Injection Pump Update
24 July 2010 | Port Angeles, WA
Ray here- Sunny
After a week now, and way too many hours in the engine room trying to figure out why our engine wouldn't start with the new pump... we finally had to surrender to calling in a specialist for the "no start" problem. Turns out that there were four seals shipped with the injector pump that were misplaced and not installed. Injection pumps in diesel systems are particularly vulnerable to any air leaks in the fuel feed system. No seals means air leaks...thus no start. We ordered a new set of seals (about $2.00 worth)...and they'll be here on Monday...we're about 99% sure this is the issue. Meantime, we're working on the boat taking care of the other issues.
Ray out for now.
