I did a stupid...
I torqued down the bolt on my lift
pump too hard and stripped the threads in the housing. So.... I've ordered a new lift
pump, and I'll install it this Friday, if it actually arrives on schedule.
is a Yanmar
3GM30F. I will replace the lift pump and the line between the pump and the secondary fuel filter
. My question is this: Will I need to bleed the system before I start the engine
, using the bleed screw on the secondary filter, or should I just install the pump and the line and crank the engine, hoping for the best?
