Re: Polishing fuel filter change procedure

We have a Yanmar gmf30. Similar engine . As long as we fill the Racor to the top with diesel it usually does not involve bleeding.

We always have a small jug of diesel as well as cup with pouring spout to do this as we change our filter at least once in season as well as before winterization.

That being said, you should identify and semi practice how to bleed your injectors. It’s not a hard thing to do. 😀
