I pulled the injectors and it was wet where the injectors go into the case, but it was diesel, could have been mixed with water but not a major detectable amount....I'd been trying to start it before so I think it was left over diesel from the fuel pump
I pulled the injectors and tried to fill the cylinders with marvel mystery oil through there, I did notice I could get more mystery oil to drain in when I opened the valve for each cylinder - I'm considering having someone hold the valves open while I pour MMO into each fuel injector slot until it back fills, I assume that's the only way I'll know the whole crank case is full??
I should also drain the oil from the oil pan before I do that and then the whole crank case should be full right?
and let that sit for a while and keep trying to turn the motor manually using the nut on the crankshaft pully, I'll probably try and pull the starter in a few days and turn the flywheel manually, but I tried it with the starter yesterday and no joy
other suggestions welcome! Any tips from someone familiar with a westerbeke 27 would be much appreciated
