I have a Westerbeke
44A which has been running fine for the four years that I've owned the boat. It has 1100 hrs and had the 1000 hr service
completed 2 years ago by Total Yacht Works in Mazatlan. At that time the injectors were pulled and professionally cleaned.
Lately I noticed that I had an accumulation of a little fuel
at the bottom of a wire bundle which was dripping onto the pan. I tracked things up to the fuel
rail to the injectors and used small pieces of blue towel (4"x2") to gauge the amount. I've attached a couple of pics to illustrate. After wiping everything down I ran the engine
for 20 min with the blue towel in place. The first and last injectors leaked slightly. The middle two were dry.
Is this amount of fuel a significant problem?
Can someone tell me the correct sequence to loosen and re-torque the injector and fuel rail connections?
