Re: no start Yanmar

Question.! ..anyone know if by using a electric fuel pump on a Yanmar 3Jh3e, in line for bleeding and as a standby in case of mechanical failure, with a 5-7 PSI rating could hurt the diaphragm on the mechanical pump. Some have suggested that this could cause fuel in crankcase. A 2-4.5 PSI pump is available at a much higher cost and delivery time will keep me dockside yet another week. Am anxious to troll-sail for Rockfish in the Chesapeake while the wife is in good humor and busy with the girls.!!!
