Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / Motor engine
Italian term or phrase: tribolare
Context:

"La maggiore difficolta nel suo restauro e stata rappresentata dal fatto che nel corso dela sua storia (in Argentina) questo motore era stato utilizzato su un motoscafo e quindi marinizzato: l'azione della salsedine ci ha fatto tribolare non poco nella rimessa in funzione."

Thanks for any help :o)
