Tom - did you ever find out the problem, or has the engine started since the mechanic started with the spray?

Hi, Don Lucas, yes the engine has been fine since the "Ether Assault" it was just a case of "getting it started!" so the motor could get back to normal.I would suspect that the lift pump is not doing exactly as it is supposed to do so i will have to investigate this before i need to do another secoundry fuel filter change.The big thing for me was that i did everything the pro [mechanic] did and had i resorted to a bit of spray i would have got it started myself. Anyway thanks for asking.

Found that sprays can the other day in the hobby den. Anyone thinking that this product is great can by excused. This company is not normally known for supplying Mickey Mouse product.
Amazing what can be found in workshop manuals.

Chief,
Click on the attachment, then click on it a second and third time. It becomes perfectly readable.

Hey!!
That is really cool. I have missed a bundh of stuff because I did not know that.
Thanks.

PS. How do you get back? I could not do it. I closed out and started all over again. The "back" button was greyed out too!


<edit>

Never mind - it is a new window

Still won't start?

A hint here is that it ran for about 3 seconds after changing the filter then stopped. Sounds like there may have been something loose in the new filter when it was installed. Clearly you understand all of the theories on bleeding etc so I reckon that something must have been sucked into the system that mucks up the flow of fuel. 3 seconds is probably just long enough for paper or wadding or some such thing to be sucked in to the pump. Or is it simply a dodgy filter. Change it again. Don't forget the 'O' rings.
I'd like to know the final answr. Regards Keith

bit of a late reply.....make sure it is diesel coming out of your injectors....injector pumps invariably are half full of water...I know it sounds daft but its true...especially smaller inline injector pumps....its very difficult to tell if just diesel so make sure you really spin motor over with injectors. well open. ,,

If the CVA injection pump on my Perkins were to contain virtually ANY water, it will die and will probably need a rebuilt. Have drowned it twice and needed a rebuilt both times so now I avoid water at all costs and have had no more issues. Water kills injection pumps.
