pfirth Thanks for all the good advice guys, it's been helpful as well as educational. I'll be out of town for 3 weeks, and my partner may or may not pick up where I left off depending on his work schedule. Either way I'll keep posting progress and outcome. Thanks again.

MacGyverRI That "could" mean the pump is weaker on one cyl..

An easy test is to take the injectors out and put the fuel lines on them (off the engine) so you can see the spray pattern. Use 2? plastic/glass see through cups and have someone crank the engine so you can look at the patterns.

DO NOT put your hand in front of a firing injector or it will inject you with fuel and you will need a hospital!! Use see through plastic/glass cups to get the visual on a pattern

Patterns should be the same on both if the pump is good.

Sounds logical if the injection fuel pipes were bothed loosened the same amount to bleed. Probably be worth having a shop test the pump the reinstal and check injection pump timing. On my Yanmar you need to shim the pump to set the timing.

casey1999 Please let us know final out come. It would be interesting. If you have unburned fuel and injector spray patern is good, sounds like either worn piston seal or bad valve seal. A compression test ( or pressure drop test) should tell you if this is the problem. Sounds likely as when piston is compressing, leak by would allow unburned fuel into the exhaust. Could try adjusting valves- very basic procedure and instructions in the Yanmar operation manual.
Good luck.

Yes, loose mounting bolts would cause a compression leak.

jrd22 Will it not start at all without starting fluid? Interesting that it ran better, but you really didn't change anything, right? The injectors were not rebuilt? There could be a lot of diesel in the muffler that is still puking out, but that should clear up fairly quickly.
Unless you have access to a diesel compression gauge and the correct fittings you won't be able to do a compression check yourself. Some shops prefer to do a bleed down test using compressed air and measuring how long the cylinders will hold a certain PSI.

pfirth Just replaced the injectors. Engine started right up with a little starting fluid, ran better than in a long time, but still dumping a lot of raw fuel through the exhaust, so could only run it momentarily. Is compression test and injection timing check something I can do?

I'll try checking the rest of the exhaust system, but seems to run too well for much back pressure.

casey1999 The line that was clogged, are you refering to the cooling water line that goes to the exhaust elbow?

Maybe you should check that the entire exhaust system after the elbow to the stern of the boat is clear and not clogged causing excessive back pressure on the engine exhaust.

haffiman37 Providing your injectors performs as to specs when it comes to opening pressure, no 'drips' and spray pattern, I would do a compression test.
The pump clearly gives fuel needed and a bit more, engine does not burn it!
That pump can not start giving more than it is set to deliver, however it might give it later.
Suggestion:
1: Do an injection timing check.
2;Do a compression check on both cold and hot engine.
