Do you have consistent drops of fuel
coming out of injection lines at the injectors, i believe order should be 1,2,4,3? If you do, then bleeding should be all set.
I just went through first time replacing primary and secondary fuel filter
as part of winterizing 4-108 westerbeke
. I didn't pre-fill filters with fuel
, and it didn't take all that much to get the bubbles out from both Injection pump nipples. I tried starting several time for about 20-30 seconds and it wouldn't start until I loosened all 4 Injection line nuts at the injectors. About 30 seconds of cranking is what it took to get fuel to start coming out of those. Then I tightened them and It started.
As Calder says: cleanliness is next to godliness. Change fuel filters before engine
dies. Considering that engine
died due to dirty fuel, that Injection pump is very sensitive to contaminants. There is a filter screen
at the inlet to IP. After you get the cranking RPMs up, and if you still have trouble starting, I would take a look at IP inlet screen
, and see how bad things are. Call me crazy, but I carry a spare IP.
