OK, changed out a clogged filter and had to figure out how to bleed the system.
I'm a big guy and in a tight space, I can't get my head
around the side of the engine
to see. I've got the manual and looked up pictures online. For the life of me, I can't find the little lever on the fuel pump
to prime the system.
Finally in frustration, I closed the water
supply (so exhaust water
doesn't back up into the engine). Opened the first bleed screw and cranked the engine
. 3 times at 10sec each and got fuel
coming out, did the second with 1 time at 10sec and as soon as diesel
started coming out the engine also came to life.
I was at dock
with shore power
, so I wasn't too worried about running the batteries down.
For future reference: I'm just wondering if there is any harm in doing it this way?
