Hi, the engine
for my genset is a Perkins
103-07, which is evidently the same/similar to the Perama
M20. I can see a small fuel
leak coming from what appears to be a fuel
return pipe that runs between the injectors, but at the end of the pipe there is no tubing that runs back to the fuel filter
as on my main engine
, nor is there any fuel coming out of the end of the pipe.
Is anyone out there familiar with a diesel
that doesn't have a fuel return? The two mechanically inclined people I've talked to don't think it's a big deal. What is the purpose of the pipe that runs between the injectors?
I assume to fix the fuel leak I need to remove all the high pressure piping, replace with new washers, and bleed. Should be fun since I know the genset hasn't had any maintenance
in a few years and is shoehorned under the cockpit
. Anything I should watch out for?
