Re: Fuel Pump Noise

Thanks for all the help!

It 'sounds' like it's normal then, but I've now got a simple spare for peace of mind. I guess that the only reason to keep the return valve open is to either bleed, which I've accomplished, or to polish the fuel. I wouldn't want to put any unnecessary wear on the pump if it's not needed though.

I've got a few hours of motoring this weekend to move the boat and I'll likely polish the fuel with the valve open before I change the Racor and main filters. After our long New England winter with the fuel topped off and Enzyme Treatment added it seems like a good idea.
