Hello and good afternoon,
Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
A natural aspirated diesel can go 10,000, 20,000 hours or more or less depending on how well they are taken care of, a turbo engine or a blower for sake of reference can go 1500, 2500, 5000, 8000+ hours again all depending on how it was used/abused and how well it was maintained. Thus it's honestly hard to put a number on it as you can see. The best thing to do is a marine survey and have an oil/fluid analysis on the engines including also a compression reading and overall major engine survey.
Thank you!
- Joe
