 12hp. Twin throttle morse control fwd-neutral -forward gear controls at helm. Small petrol auxiliaries have all but disappeared from the new engine market which is now dominated by an ever growing choice of compact, lightweight diesels. But there are still a few small petrol engines being built and recent changes to the DOLPHIN 12 hp two-stroke twin may well prove that two stroke auxiliaries are far from dead! Dolphin Series II. Hardly any owners complain of lacking power through the water!). On went a ZF/Hurth gearbox which as well as giving neutral and reverse capabilities to the Dolphin, also gave them the chance to include a 2:1 gear reduction for a reasonable prop speed. Having fitted the FNR gearbox there was no need for the rather elaborate start/stop switching system. So the Siba Dynastart, fitted to the front of the original Dolphin, was replaced by the more conventional separate starter (All gear driven) and belt driven alternator arrangement. The engine itself has that very “traditional” almost antique look about it and we were interested to hear whether or not Dolphin Engines had taken the opportunity to bring that up to date. But, the only part of the engine they had seen fit to change was the electrics on the ignition side. Gearbox, Alternator & 12v Start etc etc?). Following the example set by most manufacturers of two stroke outboards, Dolphin has adopted electronic ignition in place of the old mechanical contact breakers. This was not so much a modification but more of a logical progression because the contact breakers on the original Dolphin were part of the Dynastart, and, the removal of this provided the ideal chance to ‘modernise’ the ignition. For the most part CD ignition means a complete absence of things to adjust. The electronics that supply the sparks are completely encased in potting resin. This, say its protagonists, makes it totally protected from the rigours of life in a wet environment and is far more reliable than opening and closing contacts. The other side of the argument, however, points out that if a CD ignition unit does go wrong, the only course of action is to replace the unit. A not inexpensive exercise, and, there’s absolutely no way you could effect a temporary repair (keep a spare) to get you home. Old fashioned contact breaker points, on the other hand, can usually be cleaned, adjusted and persuaded to work at least for a little longer. The engine itself is exactly the same as before: “a water cooled three-port, twin-cylinder two stroke with a compression ratio of around 8:1 and & five bearing crankshaft”. Cylinder block and head are raw water cooled by a Jabsco (or Johnson) pump mounted at the front of the engine, belt driven from a crankshaft pulley. A rather surprising feature of this engine is the material mix. It has a light alloy (aluminium base) cylinder head, cast nickel iron cylinder block and aluminium alloy crankcase. More relevant to the cooling system, we were told, was the importance of flushing the waterways through with fresh water to dislodge silt that can settle in the bottom of the cooling passages. The occasional flush through with a hose pipe should keep the waterways in good order but for a real spring- clean, removing the exhaust manifold will enable you to see inside to check that all’s well. Apart from belt tensioning, keeping the plugs clean and properly gapped is virtually the only other piece of maintenance that the engine will need during the sailing season. (See H/book) All the bearings on the crank shaft are lubricated by oil from the two-stroke mixture. Even the winter lay-up demands very little from the owner. There is no engine oil to drain off from the sump (There isn’t one) and provided you have run the carburettor dry after every run, ( See the handbook) that should not need disturbing either. Indeed, the whole philosophy behind looking after your Dolphin seems to be “Leave well alone!” Obviously it’s a good idea to go around the engine once in a while to check that nothing has worked loose. But as far as maintenance involving deep engine exploration is concerned it’s best left well alone We carried out some test runs on a boat that had previously been fitted with a direct drive Dolphin. The installation was very neat, and she started very easily with just a slight enrichment from the tickler on the carburettor and a touch of choke which is automatically closed when the engine is speeded up. (Except with cable operation). Although the exhaust had quite a crackle to it, (it was fitted with a nonstandard waterlock/muffler arrangement), the engine was very smooth with hardly any vibration even at tickover. At higher revs, apart from the engine note, the only way you would know it was running was by watching the flywheel turning. Idle speed, however, needs to be carefully set because the load of the 35 amp alternator cutting in can cause the engine to cough before it is properly warmed up. Like all two-strokes it did not like to be left idling for too long and you should avoid being too timid when engaging drive or you seem to run the risk of stalling the engine. (This rather depends on the cable adjustment – a small adjustment would have improved things considerably). But once we were accustomed to the feel of the combined throttle and gear lever, it responded well and gave power the moment it was asked for. If you are looking for an engine with a substantial weight advantage over its nearest diesel equivalent, and want to save something in the order of £300 to £500 in the bargain; the new Dolphin Series II with a gearbox could be just what you are looking for. N.B Twin optical trigger assemblies for the ignition system, fuel pump, sacrificial anode and Hurth gearbox etc are now standard equipment.
