Thank you Paul this is helpful indeed.
We are retired and living at Lake Chapala Mexico (near Guadalajara) and have for 30 years. We moor "Malabar" 5 hours away in a marina in Puerto Vallarta. This is great except when there is a problem with the engine as parts and decent diesel mechanics are hard to come by.Added to this my knowledge of diesel engines is very limited. (I am now making a real effort to educate myself)
The mechanic I am working with has drained the tank and removed the pump and injectors and claims that the pump is o.k but should be cleaned and new gaskets, etc. replaced. The injectors are old and now faulty. He says that parts, filters and new injectors are not available in Mexico, which I can believe from past experience. I am now back in my home in Chapala and trying to locate necessary parts on the internet and get them shipped here.
Any ideas on a source.
Thanks again for filter info this helps greatly.
Saludos, Richard
