Hello all! Please help!
I have a Yanmar
YSE 8 in my Columbia
7.6m. Have to replace the fuel
as it has very, very little PSI and is not able to pump
into the injector pump
. It actually never stops ticking which indicates to me that the pump is shot.. when bleeding the lines it "trickles".. I think it should "squirt". It is quite old! After all it is a 1978 boat
. Just not getting any fuel
through the injector pump
or up through the high-pressure line to the injector.. tried bleeding at the last banjo but to no avail.
So, I need to know what PSI is necessary for a new fuel transfer pump.
The original Yanmar
YSE 8 setup had a fuel tank
mounted atop the engine
. My setup has a larger "cruising" tank aft of the engine compartment hence the need for the transfer pump.
Fuel starts in the tank and is pulled through a water
separator, from the separator to the transfer pump, from transfer pump to small fuel element, from element to the injector pump.
Any suggestions as to what PSI pump is needed?
Help is greatly appreciated!!!
P.S. Attached is a picture of the pump currently on the engine. Hitachi PF1-01... I've search... they don't make them anymore.
