Re: Yanmar 2gm2f no start after fueling


Thanks to everyone on this forum that responded to me and helped out. I finally got the little handle on the pump to work just a bit more by moving the crank till I could feel it going a little lower and with some resistance. I had loosed the engine fuel filter and noticed fuel coming out of it, so after it looked like no bubbles (which it did from when I first noticed it)I went to the seond bleeder down to what lloked like the injector pump. THIS WAS NOT IN THE MANUAL. There I did get air out and the tightened down. As per at least two or three commenters, on this and another site (cruisers), I decided to try starting it before going to the injectors, as I stated the other day (when I got just a cough and stopped because I hadn't warmed the oil and trickle charger was not on one battery). It started right off today, with a little extra help of encouragement with the starter. I ran it under load also and checked all fittings. Good as new!!
Thanks again.
