Guest Posted October 28, 2010 Share Posted October 28, 2010 Check the wiring on the glow plugs. I had my engine rebuilt at the start of the year so I knew nothing serious was up, but she flatly refused to start. After about an hour of fiddling around bleeding everything (the mechanic at the boatyard said it would be fuel related) I noticed a wire had come out of the crimp on the second glow plug. This meant that only the first one was working. Sure enough she started first time when I put the wire back and gave her 30 seconds of heat. It seems these engines will not start in the cold without using the heaters. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
