bad injector line

Any one ever run a 6 cyl. Diesel with 1 injector line off. It blew and we are in the middle of nowhere. I can cut line and send fuel back to tank. Think it will work for 2 hours run time? It is a TAMD40B Volvo Penta.

Re: bad injector line

It will work fine if you can decompress the non-working cylinder. Did that with a yanmar QM once, and that was only three cylinders to begin with.

Re: bad injector line

G'day,
It will be ok for that amount of time at reduced rpm say 1500. you can use a catch can to collect bypassed fuel if necessary, do try to over load engine . Your engine is not fitted with any type of decompression dedvice.

Made a temp repair on a Perkins 4.154 using silver solder. It was only a crack though.

I dont carry a torch on board. We made it at 1600 RPMs. I put a tee in the top of the sight tube hose for the exess fuel.
