I gave up on expecting the mechanic
I brought the SAE spanners and an electronic lift
pump from my local truckies shop.
Connected everthing up.
My cries of rage attracted the attention of the owner of the boat on the next berth, a professional diesel mechanic
He opened the bleed screw on the injector pump
. Many bubbles flowed forth and he explained how the injector pump
would not work with air in it.
He cracked one of the nuts on the line to an injector and fuel
The battery died.
On the way home I dropped in on the local battery shop (Power Products of Drummoyne) and paid for a battery to be delivered next morning.
Russell arrived with the battery next morning and installed it on the boat. He even put proper connections on the lift
pump and wired everthing up.
He had to go to work so I completed bleeding the injectors.
I sprayed Aerostart into the engine a few times.
After I stopped using the stop lever as a throttle the engine started.
Runs well now.
Now I have the problem that the steering pedestal
mounted gearchange/throttle will not select neutral. Any suggestions?
