smitch6 Posted February 2, 2010 Share Posted February 2, 2010 hiya folks i have a birchwood 33 with 2 diesel ford 2700 straight 6 engines one works fine good as gold the other i am having problems with when i bought the boat the engines weren't connected no exhausts, fuel lines, electrics, starter etc was connected not even the morse cables so goodchilds connected most stuff for me and got 1 engine running cost me loadsa money but it ran anyway i'm trying to sort the other one out i have done all the fuel lines and spent all day bleeding the thing pumped diesel up to the fuel pump body thingy and then cracked each injector in turn and used the starter motor to try to force the fuel through i started at the back as it was easy to get to after i done 6, 5, 4 it ran not sure if that the right number but the back 3 anyway lol sorry anyway it ran the throttle was fully open and once it was running for a few seconds it went mad revved its guts out i tried to ease the throttle back but no change just kept screaming at me i pulled the stop out and it kept revving eventually after a mad few minutes it died now it won't start at all again i think i may have to bleed it all again hope that makes sense but basically i don't know alot about engines full stop especially a diesel but my 1st thought was injector pump faulty but it could be timing not set up as well any thoughts please as i said i don't know any condition of the engines as the whole boat has been a pain since we bought it a right bog job by the previous owner so i'm not sure what has been done before i owned it i'm based down waveney river cnt if anyone fancies having a look at it thanks steve Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
