Re: Westerbeke - no start post inj. pump rebuild.
While that's true, it wasn't the cause of the previous failure. When I got the torque wrench I found that I had more than prescribed torque and a subsequent compression test proved that the injector install was fine. (tested via glow plug ports.)
As for the manual, I did that bleeding procedure many times because there wasn't much else to do. As rationalization I'm claiming that the shop found something wrong when they put it on the test bench. They had it in there for an hour before calling me in to see it working. Not sure if that's true... but it relieves me of responsibility for loss of a month on the water. So that's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
6 hours on the lake yesterday (where temps were 10-15 degrees cooler than the 99 on shore) made it all better anyway. I have a boat again so why ask why!
