Thanks Dieselboy
Yes I have changed all the filters except the little inline filter close to the engine. All were Yanmar, and racor , racor is the 500 series . The engine starts with the throttle ok and does not spit or sputter and no smoke. I just have never had to use the throttle to start any diesel I have ever had! Check valves is something I need to look into. Should their be a check valve at the filter on the engine. that is the highest spot on the fuel system? Or could I place one their? Dockdozer
