Thought I would try to put some of my thoughts out their.
1. We are getting fuel to all of the injectors. Injector No1 (thanks Bob) still dribling allot of fuel when all the others are squirting fuel out (while bleeding, we have not removed any injectors or the injector pump). As discussed erlier, even if No1 injector is not functioning properly, the motor should still start.
2. We have gone over the system and cannot find any leaks. However, there did appear to be a moist vapour look to one of the clamped hoses at the first inline fuel filter
. We trimed the hose, tightened the fitting and reclamped the hose. We now believe there are no leaks.
If you assume that we have no leaks. What else can stop it from starting?
I do not understand the internal workings of the governor and so far everyone thinks that it has no bearing on my starting problem. But.. The accelerator lever is clearly being obstructed by something internal.
Directly above this lever is the old engine kill lever which still works because I can manually operate it when we are cranking the engine and there is an obvious down turn in the engine.
Now, can the governor if malfunctioning, cause the engine to not start, as would the kill lever if jamed on but that lever cuts the fuel so I know thats not the cause. Correct me if I am wrong.
On another note, could it be possable for the first filter to trap some air in the top and to still get fuel all the way up to the injectors?
This is me clutching at straws.
Sorry about the bad spelling.
Oh yeh, can someone explain why the water should be closed/off why trying to bleed the engine?
