Thank you for trying to help with the post about checking wiring harnesses and such. We did do that as well as check the hoses replace the filters,bleed and rebleed the system out at sea before help was available. The fact plenty of fuel was comming out the bleed screw on the injector pump
but nothing out the injector lines when opened and the engine cranked was what made me believe the EVC was shutting of the fuel via the solenoid.
As far as modifying engines goes, advice etc We give it all the time..
most is excellent.. George has brilliant ideas often..me I'm soo soo
In this case in my mind Volvo withholding information is crimnal..
If I don't know how to start my engine in an emergency
when the electronics
fail but there IS a way to bypass the failed electronics
and start the engine and I lose my boat with perhaps loss of life? I will assume the liability and give the knowledge everytime..I am even going to put a webpage together on EXACTLEY how to do it...because out there on the ocean as you know there are no dealars and parts departments and even though we have sailboats the engines can save your butt like when the Whales come to play with your boat and start to surf your bow wave or your running in the calm before the storm or maybe you just misjudged the current
when you sailed off that mooring
...and the ICW
and inlets? We need to be able to count on our engines and we paid a lot of money
for them usually..to not have manual bypasses or to not let the owners know how to do it is crazy..
I am sorry we can't seem to communicate Pat.. nobody has to take my advice but I give it freely. weather(as you know I'll even download the charts
for you ) , engines, comunications, where to anchor
or visit ,best beaches whatever except where to find lobster
that I hoard..liability issues in case someone get a spine in thier hand...
Sorry this ended up so far off topic...all I was looking for was if anybody had problems like mine that turned out to be the EVC or if any volvo owners knew about the fuel shutoff solenoid or how to simply let the engine start without the EVC involved..I have been a member
here for several years and don't log in often but google
returned these results.
