Thanks in advance for any advice.
One of my Perkins
normally aspirated, no common rail M92's decided to stop, and stay stopped.
At first I thought it was fuel
contamination, but after changing the primary and secondary filters, bleeding the system to the top of the low pressure on the secondary filter, I get cranking but no ignition.
I have fuel
with no air coming out of the top of the secondary filter banjo when using the lift
pump, so the issue has to be between there and the atomisers.
I've loosened off the high pressure connectors to the atomisers, but am not getting either air or fuel out of them. That is after probably 20 or more 15 second cycles of the starter.
It's a new boat for me, and I have never had Perkins
before. The manuals
I have don't address this failure.
My question - Is there an electric
or mechanical cut-out that may be engaged or not engaging that stops fuel flow from the low pressure side to the high pressure side, and if so, what should I look for.
I'm 40nm off the coast, in a safe anchorage, and still have another engine
if needs be, but would prefer to fix the deadun before pulling the pick.
Any advice more than welcome.
