Need help getting my "new" D2-40 going

OK, so I installed a brand new D2-40 7 years ago.....

Install went well was running great, on to the rest of the interior re-fit. Then life got in the way Got married, buying house, fixing house's, selling, etc.

So now I'm ready to get finishing the sailboat.

Unfortunately the last time I ran the engine, I didn't shut the fuel valve off The tank sits above the engine so there is head pressure. When I went to get it going the sump was FULL I got it all drained out put new oil in, but it didn't wanna start, and it seems fuel is getting into the sump again just from trying to start the engine.

The lift pump has been by-passed, so it's going in via the pump/manifold My dealer is not sure, called Volvo, they are not sure,....so just wondering if anyone knows where the fuel could be getting into the sump or has any idea's before we pull the fuel rack & start scratching our heads.

Post your problem on boatdiesel. Dick Vosbury is the site's Volvo guru and runs the Annapolis Volvo dealership. He should be able to help.

Sounds like a valve internal to the injection pump is stuck open allowing fuel to flow through.
