Another day at the boat yard and still nothing exciting to report.
Having tried several positions on the flywheel to get the manual pump to feel more positive and failing, I figured it needs overhauling so went about pulling it off the motor
The first thing I noticed was how loose one of the two mounting bolts was and now suspect that was at least part of the problem. No gasket
Anyway, I'll replace the diaphragm and seals
as per the manual and see where that leads.
Before taking it off, I did try pumping fuel
and did have it at the bleed nut on top the fuel filter
. But then nothing at the injectors. Cranking produced a squirt at one ejector rather than a flow, but nothing on the other. Not sure if the delivery
should be a timed squirt or a flow before the injector but I imagined the latter. Any thoughts?
Spent half the day today a the yacht club AGM
. Bit of a farce a must say!! And in hindsight a waste of an otherwise beautiful day.
