Re: repairing diesel engine on the dry

Stu Jackson :

I must just be permanently lucky then.
I have done it quite a few times.
As long as the engine is running when the hose is pressurised, and the hose turned off before the motor is stopped, there is no way on this earth that water pressure will ever be able to beat exhaust pressures.
I am not keen on the idea if it can be avoided, but it is self-priming and is far easier than filling a bucket. When you are working alone and trying to balance a bucket, it has advantages to use a hose (with a stop fitting on the engine end of it).
