Universal M25 diesel starting problem
I have a 1983 30' Calatina sailboat with an M25 Universal diesel.
Recently, when I leave the boat overnight it requires bleeding the fuel system or spraying WD-40 down the air intake to start the engine. After this, it will staert and run beautifully all day. The next day, I must either re-bleed the fuel system or spray WD-40 into the air intake to start.
I have already changed all the fuel lines, replaced the electric fuel pump and the fuel filter, all to no avail.
Thanks, Capt. Tom from Mt. Sinai harboe, Long Island.
