rperret is on a distinguished road
project complete

Old banjo bolt removed easily - and seated new bolt without any problem.

Surprisingly the bleed was easy - 5 pumps and fuel was flowing from the first bleed screw - then got lots of air out of the injection pump screw.

Motor started on first crank in 3 seconds.

Current problem solved....impeller is next

MackBoring reps stated to ensure that one doesn't over tighten bleed screw - most people do which causes problems down the road.
