Bukh DV36 VE Injector Pump

I am not able to bleed fuel through the VE pump. The Bosch Ve injector pump was just rebuilt by the agent. After that the engine ran but I starved the fuel supply becasue of a blocked tank vent. I have bled the system through to the VE pump. I even removed the fuel shutoff solenoid and fuel pums out of this port. I can not get fuel to exit the HP lines. What have I done, perhaps knocked the manual shut off ?.

Re: Bukh DV36 VE Injector Pump

Do you have power to the shutdown solenoid? does it faintly click when the ignition is turned on ? If that little solenoid is inoperative for any reason then you have no hope of getting fuel at the High pressure lines.
I doubt that the manual shutoff would be causing the problem because it has a spring that returns it to the run position automatically. If the spring is missing , try the start with the lever fully forward and if no go , try it fully aft.
Turn off the raw water intake to avoid filling the exhaust if you are doing a lot of dead cranking.

Thanks. I have found the problem. The key way on the drive pinion was broken.

Ouch! Any other damage from that? Glad you found the problem, the key is an easy and cheap fix.
