Re: Fuel lifting pump making noise when first starting engine
Automotive technician here; I recommend my customers avoid NAPA parts if at all possible. If it fails in a car, no big deal. Boats are not cars.
Also, a failed diesel lift pump can cause the injection pump to fail.
lol Well you see, that's the difference between us marine engineers and you Automotive technicians. Whereas you've got to go buy a replacement, we've got one or two spares stuck away in a drawer somewhere and can make the change before you've got your order into NAPA guy.
Two completely different mentalities; sadly, we don't have a NAPA store out there on the briny. lol
