Thanks again for all the responses. I took off all openings on the fuel tank
. There is no screen
on the intake. Both intake and return are 1/4 " copper pipe in the tank. I accessed the largest opening - the fuel
capacity gauge - and attached a clean new cloth to some tongs and sloshed that through the diesel
in the tank, scraping the bottom as much as I could. The cloth was really pretty clean when it came out. I was expecting particles or smear to be visible. I also disassembled the primary filter so I could change all gaskets. I changed the primary filter.
I checked the hoses and clamps I could access.
will idle for about 5 to 10 minutes. Then it will run at about 1200 or 1500 for 20 minutes or so before stalling. Each time it stalls I have to set the revs a bit higher in order to restart it. I do not have to prime the engine each time. When running at over 2000 rpm
it doesn't stall but will lose revs then pick up again.
I will try to get some of the Archoill additive tomorrow. Someone at the marina here wondered about the injectors.
