We got the motor running. Seemed like every hour or two, it would stop and the fuel injection pump would need to be bled again. Tightened up all the connections and that seemed to help a bit.
Heinz suggested a "lift" tank (see pic). He made a beautiful little tank that seems to do a good job. Time will tell if that solves the problem. Yesterday, when I was taking apart one of the fittings that is now redundant, I detected a loose connection which could have been the source of my problems. There are 2 sights. The near one is to the motor. The one further back is the return to the fuel tank.
We took Karina up to the work dock at Gartside to be informed that it will be 10-14 days for the new mounts to appear from Australia! So we went over to "old home" (Westport Marina where we lived while I did consulting work for the Ministry of Education 20 years ago). They have a 2 week rental for slips which is affordable. We have visited with Tina and David, Carol and Kelly, Paul Hunt, Chris and Jackie.
This weekend the weather looks forthcoming, so we are going to help David and Tina with their fascia on one side of their house.
