Lombardini Service manuals
Hi everyone. In case you have missed this, Lombardini provides the shop and user manuals for their engines on line:
Re: Lombardini Service manuals
I have a Goldoni Base 20 (pictured above) with about 200 hours on it that is in the shop for maintenance. It has a Lombardini air cooled diesel in it, a common industrial motor. Lombardini calls for 100 hour maintenance to be done for the cooling fins. That requires removing the blower housing, then the tin work surrounding the piston jugs. The tractor looks like brand new, but I thought I would check the blower housing just for interest. When I removed it, I was shocked. It looked like a squirrel had been nesting in it and was filled with dirt. I used a shop vac to remove the debris, then blew it all out carefully with compressed air. It's a hassle to remove the tin work, but thought I should remove it to ensure it was completely clear. This is a picture of what was still under the tin on the rear cylinder (the front was about the same). These engines are very robust, but apparently do need the fin maintenance. Just a heads up for anyone with an Italian vineyard tractor. I am going to mount a quarter inch screen on the blower housing inlet when I put it all back together.
