I am the Owner of a 2003 Outremer45 with 3gm30
engines .the boat sat idle for about 18 months before we got it the engines where fired once and awhile by some one looking after it ,they also worked properly during the inspection
and sea trial. They have about 1100 hrs on them. during the refit
we had the tanks
emptied and cleaned and all filters changed and fresh fuel
added .The engines ran well.
After a bouncy trip from Carriacoou to Bequia one engine
quit. The bouncing had dislodged some crap from the tank which clogged the the 10 micron racor fuel filter
. It ran well for 3 hours during a day trip the next day ,but now starts runs for a while and then cuts out as if it is starved for fuel
. I can keep it running by playing the the throttle .with the help of a local engineer
these are the steps we have taken
1 pulled p/u tube in tank
2 checked flow from tank to filter
3 checked flow through racor
4 checked flow to and through and operation of lift
5 checked flow through secondary inline fuel filter
6 checked flow to injector pump
7 bled injector at bleed point
8 checked air intake
all the filters are new and we found no issues right up to the injector pump
thinks that it must be an issue with the pump,he did not jump to that conclusion and has no financial interest in it being the pump so please no comments on that as I was with him all the way . I believe something is intermittently blocking the pump and I hope if I keep using the the engine and not allowing it to stall that it may clear other wise it is a big bill .
Does anyone have any other ideas.
WE are in Bequia at the moment so access to the intraweb is spotty so if I don't respond that is why. I know we will get little sympathy given our location
ps if some one had has good luck with a place to get the pump serviced let me know
