Re: Perkins 4108 diesel leak at fuel line connections
Perkins are tempermentle, what with olives and cork gaskets to crush. Fine line of torque here. Just enough, but not too much. Not sure why you are loosening all of these? To get my filter off I have to take off the return line, as it blocks access to the top mounting bolt for the filter. Then use the banjo bolt on the line to the fuel injection pump to bleed the air.
I noticed you have an after market kit for the OEM engine fuel filter...I read through your link....
From your link:
To finish the job off properly it is best to renew the seals and washers on the various fuel line connections, so we include a full selection of these in the kit along with a pair of solid brass fuel line sleeve nuts which will not corrode!
Any chance you RTFM'd?
Good luck, damn boats!
