Bought a 40' sailboat that was neglected and sat for 3 years with no love
Trying to get the Diesel
stove working, but don't know much about them. It's a Dickinson Adriatic
. Read the manual. We can get it lit, but it doesn't stay lit as the fuel
isn't feeding properly. We think the day tank (which came with fuel
in it) is likely got sludge on the bottom, which is probably interfering with the feed (fuel pump from main diesel
tank to day tank, then gravity feed to stove.) We'd love to get this thing going but don't even know where to start. Any suggestions out there? We're in the Bellingham, WA area. Would love to be able to hire someone to just come and get 'er done.
