The engines running! The engines running!

Ray here...weather - coolish and wet
So, for those of you that have been following...we finally got the injection pump back from Seattle. It came in late Friday evening (naturally) so we had to wait until monday for the mechanic to come out. At 8:30 AM the mechanic arrived and began re-re-re-re-re bleeding the system for the 900th time...and eventually...HO-LA! It finally fired (after extentive phone calls to Seattlle injector again).
Evidently...this all was a very silly problem of a air lock inside the injector pump that wouldn't allow fuel to come through. Drove us all nuts though...When it did finally get staightened away the engine fired right up! Now it starts and runs perfectly everytime.
In the end...I don't wish this kind of exhaustive diagnositc repair on anyone....it took us four weeks and about 14 mechanic hours plus two fuel injection pump mailings to Seattle to get it back to where we were before we started (minus the leak of course). Onward to the next thing.
More updates as we go along.
