Subject: She's running again
In reply to: Randall, Murre, M31 's message, "Running a diesel engine dry...what to do now" on - Tuesday - 08/13/13 - 9:11pm

I printed and took w/me to the boat the Fuji instructions linked to in this post.

The biggest challenge for me was finding the bleeds on the fuel pump as pictured. A careful read of the instructions shows they account for two different types of fuel pumps, of which Murre had the second (which lacks one of the bleeds). But even knowing that, some of the pictures are shot from angles not available to an engine INSIDE the boat, and so this "navigation" of the instructions took the lion's share of the time.

Had to take the sink and step engine covers off to get to some of the bleeds.

I bled from the fuel tank to the secondary filter and then to the fuel pump by hand. I cracked the fuel line nut ON the fuel pump, but never got fuel flow here at all.

Finally cracked the injector nuts while a friend cranked on the engine and she was running w/in 20 seconds.

Phew. I've owned this boat since 2000, and still I find am doing some tasks for the first time.

Thanks again for the quick help.

That's good news Randall. It was my ego I was referring to - I ran my Perkins out of oil, you just the fuel ;)

However, running out of oil could be next on my list. :)
