Re: Perkins 4-108 Anti-Stall Adjustment

If that little piston #7 gets stuck it might cause the problem you’re having with the anti stall valve

A guy very familiar with diesels but not my model, a long time boat Captain said whatever the situation with the fuel flow in a closed system if there is fuel that I must have an air leak somewhere? he said that it may be to tiny to see at some fitting and even though at the anti-stall it looks like way to much pretty bubble-free fuel; that after tightening the lock nut air must be getting sucked in somewhere otherwise it would run? It is very logical. everything seems tight and drip and air free and it runs like new with the anti stall screw lock nut loose enough to drip fuel? Still wondering what to do next
Set the anti stall to approx my above settings. What else did you do to the engine? Filter replacement? Pull any lp lines? If you suspect an air leak check all the rubber olives on your filter housing and lift pump. Insert a clear length of hose before your lift pump and pull fuel into a bucket etc. Double check to make sure you didn’t add a second gasket to your filter or didn’t install the o ring. I would install an inline fuel pulp to make this easier as well. Report back

Re: Perkins 4-108 Anti-Stall Adjustment

Ok, I will report back, yes I replaced the water separator and fuel filter. It ran like a jewel before I did this... I am going to do what you suggested. Not running I understand but running good and not leaking except if the anti-stall is loose I do not understand but I will report back the clear line is a good idea so I can see if there are any bubbles.
