TOPIC: Diesel engineer, Thames?

Hello Richard, I suggest that you have an engine that happens to be on a boat. Therefore, perhaps you could find a truck or agricultural mobile engine repair service in the area. Good luck, Brendan

Hi there, I hope you are all staying safe and well.

Could anybody please recommend an engineer to look at my engine?
It's a Mercedes 5 litre diesel engine, originally from a Unimog truck and is in my 15m Dutch barge.
I'm getting lots of blueish smoke and the engine overheats and oil pressure drops after about half an hour of use.
I'm on the Thames at Windsor.

Many thanks and kind regards
Richard
